Wow. What basis do you have for any of the assertions you make in the article? There are a bunch of doozies.
How 'bout we start with "We hear about billionaires like Bill Gates giving away half of their net-worth upon death." Uh, no. Actually Mr. Gates is actively involved in the Gates Foundation, and he's still very well alive and kicking. The Foundation is his primary vehicle for giving away his wealth. It's also very focussed on results-oriented giving.
