He told students not to see the global economy as an “us against them” struggle: if China does well, or Russia, it won't make America any less prosperous.

If only more people (and politicians) understood this. In the long run "Free" trade leaves everyone better off.

Dare,

With the constant quest for world power I don't think we will ever truly have "free" trade. (That would be too much like right)  All trade comes with a price.

I am able to appreciate this article more after reading the interview TMF conducted with his biographer, Alice Schroeder.

I am happy that he conducts these meetings with young students. This is a great way for him to give back, to set an example by showing that being a multi-gazillionaire does not doom a person into becoming a Montgomery Burns. I find the wealthy and powerful (the ones worth remembering) that use their money and time, by choice, to help enrich the culture and the lives of others are remarkable human beings.

How many nice billionaires are there? Perhaps Forbes should do a list 400 nicest rich people :).
