Bill Gates in The Economist?
September 17, 2009 1:20 AM   Subscribe

Bill Gates wrote a letter to the editor that was published in The Economist within the past year or two. Can you track down what issue it was in?

I think he was discussing his work on malaria with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and it's absolutely vexing me that I cannot find it, even as a subscriber using their archive search options.

Any insight? (I'm pretty sure he signed as Chairman of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, so this was since he stepped down. And a straight up Letter, not a special report or The World piece or guest column.)

Response by poster: Sadly, no. There are several articles about Malaria and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, but this was an actual letter, published in the Letters section in response to earlier coverage...

Is this it? It wasn't published in The Economist, but the magazine does talk mention it here.

The letter is long, but it closes with:
