TFIN Webinar – Using Private Capital for Social Change and the Dangers of Privatization: A Conversation with In The Public Interest
Impact investing often means using private capital to achieve a social result in areas that have historically been part of the public sphere, with democratic processes and safeguards. 

Besides the theoretical issues, private investments – and the private control that comes with them – have led to instances of negative results, from charter schools to the privatization of parking meters in Chicago. 

As private capital (aligned or otherwise) will continue to flow into public activities, we need to tackle the question of how it can play its role properly, without exacerbating problems or cannibalizing the public domain. In this webinar, we will learn about considerations around privatization from In The Public Interest, a comprehensive research and policy center committed to promoting the values, vision, and agenda for the common good and democratic control of public goods and services. ITPI has issued practical guidance for investors to evaluate the potential and the consequences of privatization. 

This conversation with Shahrzad Habibi and Donald Cohen from ITPI will be thought-provoking and will offer concrete support to investors concerned with the broader, systemic effect of their activities on the public.
