The battle for the top spot as the richest man in the world is ongoing, with Elon Musk edging out Jeff Bezos recently and topping over $300 billion this past week.

It’ll likely continue going back and forth between both of them as they continue chasing bigger and better things. It only makes sense that they are competing against each other rather than any one else since they are similar in many ways. I mean, who else is going to rival them?

Musk is one of my favorite people. I don’t think he’s the greatest guy in the world, but he’s smart, interesting, and honest and he certainly doesn’t mind helping people out.

Recently, the director of the UN’s World Food Program said that $6 billion from the billionaires could solve world hunger.

This is quite a statement and Elon Musk didn’t balk. He tweeted, “If WFP can describe on this Twitter thread exactly how $6B will solve world hunger, I will sell Tesla stock right now and do it.”

Then he tweeted, “But it must be open source accounting, so the public sees precisely how the money is spent.”

What a guy, right? If all it takes to solve world hunger is $6 billion, he’s up for it! This is why we need billionaires like him because our government isn’t going to fix anything. No government is.

I think this guy was going to try and point out the greed, but he got called on his bluff.

In response, David Beasley tweeted,

[email protected] Instead of tweets, allow me to show you. We can meet anywhere—Earth or space—but I suggest in the field where you can see @WFP’s people, processes and yes, technology, at work. I will bring the plan, and open books.

I don’t think the UN needs to be involved in this at all given Musk’s resources and abilities. He could probably do it much better without them. Maybe this is the next big step for Elon Musk?
