Elon Musk , the richest man in the world, has indicated that he will only donate his money if the United Nations ( UN ) can prove that it can solve world hunger with it.

Musk responded to the statement of David Beasley, director of the UN World Food Program , who noted that the wealth of billionaires can help eradicate famine in the world.

According to Beasley, $ 6 billion can prevent 42 million people from dying from this.

If the World Food Program, using transparent and open accounting, “can describe in this Twitter thread exactly how 6 billion will solve world hunger, I will sell Tesla stock right now and do it,” Musk noted .


The $ 6 billion amount would be just a tiny fraction of Musk’s current net worth of $ 311 billion , and less than the 9.3 billion his wealth increased on Oct. 29 alone, according to the wealth index. from Bloomberg.

Musk has rarely sold Tesla shares, which are worth a record higher than $ 1,100.
