The Weekly Balance Sheet: June 21

A list of the great articles from around the web that I’ve read from June 14 – June 20, 2010.  This week’s categories include: Governance & Strategy; Social Media, Internet & Fundraising; Jewish/Israel (Nonprofit) News; and Economics & Finance.

I’m still tinkering with the format. Your comments are always appreciated. Enjoy.
