Bill and Melinda Gates keep saying the word is getting better and it's easy to look around and shrug off their optimism.




So I spent a day at their foundation, talking to the people working on some of the world's hairiest, most intractable problems.




And they are winning.



Bill and Melinda Gates keep insisting that — despite problems like climate change, political divisions and income disparity, the world is getting better for most people on Earth.
In late January, Bill Gates expertly trolled the 10-year challenge meme with a tweet that said: "It’s hard to beat this #10YearChallenge." The tweet included a graphic that showed how, in the last 10 years, extreme poverty, child mortality and youth illiteracy were all way down, while life expectancy was up.
The Gates' optimism is delightful. But it's easy to shrug it off as the rose-tinted perspective of a couple luxuriating in an abundance of gifts: intelligence, love, family, success and more money than King Midas.
