A dependence on growth

Im fascinated by a reliance on growth for sustainability – organizations unable to sustain themselves if it weren’t for new business. It strikes me that this reliance on growth to remain sustainable or viable in the long term will inevitably lead to a crash, yet still it seems this drives our economy and now even charities.

Moreover the growth itself relies on borrowing thus creating a further artificial value or economic bubble.

Social investment

Is social investment a new opportunity for charities or a risky foray that could destabilize the sector – allowing their over leveraging and building a shareholder relationship which will drive decisions based on a profit motive.

Is it just donating by another name?

If charities have enormous surpluses or reserves why is it necessary?
