How best to spend $60 billion?

This page in:

In this weekend’s Washington Post Bill Easterly generously offered Bill Gates some financial advice on how to spend his Foundation’s money. To highlight one:

Money plus technology is 5 percent of the solution; the other 95 percent is delivery and implementation. By all means, invest in developing those new vaccines. But more imagination is desperately needed in creating incentives for the delivery of such products to the poor.

The Boston Globe’s Drake Bennett agrees with Easterly that one of the main challenges for Gates will be knowing if his ‘customers’ are satisfied (ht: Jessica Gottlieb). But what should you do if you only have $1 to spend?
