Imagine the San Francisco Examiner actually printing something like this:

- Affluence and giving: Author Claire Guadiani describes the "virtuous cycle" of the relationship
of philanthropic investment to our economy and democracy.
"The cycle begins when philanthropists make unregulated investments that create opportunities such as educational scholarships and research grants.
This generosity builds opportunities for advancement that would have been impossible
otherwise. Thus, the second step in the cycle: Opportunity builds prosperity. Prosperity inspires
gratitude. People grateful for the prosperity they experience want to give back. Gratitude inspires generosity, and they freely give generously – beginning again this cycle that defines American
affluence." Source: San Francisco Examiner
