He wants to see people like Musk change the world
Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk stands to gain some inheritence once Google CEO and co-founder Larry Page passes away.
Wednesday, Page told Charlie Rose that he wants his money to go to people that will change the world when he dies, such as Musk.
“You’re working because you want to change the world and make it better,” said Page. “If the company you work for is worthy of your time, why not your money as well?”
Musk isn't just the CEO of Tesla Motors. He is also the head of Solar City and SpaceX, and has ideas of taking people to Mars in the future. This idea particularly struck Page, where he said “that’s a company, and that’s philanthropical.”

Musk has certainly changed his respective industries. With Tesla, he introduced the all-electric and sporty Roadster as well as the all-electric Model S sedan. He has built Supercharger infrastructure to ease range anxiety, whether the driver is making a work commute or a cross-country road trip. Musk is even working on new battery technologies, opening his own battery plant somewhere in the Southwest U.S. (the exact state hasn't been chosen yet) and is
fighting the traditional system
of using auto dealers in favor of direct manufacturer-to-customer sales.
Solar City has created vast solar arrays to increase the amount of renewable energy collected in the country and preserve the increasingly-taxed grid, and SpaceX scored a a $1.6 billion contract with NASA that allows SpaceX to complete 12 supply
trips to the International Space Station
(ISS) and back. The rockets can also be reused, landing vertically rather than crashing into the ocean.
A Tesla spokesperson said Musk "is honored by Larry’s comments and very much admires what he has accomplished with Google."

Actually... if you read BG's stuff, he believes that improving health will humanely reduce population by encouraging people to have less children (like what's happening in Europe, Japan, etc.). In a roundabout way, that's why he got into "curing diseases" in the first place.

Japan yes, Europe no, because they still want their cheap labor by importing immigrants who believe in large families, the right to beat their wives, blasphemy laws and many other beliefs and primitive cultural attributes that most westerners have freed themselves from.
