Irish government launches philanthropy initiative, but is "American-style" the way to go, or does it conflict with nation's self-image?

"Last week the Government launched its campaign to encourage philanthropy. One Percent Difference seems to be a broad church, aimed at everything from the pennies of the poor to the fortunes of the elite. The first part is compatible with what we understand as charity and have always understood to be so; the latter raises fundamental issues that may not sit quite so easily with us." -- John McManus, the Irish Times
