Sabith Khan is an Assistant Professor at the School of Management at California Lutheran University. He's passionately interested in what drives us to give our hard-earned money to good causes and how this affects civil society, religion, and politics. Charity and philanthropy are becoming increasingly crucial as fields of study, given the growing importance of non-state actors such as civil society groups and nonprofit organizations in our society. The introduction of Automation, Artificial Intelligence and new forms of production are sure to upend the existing models of production, in what scholars and thinkers are calling the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution.’ This is bound to have a profound impact on our societies, around the world. Sabith's research agenda is to examine these changes in the realm of nonprofit organizations, technologies, governance systems and help chart a path towards managing these rapid changes. He is particularly drawn towards examining the old as well as the new: religious, cultural and governmental systems as much as technological systems that seem to be emerging fast and dominating our consciousness. Our conversation covered; • His academic background, • What drew him into studying Public Policy and Administration, • Why he loves teaching, • Statistics about charitable giving that are eye-opening, • What about conflict countries? • What are remittances and why are they such a large part of the economy?
