Billionaire and former tech mogul Bill Gates predicts that there will be almost no poor countries left in the world by 2035.
Almost all nations will be either lower-middle income or wealthier, and most will have surpassed the 35 countries that are currently defined by the World Bank as low-income, Gates says in his annual letter for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

We’ll all be poor by then.
Gates, bring back jobs to America.
Or there will be a whole bunch of poor people, right here.
Sending jobs to China, is not growth.
well perhaps Billy Boy will give his billions away to all those third world countries living in poverty... oh but that won’t help since they have dictatorships that are the only rich.
The man never understood computers, always hired others to do his work, and now wants to believe that magical things happen if he says so. Obviously history and economics are not his strong suit
So what’s the ‘RATS’ plan to fit them all into this country by 2035? This joint is sure going to become crowded.
I suppose “poor” is a relative term, and as you say, since we’ll all be poor, as I totally concur, so in essence, no one will be poor.
The operative word here is ‘Almost” There will be one big one...USA!
Gates must be smoking a whole lot of MJ.
USING OUR TAX DOLLARS TO ENTITLE THOSE IN POOR COUNTRIES TO DO NOTHING BUT PUT OUT THIER HANDS
Bad government and poverty will be the great equalizer by then.
Bill Gates is your typical optimist in an evil world that is becoming more evil day by day. The Scriptures teach that evil men will wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. And so it is. The communists and Marxists and socialists have destroyed our once wonderful and thriving country blessed of the Lord Jesus and made it and their children into a cesspool of degradation and perversity and will collapse the nation. Gates is a simple fool, stupid is as stupid does is the whole left wing godless pagan monsters.
Let God be true and every man a liar in order that thy sayings may be true and thou mayest overcome.
Who is he that overcomes but he that believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
Gates is a poster boy for the Peter Principle which states that eventually, everyone rises to his level of incompetence.
Bill Gates gets to define what “poor” is....for everyone else?
Say what else you will about Bill Gates, but this one is just wrong. According to those that worked for him, he will drill you on your technology, getting deeper and deeper until you were talking about assembly language and machine code, and how it fit into the operating system he took control over (DOS). He knew that code down to the machine code level.
He'd also berate you and call you names if you couldn't keep up. He was horrible to work for. Yet, if you did, in the early years, you became a multi-multi-millionaire.
Good grief!--"The poor you will always have with you-(paraphrase).
Poor, dumb liberals. They think they can pass laws that can make everyone equal, as opposed to giving everyone equal opportunity to better themselves in their own ways.
That’s the plan it’s called spreading the wealth.

