What Effect Will Fed. Clawback Of Madoff Funds Have On Shapiro Philanthropy?

What Effect Will Fed. Clawback Of Madoff Funds Have On Shapiro Philanthropy?: 97-year-old Boston-area apparel entrepreneur Carl Shapiro has agreed to forfeit $625 million to investors who lost money in jailed financier Bernard Madoff's fraud. Shapiro – a longtime Madoff friend – is one of Boston’s most generous philanthropists. So what effect – if any will the federal clawback have on his ability to give going forward? Dan Pallotta, an expert in nonprofit sector innovation, says one lesson we can all take away from this, is that non-profits have to be more indendependent, committed to their own fundraising and less dependent on foundational donors.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
