sure Gates has donated a lot and established charities and such, but i have always wondered how sincere most of that is...anyone that knows corporations and finances realizes that there are so many incentives towards charitable contributions that donating money is practically necessary to protect wealth.
It's sincere with Gates because his wife is behind him doing it.
Anyway, I have good reason to believe this news article is drastically overestimating this amigo's wealth. In other words, they're putting a way more positive spin on it than is reasonable and are more or less lying (I say lying because I'm sure they know they're wrong). I won't go into all the details of why I feel this way, but let's just say I have a business degree and have a firm grasp on the amount of wealth of this man and Mr. Gates, too.
But anyway, that's all I got to say about it. Not a big deal...
