I just read that former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair got paid $600,000 to give a speech in the Philippines.
Dear Whoever paid him that,
Give me $600,000 to visit you in the Philippines and give a speech and (less my expenses for getting there and back) I'll invest every dollar into the small businesses that exist in your country. And I'll give all of the speeches you want.
Then we can wait a year and see who has improves the lives of the Philippines more, Tony Blair with his no doubt wonderful, inspiring, and uplifting speech or my evil capitalistic investing.
Is it a deal?
