From the Wall Street Journal today:
In a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, the software tycoon plans to call for a "creative capitalism" that uses market forces to address poor-country needs that he feels are being ignored.
"We have to find a way to make the aspects of capitalism that serve wealthier people serve poorer people as well," Mr. Gates will tell world leaders at the forum, according to a copy of the speech seen by The Wall Street Journal.
Capitalism is by its nature creative. Ask a capitalist.
If Bill wants to put an adjective in front of "capitalism," then perhaps he should consider "universal" and challenge the attendees at Davos to help establish the institutions in poor countries that will make that adjective redundant as well. That way, the billions of people living in poverty in these areas will have access to the one economic system that can meaningfully improve their plight.
