RantCrush Top 5: June 16, 2016
Welcome to RantCrush Top 5, where we take you through today’s top five controversial stories in the world of law and policy. Who’s ranting and raving right now? Check it out below:
Bill Gates, billionaire and philanthropist, has made it his life’s mission to provide aid to impoverished countries. In his most recent efforts, he planned to donate 100,000 chickens to the country of Bolivia, as a part of an initiative called Coop Dreams.
But the response he received was less welcome than expected. The minister of land and rural development in Bolivia told The Financial Times: “[Bill Gates] does not know Bolivia’s reality to think we are living 500 years ago, in the middle of the jungle not knowing how to produce. Respectfully, he should stop talking about Bolivia, and once he knows more, apologize to us.” Ouch, need some ice water for that burn, Bill?
