On those days when the philanthropoids are all atwitter in their latest paroxism of market fetishism, I just want to go out an hug an anthropologist, a philosopher, or even a cranky historian with bad breath to get some fresh air on the matter.

Caroline Fiennes has similar thoughts in Forget Business: Philanthropy Needs to Learn From Tons of Other Businesses...

"donors and charities should hire staff from a broader pool. Foundations are often particularly narrow, staffed entirely by people with business backgrounds, and perhaps a few aid-wonks. If you have three business people, then you have enough: your next hire should have studied physics or epidemiology or psychology."

Thanks for the link, Tidy Sum. If you already have three MBAs on staff, I wonder if your next hire should be a priest.
