All you can eat Buffet
» Home : Blog : June 2006
A news story that sounds like the Onion but is not: Warren Buffet giving most of his money away... to Bill Gates. I understand the notion of giving huge sums of money away. And I think Bill Gates is doing great stuff with his Gates Foundation. But isn't there something to be said for diversity? The $32B that Buffet is giving to the Gates Foundation could create a really big foundation all by itself (as big as the mighty Gates Foundation is now). It could do similar work to the Gates Foundation if it wanted to, but could go in a different direction if it was important to. The rich get richer I guess. The good news is that the Gates Foundation is using the money to do good work.
