Since no one, poor or rich, is required to donate any of his earnings–it is to be appreciated and lauded when it happens. I felt the original commenter was displaying a lot of hate toward people who have more money than he does.
- Yes, and it appears the Gates Foundation is targeting areas where governments are particularly incompetent – health, technology and poverty – and making real improvements.
- I think they just favor right size government, if at all, the stereotypes are changing…trump has spent more taxpayer money than any Democrat, I am totally geared towards community good, i think only when the community has well-being do we truly live well enough to enjoy personal freedoms
- I’m with you Chris. Small government and no parameters on society (i.e. less taxes and regulations), ironically, will bring exactly what Locke-types (most conservatives) are most afraid of — a loss of freedoms.
I wish that sensibility showed up in our cost accounting. Corporations should pay for the impact they have on our environment. How about a carbon tax. When I take an American on a tour in Europe, that traveler contributed to climate change by flying to Europe and back.
I made $30 more per person than I should if we had honest cost accounting. I’d happily incur a $30 in my cost of goods sold to be carbon neutral in that respect. (Note, at RSE we have a self-imposed carbon tax to do exactly that. Last year we gave $1 million to ten organizations fighting climate change so our travelers flew essentially carbon free. You can read about that on our website.)
You don’t need a tax you can donate to your cause put your money to work. Al Gore buys carbon off sets he is also a hypocrite burns a lot fuel flying in his private jet and multiple houses but that’s okay because he buys carbon off sets. Liberal thinking people make no sense.
