Social Entrepreneurship: Good or Just Good Marketing?

Hosted by  • 

If you walk the aisles of Whole Foods this holiday season, you’ll find stands dedicated to “gifts that give back” -- everything from soaps wrapped in earthy packaging that promise to fight poverty to hand crafted bracelets that support community development in Kenya.
