When it comes to helping populations in crisis, is it better to hand out cash or donate goods? It is an ongoing debate in the non-profit sector. Owen Barder, senior fellow and director for Europe at the Centre for Global Development in London, explains why he thinks cash handouts work better. Also, activist and fund-raiser Dan Pallotta tells us why he believes non-profit organisations should be allowed to take the same risks as private business, and we hear why Phil Buchanan, president of the Centre for Effective Philanthropy, disagrees. Plus, Gilles Carbonnier, professor of development economics at the Graduate Institute in Geneva and author of a book called Humanitarian Economics, tells us how aid organisations and business are increasingly working together.
