Jeff Bezos of Amazon is now worth an absurd $131 billion dollars. I guess his current plan is to.give a billion a year to his spaceflight startup Blue Origin. https://bgr.com/2018/05/02/jeff-bezos-worth-fortune-philanthropy-charities/ And of course operating the Washington Post at a loss.
But with what organizations like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are doing to make the world better he could do so much more. Building hospitals, decreasing child mortality, increasing access to vaccines, and helping create better agriculture.
Who knows how long Amazon stock prices will be so high. We do know there are people that can use help. And having tens of billions can make a huge difference. As could simply treating your workers better and paying them more.
We live in a time of great wealth and great poverty. Some of these fortunes can make for a better tomorrow. And the world could get better.
