Nonprofits should be run like businesses, its adherents say, and businesses can find new sources of revenue by marketing goods and services that benefit society. Dubbed "philanthrocapitalism," its supporters believe that business principles can and should be the primary drivers of social transformation. What could be wrong with that?

Some business practices can be beneficial to nonprofits, and it's definitely a good thing that the for-profit sector is developing a social conscience.
