I just read this article on the Wall Street Journal that conducted an interview with Bill Gates who expresses the need for what he calls â€œCreative Capitalismâ€. Essentially, he expresses in quote:
we have to find a way to make the aspects of capitalism that serve wealthier people serve poorer people as well.
You can see a video of it here:
I guess the main criticism of these types of topics would be that you have to be at a certain level yourself to be able to help others in a grand impacting scale. When I think about it personally purely from a financial point of view, it almost makes more sense for say a billionaire to try and help create say another 100 millionaires out of a pool of worthy candidates instead of trying to immediately solve the cause through their own direct means.
With a bigger pool of people now who are in a good position to help, it should make completing the objective a little easier Iâ€™d say. Would kind of satisfy the goal in finding more companies who genuinely want to help a cause too Iâ€™d say.
