“Arthur Brooks,”:http://www.arthurbrooks.net/author.html a professor at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Public Affairs, has a new book out about who really gives to charity. It’s called “Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism.”
The title apparently comes from his finding that political conservatives give more to charity than liberals. I guess we are supposed to believe the opposite.
He also finds that religious folks are far more generous than “secularists,” to both religious and non-religious causes. A religious person is 57 percent more likely than a secularist to help a homeless person, he writes.
Brooks is a frequent contributor to the Wall Street Journal’s op-ed pages, where conservative voices are always welcome.
