The letter focuses on a three-part strategy: 'Recognize, Reduce, and Redistribute'
The Gates have now made an annual tradition of publishing their development manifestos; they are in the form of letters that they write early in the calendar year. These letters not only contain their personal vision, but presumably, broadly guide the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. My reaction to the letters in 2014 and 2015 were that they reflected an inordinate focus on technology-driven solutions. By those standards, I was in for a surprise this year as I read the 2016 Gates Letter.
