This is fascinating stuff. Why doesn't Bill Gates give money to people on the street (he has said he plans on giving away 90% of his wealth at minimum)?

Does it do more harm than good? Does it lead to more misery and human suffering?

The answers are not simple. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation take a very interesting approach -- check it out.

.

So he is going to give away 90%,big deal,should still leave him with 10 billion to play with.
If he had wanted to help a lot of people in the world he could have kept the price of his software at a reasonable level,then he would have no need to act like a messiah curing the worlds woes.
