Brain teaser Questions

  1. Robert Kaplan describes “people like ourselves — middle-class American and European readers of magazines like this one—as similar to riders in a stretch limousine, making our way through a mob of ragged and desperate people moving in the opposite direction” Is this how you picture yourself? Are the classes moving further apart as depicted in this statement? What would leaders of Kiva have to say about this?

2. How influential was the media in the success of the Kiva organization?

3. What does it mean to be a social entrepreneur? Everyone loves a feel good story, so in honor of the devil’s advocate side in me, are social entrepreneurs all their hyped up to me? What is the real motivation behind becoming one? Social responsibility vs. personal gain.
