The private sector must engage in democracy

Daniel Sachs recently engaged in an interview for Alliance Magazine with Sarah Durieux and Jeff Kwasi Klein from Multitudes Foundation, discussing the need for philanthropists, business leaders, and other private sector actors to invest in democracy. In the article, Daniel emphasizes two key reasons:

1) Self-interest: The private sector relies on democratic, free societies with robust institutions, strong rule of law, and the protection of human rights for its own prosperity.

2) Responsibility: Those who have benefited from living in democratic societies have an obligation to give back to restore trust in democratic systems, particularly during times when they are contested.

Daniel concludes that regardless of one’s philanthropic goals, dedicating a portion of resources to non-partisan initiatives aimed at revitalizing political and democratic systems should be of existential importance to all philanthropists.
