Yes, absolutely, it teaches his children to be fiscally responsible.
You fell for that one, hook line and sinker.
Skep is looking for one of his cake icing analogy moments. You just fell for the old "There is one infinitely rich God, and he refuses to give his entire infinite wealth to his 3 children, before he dies, analogy"
Skep, as far as I'm aware, God is not planning to give his entire wealth to me, because he is not planning to (a) die, (b) explode my brain. And (c) it would be unfair to give it all to me, if starving Africans needed equiproportions of it.
Skep, most parents do give their wealth to their children, because they are poor without it. In Gate's case, his spoiled brats will most likely be filthy rich before he dies.
I'll grant you that if Bill Gates was infinitely rich, then he could not give his wealth away to all of us, without it inflating the currency.
EDIT, and (d) most children have actually met their parents, and been cared for, by their parents, for the first 20 years or so, of their life.
