Elon Musk asked for a $6B plan to end hunger. Here it is.

  • 31, multibillionaire Elon Musk tweeted, "If WFP can describe on this Twitter thread exactly how $6B will solve world hunger, I will sell Tesla stock right now and do it.
  • Now, the UN World Food Program has called his bluff.
  • UN World Food Program executive director David Beasley did respond to Musk's original tweet last month, clarifying that "$6B will not solve world hunger, but it WILL prevent geopolitical instability, mass migration and save 42 million people on the brink of starvation.
  • He also offered to meet with Musk in person to detail exactly how the money would be spent.
  • Unfortunately Musk doesn't seem to have taken up the offer, focusing instead on a 2015 report of child sexual abuse by UN peacekeepers, and casting aspersions on the World Food Program's spending.
