[Snip ... lot's of money to different causes..]

This is what I don't understand. Why does anybody who runs a VERY succesfull
business think that he helps the world better by taking money away from what
he's doing well and giving them away ??

Wouldn't the money make society as a whole richer by being used in business

To me it seems like some sort of catholic salvation. "Please burn ten
candles mr Gates... no make that $10 Billion instead"
