Three magic money making words: “It’s Harvard calling.” The ivy league school raised more money last year than any U.S. college ever. But they’re not the only ones seeing booms in donations. Plus, there’s more money on the way at Yahoo once it transfers ownership of its remaining stake in Alibaba. So what’s next for the company? And the next time you’re reading a magazine, the article you’re perusing could very well be an ad. More on that. Also on the program, we’ll talk about how the number of homeless children in the U.S. has grown to an all-time high, but the number of resources allocated to help them has not.
