A not-for-profit economy changes the game by decentralizing wealth and power, while maintaining incentives for innovation and increasing people's desire for meaningful work.

When Reagan removed the basic charitable deduction he ruined everything for charities and the tax payers.

i have my doubts; capitalism is still there... I hope people switch before it's too late. Capitalism has no future.

Sounds like it could work, however, they're forgetting one (or rather many) thing - How does one go about toppling Wall Street and the Mega-Corps??? I doubt that this kind of business could flourish in our world of Big Business.

O, if only this dream became reality. Non-profit business was on the rise in Holland too, but it only took the first signs of financial crisis to emerge and everything unravelled. It also became clear that for some companies on-profit was only that for the workers on the floor, but the executives went home with the same insane salaries as in the profit sector, leaving very little profit to be re-invested or shared. Marginally, something is being done about it, but a lot still have these salaries/bonuses/pension plans and a lot of non-profit companies have expired.
Human greed is very hard to fight.

I don't believe there is any such thing as a "not for profit organisation" it might not seem so, but extremely high wages and benefits more than compensate for investments.
Like the local charity in Perth, the wife of the charity manager really wanted a car, so' a brand new position was created for her, "OFFICE MANAGERESS" this would justify supplying her with a new Volvo, cost $50,000.
