Today's episode is a reflection on the role of foundations and non-profit organizations in the political economy of Minneapolis. We take a close look at the McKnight Foundation's interjection of a $250,000 grant at a critical moment in the struggle over the Upper Harbor Terminal, assessing the implications and impacts of that grant. We also use Blue Cross Blue Shields Foundation and the Pohlad Foundation as case studies for how foundations and non-profits consolidate ruling class power. We close with some thoughts on organizing within, against and beyond the Non-Profit Industrial Complex. Isaac goes off with a soundscape that brings it all together and gives it life.
