When More Isn't Better: Welfare NGOs and Increasing Income Inequality
Document type: Interview
Interviewee(s): Berrone, Pascual
Sponsor(s): IESE Insight
Languages: Spanish / English
How to reduce income inequality? A study challenges the conventional wisdom that more is better when it comes to welfare NGOs. IESE's Pascual Berrone and co-authors find that, after a certain point, having more NGOs actually increases income inequality because they battle for resources. The message is clear: even in altruism, competition can't be ignored.
