Earth to Bill Gates: Thank you
This little editorial that appeared recently is (obviously) dancing on the fringe of cheesiness, but it begs an interesting question about philanthropy and the world's richest man. Gates appeared
on Bill Moyers' NOW
last night, and was reasonably candid (he used the phrase "failure of capitalism"), mentioning more than once that he intended to give away ~95%
of his wealth, mostly to aid public health. Our perceptions
of his politics aside, it would seem as if Gates intends to go out with a humanist bang.
