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?

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.

The expression, "No good deed ever goes unpunished" comes to mind.
