Capitalism is this wonderful thing that motivates people, it causes wonderful inventions to be done. But in this area of diseases of the world at large, it’s really let us down.

4- We make the future sustainable when we invest in the poor, not when we insist on their suffering.

6- We’ve got to put a lot of money into changing behavior.
