On GPS this Sunday: Bill Gates and Al Gore

"Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN

On GPS this week: Despite wars, economic crises, and freak weather events, we should still be positive about the progress the world is making, argues Bill Gates in a wide-ranging interview on global disease, education, technology and more.

“[I]nnovation has been underestimated today more than any time in history,” says Gates. “I mean, we had the Internet bubble, where it was actually briefly overestimated.  That was kind of uncomfortable, I think. But it's strange to be in such a funk because people look at political roadblocks and some of them, the way these numbers measure things, they aren’t getting a sense of the progress in the rich world and in the developing world.”

Then, Fareed speaks with the only man to win an Oscar, a Grammy, an Emmy, and a Nobel Prize: Al Gore. The former U.S. vice president talks gun control, U.S. politics and climate change.

And in What in the World: Why a major African country found itself with only $217 in its government bank account.

    The tragedy is that neither Bill Gates nor Gore have a clue about society and what is needed to improve our lives. They only care about making more money for themselves. They both live in a Globalist bubble, insulated from the unemployed, from reality of poverty in this country, from lack of jobs for most young poeople, from masses of overeducated individuals with no future . They helped to export jobs to China and brought many on visas to lower the salaries of many. They are the last to offer ideas that could help this country. If things will get bad here , they will move to China.

    Your intro was nothing more than brown nosing and full of hype.
    Maybe Gore will hire you to carry the solar panels to his roof and Gates may hire you to bid at auctions for valuable artifacts that he likes to own with his billions.
    But you will not be allowed to bid on the Mona Lisa for sure.
    You are the verbal drone for CNN more dangerous than the remote drones.

    gates only talks about his vaccines and that general blather.He cannot talk about the immense damage that the corporations have inflicted on the public with their reckless tinkering with money.
