  1. Beth, An interesting coincidence, noting first you’re in North Carolina, since the org that I now run from the UK was founded in Chapel Hill. People-Centered Economic Development took its first social business project to Russia to leverage a microfinance bank, and now works in Ukraine.
    What’s interesting right now is that the P-CED social capitalism based model seems to have become mainstream in the launch of “creative capitalism” by Bill Gates. An interesting blog on this subject can be found at


  2. Hi Jeff – I’m actually also Jeff, not Beth (although I do link to and regularly read Beth Kanter’s excellent “Beth’s Blog”). I’m actually out of town with limited internet access right now, but will check out your suggested link on Monday. Thanks!
