Rich to help out the poor? Get real…

NEW DELHI (By Alistair Scrutton and C.J. Kuncheria) – Two of the world’s richest men, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, will meet the cream of India’s rich on Thursday to tap the wealth of a new generation of billionaires for charity in the rapidly developing Asian giant after a similar visit to China.
The visit of two of the world’s most generous philanthropists has sparked a renewed debate about the willingness of India’s rich to part with their money to support the nation’s hundreds of millions below the poverty line.
Gates, the founder of Microsoft and the world’s second richest man, has set up a $37 billion foundation focused on health in developing countries, usually targeting common diseases with high mortality rates, such as malaria, polio and AIDS.
The 80-year-old Buffett, dubbed the “Oracle of Omaha” for his formidable investment decisions that have built up a $200 billion empire with Berkshire Hathaway Inc, has pledged to give 99 percent of his wealth to charitable causes.
Much of that money will go to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Two decades of economic boom have propelled India’s industrialists and software moguls to the top table of the world’s rich, with two in the top 10 of the Forbes list of the richest people this year.
Gates, arriving in the Indian capital after a visit to the poor northern state of Bihar, said while he had no “measurable outcome” in mind from the meeting, he hoped it would encourage India’s richest to emulate other philanthropists.
“It’s fair experience that as you get people together to talk about philanthropy, they will hear why other people have committed and agreed to what they’re doing. It’ll encourage them to do more,” Gates told a news conference ahead of his meeting with the Indian billionaires.
The Indian billionaires include software czar Azim Premji, who in 2010 donated $2 billion for education and social projects, and G.M. Rao, the chairman of the GMR group who last week pledged $340 million in charity.
Separately, Buffett will also call on Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Friday.
In a country where more than 450 million people live in poverty, around 50 billionaires account for 20 percent of India’s GDP. In 2010, there were six Indian industrialists on Forbes.com’s list of the world’s top 50 billionaires. With
that have come some fantastic displays of wealth, including a $1 billion, 27-storey private home built by Mukesh
Ambani of Reliance Industries in the country’s financial capital Mumbai. Bentleys now mix with bullock carts and rickshaws on the streets of Indian cities.
But India’s billionaires have not been as willing to loosen their purse strings as their American counterparts, according to a study by the consultancy Bain & Co said in 2010. Charitable giving in India probably totaled about $7.5 billion in 2009, according to the study by Bain & Co, equivalent to about 0.6 percent of the country’s GDP. That percentage is higher than Brazil’s 0.3 percent and rival China’s 0.1 percent, but it falls way short of the 2.2 percent in the United States, and 1.3 percent in Britain, the report said. “Our crorepatis (billionaires) have a poor record of giving,” India’s NDTV said on its website. “They say they will turn up at the event to hear the wit and wisdom of the Oracle of Omaha — but may send him back with empty pockets.”

If you’re updated about mainstream media being manipulated by the Illuminati, then there is clearly no proof that the billionaires of the US, like Bill Gates, is actually giving as much has the media claims he does. The common people have always been the victims of their lies. If billionaires of India are not ready to help the poor I doubt the rich of the west are. After all, money (and lots of it) cannot be easily given away, whether by China, India or the US. Besides, aren’t the international bankers all Illuminists? And Bill Gates wants to reduce the world’s population! Why should he care for the poor when he wants them dead anyway? The money belongs to them and they’d do anything (like create wars that kill innocent civilians; colonize nations to suck out their wealth etc) to get hold of it; and they don’t their enormous amount of wealth with anyone unless they are part of the Illuminati too. And now they’re concerned for the poor? It’s a cruel game.

Food prices at dangerous levels, says (Rothschild-controlled) World Bank

The World Bank says food prices are at “dangerous levels” and have pushed 44 million more people into poverty since last June.

According to the latest edition of its Food Price Watch, prices rose by 15% in the four months between October 2010 and January this year.
Food price inflation is felt disproportionately by the poor, who spend over half their income on food.
The Bank called on this week’s G20 meeting to address the problem.
The World Bank’s president, Robert Zoellick, said in a statement: “Global food prices are rising to dangerous levels and threaten tens of millions of poor people around the world.”
He also said that rising food prices were an aggravating factor of the unrest in the Middle East, although not its primary cause.
Rapid food price inflation in 2008 sparked riots in a number of countries. At that time, the World Bank estimated 125 million people were in extreme poverty.
The World Bank says prices are not quite back at those levels – just 3% below – although they are 27% higher than a year ago.
A separate report earlier this month from the UN’s Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) said that world food prices had hit a record high in January.
Finance ministers and central bankers from the G20 group of developed and developing nations are meeting later this week in Paris. (Excerpt from bbc.com)

For those of you who have taken a healthy interest in the Rothschild / Bilderburg / Rockefeller agendas, here’s something you can’t look away from: BBC declares that there is food shortage and people are dying of hunger; it’s a threat to the poor. Do these Illuminists care? NO!!!! They dont’ give a cent, a dime, a paise, etc. The World Bank is owned by them, they are the international bankers which monitor the prices and the rates! Big yay if they plan to hold the G20 meetings and pretend to do something about poverty when all they want is to rule this world with everybody subject to them. They killed millions during the WW1 & 2, the Gulf war, the Iraq war which they planned. And now they suddenly care about the millions dying of hunger? Yah right! It’s all in the game. It’s their game of bringing about the evil New World Order of the anti-christ!

” Our (America’s) government pays farmers not to grow food. Food in third world countries is stored in buildings and left to rot. What is going on here?” (‘Eliminate the Useless Eaters”, Population Reduction & New World Order) This was written about a decade back, and it’s all the more a reality now!)
