Bill, Melinda Gates Discuss Philanthropy’s Impact On Equality, Health In Washington Post Interview

Washington Post: Bill and Melinda Gates: More philanthropy can work against inequality
“…In 2010, Bill Gates teamed up with his friend Warren Buffet to launch a campaign — called The Giving Pledge — to convince other super wealthy people around the world to give away at least 50 percent of their money to charity. There are now nearly 130 billionaires with a net worth of more than $700 billion who have signed the pledge. This year, the Gateses are rallying other global citizens — ordinary people — to get involved in charity work. … This interview, one in a series of conversations with tech figures who are shaking up philanthropy, has been edited for length and clarity…” (Cha, 4/3).
