Musk will fight world hunger, but on one condition

Share

The richest man in the world announced that he was ready to help in the fight against world hunger. Elon Musk will donate the necessary amount, but on one condition.

It all started late last week when the director of the UN World Food Program, David Beasley, called on the richest people in the world to help. In an interview with CNN, Beasley said there are “42 million people in the world who will literally die of starvation” if they are not helped.

Beasley says 2% of Musk’s condition can solve the problem. He mentions Musk and Bezos as the two richest people in the world who can help.

The founder of Deep Instinct, Dr. Ellie David later announced that 2% of Musk’s wealth was about $ 6 billion. Musk replied that if the World Food Program publicly described on Twitter how this money would solve the problem of global hunger, “I will sell shares of Tesla immediately and do so.”

He wants the organization to provide “open source accounting” so that the public can keep track of how the money is used. Beasley replies that she can go to him “on the next flight” to explain the plan to him, as well as “throw me out if you don’t like what you hear.”

Beasley explains that $ 6 billion will not solve the problem once and for all, but “it will prevent global political instability, mass migration and save 42 million people on the brink of starvation.” However, Musk wants the plan to address these issues and the planned spending to be made public.
