I know of several wealthy people who are not as wise as Bill and Melinda: I'm thinking of Trump (who is crazy and greedy), I'm thinking of Warren Buffett (#2 in my opinion too alone to correctly judge so that he's not wise enough, even rather selfish tho' giving a bit of money)...

In my opinion, Bill and Melinda are astonishing!
Imagine they are clever enough to have decided not to transfert their money to their kids! In addition they bring up them to be able to understand life...

I don't think wealth is good for humans: only a few can take advantage of it, most want more and more, storing and hiding their fortune which is absolutely useless for them and humanity. In addition, many people become abnormal and crazy.

- the most worthy families are not the clevest guys in the world and ost are unable to develop humanity: their wealth is useless
- People have to have enough money to imagine progress and future, become efficient and avoid to struggle for life and waste their "power".
- Fortune and Growth (I mean fruist of development) have to be shared differently as cleverness is not concentrated in wealthy families but are rather spread throughout the world populations
- a more comfortable life would permit more progress for humanity.

Gérard it is true that money doen't bring happiness. It is important to have enough money to live but our treasure are all the links we have with people. This is what makes us happy. Very Happy
