I can't believe the greed of the world's wealthiest people.
When is enough money enough?
Some of these people have more money than they could spend in their lifetime, probably. And why aren't they spreading it around to the poor people, the homeless people, the starving people?
I despair when I think of all the suffering that could be alleviated.

Giving money to the poor won't make them less poor. The concept is disturbingly similar to what we are currently experiencing on a national level. The only way a person or a country can escape poverty is to produce more than they consume. If I give a million dollars to a person, in all likelyhood, I will get all that money back after they spend it. They will still be poor, and I will still be rich. Unless that money is invested in a means to produce something in excess of that million dollars, the poor person has no hope of escaping poverty.
