It's about time something like this happened. It amazes me on a daily basis how about 3-4% of the worlds population can sit there with 80% of its
wealth gathering interest in bank accounts and investment portfolios that do absolutely nothing for anyone but themselves.
There is enough wealth, technology and labour to execute any of humankinds immediate challenges; namely poverty and education, unfortunately there is
absolutely no desire to do so by those in authority over these decisions.
To those thinking this is some kind of intellectual theft, it is far from it. It is not a plan to launch a business model for the lucky recipient to
make a profit from. A plan for assistance to those in need mainly requires money. The ideas are there, everyone has a plan that could effectively help
many people, Google don't need to steal them from anyone, the key ingredient is money, and this they are providing.
If I had to come up with one plan it would probably involve a large-scale community farming program in impoverished countries such as in Africa, where
governments lack both the funds and knowledge to maintain a sustainable agricultural sector. I think stimulating sustainable economic growth as well
as providing basic amenities thereby would be the best thing to do with the money, that and community education programs. All non-governmental, of
