Politics and Government
The historical emergence of philanthrocapitalism, the development of market relations through philanthropic giving, as a theory and praxis of attaining global justice is called into question by the relationship that philanthrocapitalists have with state actors and international governance organizations that facilitate regulatory capture and increased economic inequality. This paper is an attempt to revise the philosophical underpinnings of the philanthrocapitalist movement by applying Lea Ypi’s statist cosmopolitan model of political agency to the institutions that foster philanthrocapitalist institutions.
