It is clear that the “Inflation Reduction Act” isn’t. I just read an article in Bloomberg News that Bill Gates had a large part in convincing Sen. Manchin (D-WV) to support what is now called the “Climate Bill.” One of the galling quotes (from Gates) is:
“The Inflation Reduction Act’s passage through Congress is nothing short of extraordinary.” He continued: “This $369 billion investment will spark innovation, drive job creation, and reduce energy prices and emissions. It sets a clear example of what serious climate action looks like.”
What is it about those who made a fortune as a young person that makes them think they are experts in areas completely separate from their original field? In addition to Bill Gates (Microsoft), there is Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), Jack Dorsey (Twitter), and Jeff Bezos (Amazon). Some like John Kerry – who married into money – seem to think their ‘success’ entitles them to control our lives.
At least Steve Jobs (Apple) and Elon Musk (Zip2, what became PayPal, bought by EBay) seem to stay out of my life.Published in
