Crowdfunding is "open source" financing. Individuals come together to support, via small donations or investments, a person, project or product.
Crowdfunding is "open source" financing. Individuals come together to support, via small donations or investments, a person, project or product. This technique is implemented using crowdfunding websites and social media tools. Crowdfunding has the potential to significantly enhance small business growth in Washington DC and elsewhere. The technique is already gathering momentum, reflecting entrepreneurs' growing displeasure with institutional finance and its increasingly obvious flaws. The exponential spread of social media has facilitated this phenomena. Our aim is to increase public awareness of crowdfunding by giving current and potential business owners a chance to tell their story, share their dreams and raise start-up and/or expansion capital.

A conversation I had with Robert Shimer, Chair, Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics and the Alvin H. Baum Professor in Economics and the College on Friday, November 9, 2018 in the Cedar Room of The International Monetary Fund (IMF).
As its new chair, Professor Shimer provided an update on the current state of and future plans for the department, from which I graduated in 1982.
In response to a query I made about the number of African American male faculty members in the Department, Mr. Shiner indicated there were none, that the African American enrollment at the University appears to be falling.
When I suggested making an effort to change this, Mr. Shiner indicated he was concerned about “lowering the Department’s standards” by focusing on diversity.
Let me be clear. I suggest raising, not lowering, standards.
