Comments on: Steve Jobs and giving anonymously http://blogs.reuters.com/reuters-wealth/2011/10/10/steve-jobs-and-giving-anonymously/ Fri, 05 Dec 2014 11:27:18 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: veggiedude http://blogs.reuters.com/reuters-wealth/2011/10/10/steve-jobs-and-giving-anonymously/comment-page-1/#comment-8602 Thu, 20 Oct 2011 04:56:42 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/reuters-money/?p=20573#comment-8602 I think to refrain from eating animals is one of the most altruistic things we can do and it doesn’t take money, all it takes is heart and commitment. So why can’t more of us do so like Steve Jobs did?

Why would you give half of your profits when you are just builiding your company to a person like that?

It’s sources are among the philanthropic world’s second stringers at best.

What the Director of Development of the Population Council was unavailable? No professors from NYU Heyman Center around for a call?

My point is, those who know are not talking, and those who know least are spouting off about topics well above their pay grade. Only time will tell if Steve gave any money away. That’s why wealth correlates poorly with giving — some rich people are just not philanthropic and that is, as they say, what it is.

Theft and betrayal better were more inherent to Jobs’ character than any manner of philanthropy.
