Innovating to Improve the Human Condition with Bill and Melinda Gates | National Geographic

525 ratings | 25118 views
In 2015 at the United Nations, world leaders adopted 17 goals aimed at reducing poverty, inequality, and other global ills by 2030. Such goals have long been championed by philanthropists Bill and Melinda Gates. So in 2017 the Gates Foundation launched Goalkeepers, an initiative to spur action and track progress toward the goals. Its 2018 status report says there have been “mind-blowing improvements in the human condition”—but it also calls for more investment and innovation in fighting poverty lest progress against it stall. National Geographic Editor in Chief Susan Goldberg recently sat down with the Gateses for a rare joint interview on the new report, which was released to the public September 18. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe #NationalGeographic #BillGates #MelindaGates About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.

Bill and Melinda Gates started Goalkeepers to help shine a light on ways the world is improving. What are your thoughts on this initiative?

Thank you to Bill, Melinda to help poor countries but not Vietnam because the communist government will sell all hardware for themselves and not only that if smart people do not believe in communist or disagree with government they will be in jail or jobless. There are couple high officer went to Russia for degree, I do not know what they learned from russia, they are so stupid, they want to change education system by forcing first grade to use animation like square, round, triangle to replace A, B, C... alphabet I guess russia is also a dumber

So basically, children cause poverty, not the fact that they only earn enough money to properly support maybe one or two children
711Dcool Gaming (4 months ago)
V-marie Williams then only have enough children that you can afford.
V-marie Williams (5 months ago)
really contraception? How about equal distribution of wealth? How about no matter how many children a woman has, they are still able to live about the poverty line because wealth is distributed well?

People, listen to the answer to the question on what Melinda Gates would choose that they could fix. The question is asked at 3:00 min. She says contraceptives (anticonceptions, abortions) when the women would like to choose in their lives. Depopulation/ eugenics is that also called. This is because according to Bill Gates there are to many people on earth. 200 million women could get that

The billionaires know what is best for the poor savages. They are improving to the way of Bill and Melinda's thinking. Notice none of them are living at the Gates ultra high security residence.

The only billionaire who spends his money wisely and generously,not like those misanthropist billionaires who earn money only to double or quadruple that...

There are many many others that chose not to say anything about it because they don’t need approval of others.

Please fix the hiccup that occurs during Mrs. Gates comment (9:14) on the ineffective approach that is population control.

Indian Congress party is responsible for wide spread corruption, nepotism and lazy rule for 70 years and thus 20% of the population(1.3 billion) in India is still under poverty.

Good to hear them actually putting their wealth to use to try better the world. I never understood how somebody could live with themselves knowing they were holding onto so much money and had the ability to change so much of the world for the better and didn’t but sounds like they’re making an effort I mean if I was them I would like to think I would just calculate a comfortable about of money for the rest of my life and then take the other billions of dollars to make a real impact but it’s hard to know the full intricacies of their situation

Wonder what these two devils are doing playing the philanthropic perfect couple!! Bet they're looking for some unknown wealth!! I don't buy it!!

@Sophie Not exactly his fault if his business is incredibly profitable, is it? What would you have him do? Step down and have someone else far less generous take all the money instead? Close down Microsoft so he stops getting money? Bill Gates is worth approximately $97 billion. He's given almost $50 billion of that to various charities and research institutions that try to find solutions to real problems (like disease and agricultural research). And that's only the public ones. Much of what they do today is simply going around the world, looking for organizations with a worthy cause that they can fund. He's incredibly rich, but unlike other rich people like Trump (who is worth a mere $3 billion, if he even has that much, a fraction of what Gates has), he doesn't build golden palaces with it. He's using it for the common good. And one thing you may not know, Gates like a few other billionaires, won't be leaving their vast fortunes to their kids. Their kids will only be getting a tiny fraction of their money when they die. They've made a public pledge to use the majority of their money for charity.

+Angry Kittens I'm sure he does give a very large ammount of money away ... but is still raking in more than one person could ever need in a dozen lifetimes and keeps going. That's what I meant by its never enough
711Dcool Gaming (4 months ago)
No one asked you to buy it. I’m sure the people they’re helping don’t mind.
Angry Kittens (5 months ago)
Sophie  For people like Trump maybe. People like Gates give away a _very_ large part of their wealth. You just don't hear about it because they don't brag about it.
Sophie (5 months ago)
+Angry Kittens Sometimes it's never enough though
