Antony Bugg-Levine is a managing director at The Rockefeller Foundation, where he has helped develop impact investing: using private capital to deal with social problems and generate earnings. His book, Impact Investing: Transforming How We Make Money While Making a Difference, comes out later this year.

People invariably say they'd help more if they had proof that their dollars were having the intended effect. So we've developed a measurement system, and in the future, we'll introduce a rating agency that grades projects in much the same way Moody's rates bonds.
