Sounds like Bill Gates. He still puts critics out of business. See for
"The chief of malaria for the World Health Organization has complained that the
growing dominance of malaria research by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
risks stifling a diversity of views among scientists and wiping out the world
health agencyâs policy-making function.
"In a memorandum, the malaria chief, Dr. Arata Kochi, complained to his boss,
Dr. Margaret Chan, the director general of the W.H.O., that the foundationâs
money, while crucial, could have âfar-reaching, largely unintended consequences.
"Many of the worldâs leading malaria scientists are now âlocked up in a âcartelâ
with their own research funding being linked to those of others within the
group,â Dr. Kochi wrote. Because âeach has a vested interest to safeguard the
work of the others,â he wrote, getting independent reviews of research proposals
âis becoming increasingly difficult.
"Also, he argued, the foundationâs determination to have its favored research
used to guide the health organizationâs recommendations âcould have implicitly
dangerous consequences on the policy-making process in world health.â

âGates has created a huge blood-buying operation that only cares
about money, not about people.â
