I wasn’t kidding last year when I suggested that billionaire Michael Bloomberg invest $500 million in the acquisition, renovation and sale of 5,000 vacant houses in Baltimore.

Bloomberg is an original member of The Giving Pledge, the commitment he, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and other wealthy Americans made 10 years ago to give at least half of their fortunes to worthy causes.
