What’s it like to have the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation moving into high gear, playing a prominent social, political, and even diplomatic role—as well as a philanthropic one—around the world? Is it unique and different from any foundation we’ve ever seen, or it it just a lot bigger and richer? And if Gates is unique, what are the implications for the field? Edward Skloot assesses the roles of this $37 billion mega-foundation and how it can help, or hurt, those who receive its largesse.
