Summary

In this episode, Dr. Llewellyn Cornelius talks about our attitudes and processes for giving to the less fortunate. In many instances, giving can change our attitude toward those in need and the giver can become addicted to charity, as opposed to helping people or groups become independent. If motives are not carefully observed, there is potential for a power dynamic to emerge. Examples discussed include charitable giving to Haiti after the massive earthquake in 2010 and aid to other foreign nations. Cornelius also discusses the need to investigate where charitable donations are spent, to ensure that resources are directed toward the areas to which they were intended.
