Oh, yet another rich chinese die!
Go around the world, whenever there is a research breakthrough, you will notice the funding always associate with some “big name”. Beside funding on R&D, donation to education, medical are common for western country super rich. For example, do you know that, the land that United Nations Secretariat Building reside are donated by Rockefeller ? And Ford foundation, Carnegie Foundation etc.
In future, we will see more and more Asian wealthy people going up the rich and famous go up the forbes 100 list. And I can bet with you, less than 10 will be remember by people after 5 years they deceased, provided there is no “news factor” about their heir and inheritance.
It is rather funny that Chinese proverb say, “when the tiger die, it left over the skin, when a man die, they left over the name”. It rarely happens to many rich Chinese people, for the part of leaving a good name.
Compare to the Genting owner, Shaw Brother studio founder, Sir Run Run Shaw has donate more than 1 Billions dollars to date.
