Urban Institute author Joseph J. Cordes talks about the recession's effect on nonprofits and the premise behind his book, Nonprofits and Business. The book, coedited with C. Eugene Steuerle, examines an emerging trend blurring the lines between these two sectors as nonprofits adopt more business-like practices and for profit businesses take on charitable activities.
Joseph J. Cordes is an Urban Institute Affiliated Scholar and George Washington University's associate director of the Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration and professor of economics, public policy and public administration, and international affairs.
