Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft and still one of the richest men in the world despite donations of billions, believes that 'creative capitalism' is the solution to growing poverty and inequality. The core of his argument: the high potentials that companies want to have within the gates are no longer only interested in making money, but also want to do something useful with their lives. Gates believes that more and more multinationals will put their R&D departments to work making inventions for the poor.
Indeed Gates himself is living proof of that. Is Gates right, and will increasingly idealistic employees force their employers to become more social, or will growing inequality lead to a ruthless rat race?
