Billionaire Bill Gates criticized capitalism saying that it causes fundraising efforts to go to trivial issues that bother rich people a opposed to global health epidemics that are devastating the poor.
The Microsoft founder was speaking at a conference about his latest philanthropic push to end malaria, saying that it gets slighted in terms of funding because the ones with the checkbooks are typically men in wealthy countries.
I can not speak for others but my impression is there are so many organizations wanting funding while claiming that there is not enough funding for their cause. Some of these I believe are opportunistic more than really in it to help.
I am reminded of an ad I listened to yesterday saying we need more research on cancer but do we?
