I Would Rather Give My Billions To Elon Musk Than Charity

Google CEO Larry Page has an unusual idea about what should happen to his billions should he die.

Instead of giving it to a philanthropic organization, he'd rather hand over his cash to Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, SpaceX, and SolarCity.

In a conversation with Charlie Rose at a TED conference on Wednesday, Page said he wanted his money going to capitalists like Musk — those with big ideas for changing the world — according to a report at Wired.

He thinks Musk's vision for going to Mars "to back up humanity" is inspired. He said, "That’s a company, and that’s philanthropical."

Smart man. That way his money will do some good instead of making charity directors rich.

Anyways helping the poor is like pissing in the wind, might as well give it to something productive.

Sooner the better that happens for him and the ones that think like that. Elon should become part of an NASA animation, what could possibly go wrong in that land??
