Alibaba's billionaire founder Jack Ma on the Gates Pledge

From the WSJ (via Instapundit):

This idea of giving your money out was not created by Gates and Buffett. It was created by the Communist Party in the 1950s!"
while it's a bit sensationalist of a quote, I can't say I disagree with the thought. I've never been comfortable with the term "giving back". It's giving. Period. It's noble and good but Gates and Buffett will have done far more in building their wealth than giving it away.

Any time someone says "give back" my first thought is what did you steal?
