New frontiers in funding, philanthropy and investment

“How do we look at the stretch of colonial capitalism, and I put those two words very meaningfully and intentionally together, because often we talk about colonization on the one hand, and we talk about capitalism on the other — they are very much a stretch of the same historical processes.
