Elizabeth Warren challenges Bill Gates on 'wealth tax'

Elizabeth Warren challenges Bill Gates on 'wealth tax'”

Touching on a variety of topics, from Microsoft's antitrust case history to political ads on social media to Jeff Bezos in space, Gates was asked about Warren and her 2020 presidential aspirations. Turns out, she would. The day-long conference brought together Airbnb CEO Brain Chesky, Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi, Hillary Clinton, Kim Kardashian West, Kylie Jenner, Goop founder Gwyneth Paltrow, and others to discuss the intersection of business and policy at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. The government spent a decade trying to break up Microsoft over antitrust concerns. "But, when you say I should pay $100 billion, okay I'm staring to do a little math about what I have left over". "I didn't think Microsoft should be broken up", and he wouldn't "wish that on anyone". In the case of Elizabeth Warren the top wealth tax rate that she proposes is 6%.

"I'm always happy to meet with people, even if we have different views", Warren said.

Warren responded on Twitter Wednesday night.

They said in a letter: "The United States has moral, moral and economic responsibilities, and taxes our wealth more".

"A very attractive Swedish woman and her daughter dropped by and I ended up staying there quite late", he wrote in some of the messages. "There were people around him who were saying, hey, if you want to raise money for global health and get more philanthropy, he knows a lot of rich people", Gates said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal.

"There's no doubt that the antitrust lawsuit was bad for Microsoft, and we would have been more focused on creating the phone operating system and so instead of using Android today you would be using Windows Mobile", claimed Gates.

Microsoft as a company, he claimed got distracted from building a dominant mobile operating system, because of the disruptive antitrust probe from the US Justice Department in the late 90s and early 2000s.

"Oh we were so close!" "Or that she'd even be willing to sit down with somebody who has large amounts of money". "I do think if you tax too much, you do risk the capital formation" and innovation, as well as imperiling the U.S.

The entrepreneur-turned-philanthropist nixed any potential presidential aspirations.

"I hope the more professional candidate is an electable candidate", he added. "This is my current life's work, and it will take all of the years I have remaining to make big progress".
