Microsoft was once public enemy number one according to many of the technical people this blogger knows. It may have lost that title recently as it has become fashionable to dislike Apple, Google, banks, oil companies, lawyers, etc. That most people can agree on, though, is that since stepping back from his position at Microsoft Bill Gates has been very good with his money.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation seems to be very switched on when it comes to investment and determined to do the right thing. They have a suitably global view of what the “right thing” seems to be and to an outsider appear to be relatively free from the effects of lobbying from some of the more extreme political views in the States.
This video animates Bill Gates’ presentation at the G20. He outlines the need for smart investment in countries that need help in order to encourage global economic growth. Help others to help yourself.

Do you have any views of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and their tactics? Is my assessment above incorrect?
