This may provide a great opportunity to enlighten him with the concept that one may first need to be a capitalist in order to later be a philanthropist. For example, the Davidsons created educational software, which enabled them to fund the Davidson Institute of Talent Development (DITD), including this Gifted Issues Discussion Forum. smile Benevolence, ethics, and social benefit are not mutually exclusive with capitalism.