|Woo hoo!! And the first 27% is in!! Thank you all very much!!|
Bill should have never quit his day job.
Gates and everyone of his fellow Free Trader Communist Globalists wants to take al American wealth and redistribute it to the third and near third world. No secret about that...only a fool would dispute it is happening
The global elite want a nice “domesticated” populace for their bon vivant lifestyle. The idea there won’t be poverty is laughable. We’ll have indentured servants across the globe. Hooked on their benevolence and Welfare payments.
Some say they want cattle. The truth is they want horses and dogs. Domesticated animals to work for their benefit.
Did he release mosquitoes?
Then this same group of elites will declare us ALL first world and bloody rich.
Hey Bill, Jesus says you are a liar.
Mat 26:11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.
Yeah, and MS Vista is going to make a big comeback! Does Bill Gates often take rides on his rainbow-farting unicorn?
Inflation might let the worlds poor earn more than $2 a day but that doesn’t mean $2 will be worth squat All of Zimbabwe were millionaires for a while too.
They want to rid the earth of a large, large chunk of us.
Then, they want who is left and not servicing their technocratic lifestyles living in a Hunger Games environment. A sort of Soviet Union meets the Hunger Games. Scientists, robotics engineers, etc will still have a need.
Probably minus the actual hunger games but who knows they may evolve to that level in short time too.
Think I am crazy? Read John P. Holdren's book and papers. He's very clear what they think needs to happen.
Then ask yourself who the Science Czar currently is.
Gate is all on board the wealth transfer by the UN from the rich nations to the poor nation. Socialist world.
We have seen what happens when you have a permanent entitlement with welfare queens. How that leads to intergenerational poverty and dependence. Now the UN would make welfare queens of us all.
This ends badly.
Gates hopes to kill most of the third world off with his medical help to the poor.
If he's trying to mislead you about his real intent.
Oh, forgot about that... the inevitable leftward drift of "foundations" intended to assuage liberal guilt.
Feed the world, make us all equal...
What the heck do you do to get the dictators out of the way to spread that money?
First he must join Soros and the other billionaire globalist country club market manipulators into tuning America into one of those third world pits.
...the main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States...
Gates and his wife are already killing overseas.
Why doesn’t he donate his wealth?
Equality in poverty is the socialist end.
From what I’ve read, the whole global warming hoax was supposed to give the globalists the transfer of wealth tools they needed with carbon taxes and credits. The need to “save the Earth” was supposed to be the moral imperative that would cause industrial nations to go along with the whole thing.
Then nature just did whatever it wanted to do as normal, and the hoax has been exposed. However, the hoaxers just keep going as if nobody notices their pants are down around their knees.
“almost no poor...”
There’s his out. Can’t miss.
I notice few, if any addressed the point of his comments, which is that everyones boats are rising, and the poor people of today will be living at a much higher standard in the future.
We only have to look at the United States, and often even our own families, to see how that has come to pass. Gates is saying the same will happen in large parts of the world, not just here.
It is coming to pass because Gates quit his day job, put himself and his money at risk and created a computer revolution that changed the world.
It also is coming to pass because companies like Monsanto are willing to risk their capital to produce GMO seeds, seeds that even today, only 20 years down that road, are feeding tens of millions who would otherwise have starved to death. Detractors seldom, if ever, mention the immorality of not providing a means to those who want to feed themselves. They curse the darkness and curse those who are lighting candles.
These and many other modern technologies are changing the civilized world, and creating a better standard of living.
Except that some men who worked at Redmond said that it was a noisy whorehouse.
Our economy is depending more each year on a rising pile debt, as are other western culture economies. There’s not enough manufacturing on our own soil (disregarding U.S.”based” manufacturing on foreign soil) for sustainable revenues to support big government and government-connected businesses. Economic support for despotic, foreign regimes does no one any good.
Bloated, expensive code is costly to the whole economy and costs more than it benefits. Dirty deals for general surveillance against everyone are also a problem. Such code is also being replaced by open source efforts superior in ways that count.
Corporations making patented GMOs are anti-competition tyrants (see legislation attempts against small farms) and are setting the world up for a super-famine with their implied assumptions that they’ve protected crops against every possible future blight or weather condition.
Try microcode, with operands representing the processors 8- or 16-bit registers, implicit operands or indirect memory address references. Otherwise, your spiel has the whiff and terror of what could easily transpire to lesser-experienced or -talented employees in his presence.

Bill Gates supports gun control and several other pursuits of the left. Look it up.
The problem here is the word “poor” is being used without definition. Gates is using it more as “can get adequate nutrition/shelter/sanitation to survive indefinitely”, vs “anyone not in the top 13% income bracket is legally poor”. Much arguing about not the same issue.
When a guy’s got 50 billion dollars, he can live in a bubble of grandiose splendor and blissful isolation.
The problem is that the author of the article used the term 'poor'. If you actually read the article, Gates uses the phrase 'extreme poverty'
Living on $10/day is poor. Living on $1/day is extreme poverty
Gates is actually right. Most of the world is above extreme poverty and probably, tho not certainly, those residuals in Asia and Africa will rise out of extreme poverty in the next few decades.
So Gates wants to dispel the myths and these myths arise because those who live on a $1000/day, $100/day, or $75/day look down on those at the lowest incomes of $1/day and $10/day, $20/day and can't differentiate between them.
But the guy living on a $1/day can easily see how much better off he would be at $10/day, or $20/day, or $100/day.
sure thing ask the real techies in Silicon Valley who knew him when ( and yes I did)... not even close. He did understand marketing and how to create tools...not the same thing.
