Twitter Top Ten
A new treasure trove of financial inclusion data.
A significant milestone for the B Corp movement.
And to coincide with tax day in the U.S., a handy guide on where to donate – and a thought-provoking post on the surprising way America’s tax system benefits the poor.
These are just a few of the highlights of this week’s Twitter Top 10 – along with our usual selection of resources, trends and insights from the worlds of social enterprise, financial inclusion and global health.
As always, you’re welcome to suggest tweets for next week’s Top 10 post. Please tweet general social enterprise topics to @NextBillion or NB managing editor @ScotterAnderson, global health topics to @NextBillionHC and financial inclusion and impact investing topics to @NextBillionFI.
