Bill Gates – Our modern lifestyle is not a political creation

Share this quote:
Bill GatesOur modern lifestyle is not a political creation. Before 1700, everybody was poor as hell. Life was short and brutish. It wasn’t because we didn’t have good politicians; we had some really good politicians. But then we started inventing, electricity, steam engines, microprocessors, understanding genetics and medicine and things like that. Yes, stability and education are important. I’m not taking anything away from that, but innovation is the real driver of progress.
