The public interest does not require public money.

Bill Gates, no matter what you may think of his corporation, is a great boon to humanity - and to the arguments that libertarianism is practical.

Gates has donated billions to research cures for and treat diseases which are not especially profitable for drug companies, like HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. Evidently, government isn't needed for science in the public interest to continue.

Good for Bill Gates!
Eli Lilly is another big drug company that puts profits over patients.

it's extremely telling that despite Warren Buffet's claims of how the estate tax should not be repealed, he gave his money to Bill Gates' private foundation rather than direclty to the IRS.
