Billionaires Address "Need"

A billionaires' summit was held in New York City earlier this month according to ABC News and the New York Post. Billionaire Americans met behind closed doors to address “need” according to Michael Bloomberg, one of the attendees.

Bill Gates and Warren Buffett organized the hush-hush huddle held in a Rockefeller University conference room on the Upper East Side with Mayor Bloomberg, George Soros, Oprah Winfrey, Eli Broad, Ted Turner, David Rockefeller Sr. and David Rockefeller Jr., among others.

In all, the attendees have donated a collective $70 billion since 1996, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy.

Bloomberg, worth an estimated $20 billion, yesterday declined to discuss specifics of the meeting. "I meet periodically with lots of my friends who are philanthropic," he said. "All my friends are philanthropic or they probably wouldn't be my friends . . ."
