By Josh Mailman

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, November 15, 2002

The author examines three trends that social activists can use to effect positive social change. Themes include: the potential role of business in creating a more ethical form of globalization; "asynchronous philanthropy," defined as the use of limited philanthropic funds to leverage the tremendous resources of commercial organizations, governments and international bodies; and, the role of the "wild card," the single person of tremendous influence who can act on his or her own to be a catalyst for great social change.
