This is the corruption measured on the Center for Public Integrity Study that gave Maryland the (D-). Our entire government is captured by these non-profit entities. I said earlier that if we intend to take back our Democracy, we must narrow the influence of these groups. THIS IS THE FIRST STEP IN FIGHTING CORRUPTION IN YOUR STATE! Below you see an umbrella organization for these non-profits who are redeveloping Baltimore in their image. Want a grant to upgrade your community program.....no funding available if it has not been designed and approved by a development company.
Below you'll see the Association of Baltimore Area Grantmakers. There is so much money here that you'd wonder why an underserved community can't keep a recreation center....well, it's because the non-profits have decided to move the people out of that neighborhood to start a new one. Sound expensive? No worry, they will just label it an Enterprise Zone and get all kinds of taxpayer money for luxury development from state and federal government. The neightborhood that long tried to get the city or grants to keep their community safe and growing? FORGET ABOUT IT!
Redefining Capital: A Forum Series on Baltimore's Next Economy .
Summary What will the next economy look like for Greater Baltimore? How can we work together to attract new investment and growth and expand opportunity for all residents of the region?
These are the questions at the heart of the four-part series Redefining Capital sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond and a host of public and private partners.
The Redefining Capital series will be held on four Thursdays starting this spring and continuing through the fall, with discussions ranging from three to six hours at the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond’s Baltimore Branch.
The series will kick-off on April 26 with the first session The Next Economy: Redefining Human Capital and Enhancing Economy Growth. The session will discuss the release of The Brookings Institution’s ambitious new study that challenges the popular view of Greater Baltimore as a struggling post-industrial region and focuses instead on the kind of growth and strategies that can be fostered to create an “opportunity-rich” regional economy. Panel discussions on the region’s next economy, building human capital, and learning from experiences in other U.S. regions will follow.
Please also mark your calendars for future dates in this exciting forum series.
