Forbes story on a "philanthropy food fight" focuses on statistics brouhaha: Giving USA vs. Atlas of Giving on 2013 charitable giving in US.
"A winter storm of controversy churned through the normally placid uplands of professional philanthropy this week, pitting academic vs. academic and creating a running battle over just how much Americans gave away to charitable causes last year. This particular Comptroller Vortex brought the esoteric world of accounting, measurement, financial forecasting and algorithms into public scrutiny, touching off a running skirmish between the old guard philanthropy measurement geeks and the upstarts." -- Tom Watson, Forbes
