The Director of the UN’s World Food Programme (WFP), David Beasley tweeted on October 26 that emphasised the 36 billion dollar increase in Elon Musk’s net worth and how one-sixth of the increase could save about 42 million people suffering from famine.
The tweet was met by an assertive reply from Elon Musk, the world’s richest man. He said that he is willing to sell his Tesla stock and spends $6 billion to end world hunger.
“But it must be open source accounting, so the public sees precisely how the money is spent.”, read another one of Musk’s tweets.
However, a researcher answering to Dr. Eli David’s question said that this much amount was not enough to solve world hunger but “will prevent geopolitical instability, mass migration and save 42 million people on the brink of starvation.”
Beasley then tweeted to Musk assuring him that WFP has a “system in place for transparency and open source accounting,”. He further added that Musk’s team can review and work with WFP in order to be confident about this.
“With your help we can bring hope, build stability and change the future. Let’s talk: It isn’t as complicated as Falcon Heavy, but too much at stake to not at least have a conversation. I can be on the next flight to you. Throw me out if you don’t like what you hear!” added Beasley.
