No.15

CA: It seems to me, it’s actually really hard for some people to figure out even how to remotely spend that much money on something else. There are probably some billionaires in the room and certainly some successful people. I’m curious, can you make the pitch? What’s the pitch?

BG: Well, it’s the most fulfilling thing we’ve ever done, and you can’t take it with you, and if it’s not good for your kids, let’s get together and brainstorm about what we can be done. The world is a far better place because of the philanthropists of the past, and the U.S. tradition here, which is the strongest, is the envy of the world. And part of the reason I’m so optimistic is because I do think philanthropy is going to grow and take some of these things government’s not just good at working on and discovering and shine some light in the right direction.

CA: The world’s got this terrible inequality, growing inequality problem that seems structural. It does seem to me that if more of your peers took the approach that you two have made, it would make a dent both in that problem and certainly in the perception of that problem. Is that a fair comment?

BG: Oh yeah. If you take from the most wealthy and give to the least wealthy, it’s good. It tries to balance out, and that’s just.

MG: But you change systems. In the U.S., we’re trying to change the education system so it’s just for everybody and it works for all students. That, to me, really changes the inequality balance.

BG: That’s the most important. (Applause)

CA: Well, I really think that most people here and many millions around the world are just in awe of the trajectory your lives have taken and the spectacular degree to which you have shaped the future. Thank you so much for coming to TED and for sharing with us and for all you do.

BG: Thank you. MG: Thank you. (Applause)

BG: Thank you.
MG: Thank you very much.
BG: All right, good job. (Applause)
