Jeff Bezos Foundation "Day One"
"We will proceed from the same principles that led Amazon to success. The most important of them will be a genuine, strong obsession with the client. The client is a child »
Jeff Bezos and his wife Mackenzie.
September 13 Bezos tweeted , for what charitable purposes, he is ready to allocate 2 billion dollars. A year earlier he asked opinions from his subscribers, in which area of philanthropy to focus his attention . Bezos chose education for low-income children. But some media accuse Jeff of hypocrisy and greed.
Day One is the principle of Bezos, which amounts to the fact that there must always be a "first day" in life and business, because "day two" is stagnation, followed by decay and death.
Let's read what Bezos said and discuss in the comments, whether he is a good fellow or a "hypocritical greedy".

Community comments Philtech Initiative
Bezos produced two revolutions:
in online retail,
in the cloud infrastructure.
I think it makes no sense to go deep. He is not a casual man. Given that both revolutions were directly related to technology, there is a high probability that problems will be solved with technology.
2 billion - this is still a very serious amount. Organizations that deal with them - about a hundred (in the US). Even if you subtract overheads, it's still very serious for one organization. It is likely that the volume is connected not just with the distribution of money for soup, but for technological solutions.

Bezos still seems more to me[супер-]an effective manager, than a man of the idea of Mankind. If so (I hope not), then such attempts, which I saw, did not lead to good in the end. If he really dealt with the humanitarian part of the question, then there can be a very good result.
Reacting to the saying " We will create an organization that will directly manage these pre-school institutions ".
For me, a qualitative criterion will be the spread of its solution beyond the scope of its influence. That is, if he creates what others voluntarily and on their own will sustainably support further.
The quantitative criterion will be a decrease in the number of those who want to study in his schools, because "in low-income communities" there will be less of these low incomes, that is, we would see work with the causes of the existence and appearance of such places.
I believe in education as an instrument for eradicating poverty and many other big problems. But not through the construction of schools for the poor. This area is waiting for a fundamentally new solution, in which everyone can learn on a par with everyone.
