Fleming on Small-Dollar Loans, Foundations, and Regulatory Reform

HistPhil, “a web publication on the history of the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors, with a particular emphasis on how history can shed light on contemporary philanthropic issues and practice,” has been hosting an on-going forum on philanthropy and the state.  A recent contribution, by my Georgetown Law colleague Anne Fleming, is The Changing Role of Foundations in Regulatory Reform: The Case of Small-Dollar Loan Reform.  It is a summary of the paper Professor Fleming gave as a member of a panel on “Private Foundations and Public Policy” at the recent Policy History Conference in Nashville.
