Actually, now I'm going to rant, because I can't stand journalists.
Seriously, the guy is the one person aside from Elon Musk that does something useful with his money. The media, on the other hand, is going to cast him as some crazy guy because he doesn't plug his money back into hedge funds and ETFs so he can raise the price of Ford and Amalgamated Holdings Ltd.
This is what more investment should be doing, instead of pumping multiples through the roof and increasing asset prices. He is a national hero as far as I'm concerned. If only there were more people like him.
And then, at the end of the article, after we've characterized him as a loon, we discover - oh wow! - that the billionaire tech investor isn't a complete idiot. The idea is actually really necessary to elevating global life quality. GAH.
