Carnegie/Nobel – Stipend/Prize – US$ 1 500!
TRANSCEND MEMBERS, 17 Nov 2014
An email from a friend in the US really made my (birth)day! Quote:
”Dear Fredrik, Last Friday I went to an event organized by the Carnegie Corporation on the anniversary of the end of WWI. I was struck by how similar Andrew Carnegie’s ideas, as well as his philanthropy, were to Alfred Nobel’s. Do you know whether they were ever in contact? All best, Peter [Weiss]”
These are Peter´s questions: Why the similarities? Were Carnegie and Nobel ever in contact? And this is mine: Why is the connection so interesting – and consequential?
The best reply to these questions (in my sole and final evaluation, based on research presented in my books – see nobelwill.org) will receive from me a stipend of US$ 1 500.
Send your reply with address, phone (and age) to firstname.lastname@example.org by Dec. 2, 2014.
The winner will be announced at the Nobel peace event at Orust (Sweden) on Dec. 6, 2014 and published at nobelwill.org.
