it really is crazy though. some of these dudes could have profoundly positive impacts on the world, and still have enough left over to remain obscenely wealthy, they simply choose not to.
It's their money, they can do what they want.

When you accumulate money like that, then you should do some great things with it. Let us know when you do, we'll make a thread about it

you don't end world hunger by giving people money to buy food
I didnt say that did I. I'm sorry, surface level thinkers usually become confused when trying to dig deep. It takes practice. Foundation can not have too many of cracks. I was providing an illustration on how much money he has compared to the world's population. His money can not take care of billions of people alone smart guy. Yall the ones who think his money will help take care of world hunger.

So this ending world hunger thing. How does that work out. X billion dollars will feed the world for the remainder of time(obviously not)? Develop infrastructure, services, places to grow crops and be sustained until the end of time? What exactly does "end world hunger" mean?

Gates story isn't rags to riches, Think about how he got into Harvard in the first place, He was around moguls at the time his advisors & friends of his family were influential people; By design he hasn't really needed to struggle as much as the average entrepreneur does.
Bro, the chances of even getting to a billion in revenue is .006%. Microsoft makes 125 billion a year. It doesnít matter how many connections you have, you have to grind to get to that level. There are tons of people with connections that end up nowhere or their company shuts down after years of hard work. Microsoft is a leader and has been for years now in a space where every year thereís a significant change, itís impressive

I think people are misunderstanding Gates. He is already donating half his money when he dies. His issue is losing 100 bill and it literally does nothing.
He's not losing 100 billion, and yes... Taxing the wealthy will do something.

everyone is looking for handouts...america is the place you can literally create your own destiny but everyone is so fu*king lazy its pathetic...it isnt what you know, its who you know and get lucky on the ride to the top. Being able to network and negotiate can change your life but everyone is anti-social now and mad at people that did something in life.
They think tweeting or making a post on instagram is enough lol.

fu*k that itís their money. fu*k is the Gov going to do with it?
Start another war, check!
Blow up some more buildings, check!
Theyíll never just distribute wealth or eradicate homelessness. n*ggas in

America live off of hope and threat. You wake up everyday and hope you can do something to get more than you had yesterday, under the threat of fu*king up and losing what you have.

America can not run without having, haves and have nots. Get a fu*king job and have bi*ches.
Exactly! There will always be rich and poor. It's been like that since the beginning of time

People are so stupid and a bunch hypocrites. I am sure most if not all people in the entire country would do the same with their money if they were billionaires, I bet 95% of people don’t even donate a dollar to charity.To top it off you can’t be mad that someone is making money and hoarding it when we practice capitalism. Mad at a capitalist being a capitalist, get off your a*s and get your own billion

All these "privileged" folks talking about Bill needs to help them out. Nah... if anything we need the government to stop spending trillions, playing global police and dropping Gates wealth over in Israel. ADOS first...

Tax him for what?

The Govt is just gonna keep all of that and do nothing.

How about help black communities by better policing, better infrastructures in our communities, more jobs in our communities, schools to prepare the youth for the future, after school activities etc.

Theyíll take that 100B and do nothing with it at all!!!!

im on both sides of this. on one hand if youve seen how this government wastes your tax dollars you might be apprehensive to hand it to them too. the other side is capitalism made these people super rich so its only natural that they help keep the country healthy.

if you overtax the rich they will just leave the country for barbados or some sh*t

n*gga we dont wanna take there money we is not blaming them from the world problems,

there's no reason for Jeff bozo's to be having the same taxes to a upper middle class lower six figure american at all

Yall going crazy to defend these billionaires holla at me when these billionaires protest for u when the irs repossess your sh*t and you owe back taxes

Gates would pay $6.379 billion out of a net worth $170,000,000,000.

"Bill and Melinda Gates have been named the most generous philanthropists in the US. The philanthropists have donated more than $36 billion to charitable causes, including $4.8 billion last year."

n*ggas haven't given $1 to anything that hasn't benefited them in their lives and they are counting another n*ggas money.

Net worth is a funny thing to me. It's a guess/estimate...educated albeit. You don't know how much your house is worth until you sell it....and that's pretty much the case with anything else in the world.

And it will be like that to the end of it. America is still an outlaw country. Other countries around the world have eliminated homelessness and hunger. But they have no fu*king army to speak of. The US made its decision a long time ago and they ainít looking back. Theyíll take that money and bomb Iran though. Thank Bill.

Tough call. I know, Bill gates could singlehandedly house all the homeless in America...



With that said.

1. Capitalism is like a casino. Most people will lose but everybody needs to feel like they have a shot at limitless riches in order for the game to continue.



2. Bill gates took a helluva entrepreneur's risk by dropping out of Harvard to start Microsoft. Likewise, Jeff Beezos started Amazon out of his garage for less money than his current job and at a risk of losing it all.



They deserve it. Amazon & Microsoft have facilitated in the making of so many more millionaires, and have helped feed thousands.

Normally, you get rich by enriching others.
If Microsoft failed then Bill would of went back to school and been a millionaire. Him and Jeff already came from wealth.

People so happy to tell Gates he can survive on $6 billion. That man earned every fu*king penny and shouldn’t have to be taxed any more than the common man. Taxing billionaires into oblivion is ridiculous. If he wants be a Scrooge and never give back, who are we to force anything else?

Funny to see broke folks telling rich folks how to handle their money
