Zoltan J Acs, Why Philanthropy Matters: how the wealthy give, and what it means for our economic well-being. This book provides a different perspective on the development of capitalism by highlighting philanthropy’s critical links to economic progress, heath and future from a USA perspective. Acs argues that philanthropy achieves three critical outcomes: He believes philanthropy complements government in creating public goods and by focussing on education, science and medicine and philanthropy has had a positive effect on economic growth and productivity. Acs argues that philanthropy has given an edge to capitalism by promoting vital forces necessary for technological innovation, economic equality and economic security.

In order to successfully negotiate complex charitable gifts development officers need to understand the concepts of charitable gift planning and be able to explain them in clear and convincing language.
