What Are Foundations For?

Are foundations “total scandals” in the words of Judge Richard Posner? Foundations are rarely held under normal electoral or market accountability standards, receive generous tax breaks, and have few transparency requirements. In this final Democracy Seminar of the semester, Rob Reich will explore both how foundations have gained legitimacy in democratic society and how, in spite of their plutocratic power, foundations have the opportunity to play an important, supportive role in democracy. Phil Buchanan, Christine Letts, and Eric Beerbohm will serve as respondents.
