Why Kickstarter Outfunding the NEA Isn’t a Good Thing


“Steve Lambert raised money using Kickstarter for a project not-so-ironically titled “Capitalism Works for Me.” This project, as he says, was “more ambitious than what a nonprofit could do,” and there was a limited timeline for the project. So he jumped on Kickstarter, and in only 30 days he was able to raise $16,000. Does this mean capitalism works? Or government is broken? Or neither at all? Lambert asks friends on Kickstarter to make capitalism work for him.”
