"Chickens empower women" - Bill Gates

Fowl Advice From a Billionaire

  • "Buy a chicken."  This is the advice to cure poverty from the richest man in the world???  Pardon me if I expected just a bit more.
  • A-Holes like Gates sit on their billions in tax exempt "charity" trusts while handing out advice on chickens to the poor. At least Jimmy Carter personally built homes for the poor.

(The Sun)  -  In a blog post entitled “why I would raise chickens”, the tech mogul said he was cock-a-hoop about the barnyard animals.
“I’ve met many people in poor countries who raise chickens, and I have learned a lot about the ins and outs of owning these birds,” he wrote.
“It’s pretty clear to me that just about anyone who’s living in extreme poverty is better off if they have chickens.”
Gates is worth a whopping $76.6 billion (£52.9 billion) and earns an estimated $20 million (£13.8 million) every single day.
In his latest blog post, Bill decided to imagine what life would be like if he was living off just $2 a day – which is barely enough to buy a Pot Noodle here in the UK.
He said chickens were a “great investment” because one hen could potentially produce 40 chicks in a matter of months.
Poultry pickers could use this flock to feed their children or earn a relatively decent living.
Gates even claimed chickens could “empower women”.
“Because chickens are small and typically stay close to home, many cultures regard them as a woman’s animal, in contrast to larger livestock like goats or cows,” he added.
“Women who sell chickens are likely to reinvest the profits in their families.”
