Bill Gates, 2011 Nobel Peace Prize Winner?

Tuesday, June 20th, 2006

Global Health Programs $5.8 billion dollars, Education $2.6 billion dollars.
Imagine the huge impact of this money; Not just grants to spend on basic life support, but money being used for fundamental research. What if an AIDS Vaccine comes out of one of the labs using the grants. The education grants also go a long way in improving the literacy ratio. What if a research comes out in 5 years that a country’s literacy rate went up as a result of the grants.
Why 2011? 3 years after Gates’ transition from Microsoft in 2008 and 5 years from now, Gates Foundation will have enought time to see it’s philanthropy bring results.
I’m not the first one to think about this, David Coursey originally enivisioned this in a 2001 article. David Coursey envisions further that someday a “Gates Prize” will be awarded to leading humanitatians of the world.
