corps The $550 million figure has been cited so often that those not playing close attention could be forgiven for thinking that it’s the actual cost of the airplane Kind of like the bottom line on the sticker you see on the window of a new car But it’s not Like any bureaucracy dedicated to expansion the $550 million sum is the lowest figure the Air Force number can say with a straight face After repeatedly planting that $550 million flag in the minds of lawmakers and taxpayers Pentagon officials have sometimes acknowledged that the $550 million represents what is known inside the military as the "APUC" or average procurement unit cost Whats important about that figure isnt what it includes but what it leaves out First of all the $550 million price tag is based on buying between 80 and 100 of the bombers Driving the price per plane down to $550 million requires economies of scale that only come over such long production runs Early aircraft off the assembly line are very expensive as the radar-eluding B-2 "stealth" bomber made clear "Cost of Stealth Bombers Soars to $450 Million Each" the Washington Post reported breathlessly on its front page nearly 30 years ago in May 1988 Few believed at the time that a bomber could cost so much But that was for a planned buy of 132 planes The Air Force ended up buying only 21 The B-2’s ultimate price: $21 billion each Second the $550 million doesnt include the research and development needed to actually build the plane Without the R&D the plane would truly be stealthybecause it wouldnt exist Experts inside and outside the Pentagon estimate the new bombers development will add between $20 billion and $25 billion to the Pentagon’s projected $55 billion procurement price tag for 100 planes Third the $550 million price is based on the value of a 2010 dollar That’s 12 years before the first pair of bombers is slated to be delivered Accounting for inflation since has already driven the cost per plane close to $600 million and that number will keep rising in the future Delays in the planes production schedule will push it even higher Finally the $550 million estimate doesnt include anything for the all-but-certain cost overruns a weapons program like this will experience No one can say how much unanticipated costs will add to the bombers ultimate price but one can declare with certainty that it wont be zero Todd Harrison of the independent Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments think tank estimates the bomber program’s true costassuming 100 planes and no cost overrunsat $90 billion That’s $900 million a copy 64% higher than the Air Forces official $550 million figure "I actually think it’s very important that we buy the bomber" Harrison says "I just think we should acknowledge what it is likely to cost" He also thinks there will be cost overruns and that fewer than 100 will be bought That’ll drive the price per plane into the B-2s billion-dollar stratosphere Harrison isn’t the only one with doubts judging from what some Air Force officials have said while describing the new bomber’s advertised price Eric Fanning the Air Forces #2 civilian has called the $550 million figure "a pretty firm chalk line" Chief Air Force weapons buyer William LaPlante describes it a "marker in the sand" Whatever It’s obvious that the Air Force’s $550 million estimate isn’t carved in

was a foreign correspondent and columnist for The New York Times from 2005 to 2016 He is an Aspen Institute fellow an on-air political analyst for MSNBC and a former McKinsey analyst He lives in Brooklyn New York "Wheres the good in the world and how can we spread it" This was the question anchoring the approach that Jeff Bezos the worlds richest man laid out last week in announcing his and his wifes entrance into mega-philanthropy: a $2 billion gift to address homelessness and education The Bezoses want to fund capable organizations serving the homeless on the ground and to build a network of private full-scholarship Montessori-like schools for poor children who will supposedly be treated like customers are at Amazon where the Bezoses amassed their $100 billion-plus fortune As soon as I saw that question in their announcement I knew that yet another highly original daring magnate had succumbed to the clichés and tragic limitations of American billionaire giving The question about spreading what is good reeked of an approach borrowed from the business world where things are pilot-tested and scaled That approach can be worrisome when applied to social problems It is generous to want to grow whats good But that smiley-faced can-do focus-on-the-bright-side entrepreneurial solutionist orientation is often accompanied by a willful blindness toward systems root causes and the distribution of power Many of Americas most urgent social problems are not the result of good spreading too slowly but rather of harms being perpetrated: employers exploiting workers to fatten their bottom lines; plutocrats using their political clout to secure tax policies that benefit them at most peoples expense; the affluent clinging to zoning and education policies that hoard opportunity rather than spread it Many Americans on powers bad side dont need the winners to scale up good works They need the winners to stop standing on their necks Five years ago that might have been a radical claim But the Bezos gift comes at a moment of backlash against big tech and of reckoning within the philanthropic complex These phenomena are themselves symptoms of a wider questioning of the role of Americas winners in an age of extreme inequality democratic decay and innovation that fails to deliver broadly shared progress For a winner wishing to do good this is a moment to ask oneself hard questions before just writing checks and rolling up sleeves Is the solution to our winners-take-all economy lavish giving by the winners or reforms that would force winners to take less Is it better to run a business pitilessly paying low wages and avoiding taxes and after gaining wealth giving back or better to pay workers and taxes fulsomely and perhaps end up with less to give away Are generous billionaires a crucial stopgap when government isnt working right or are they a reason why government isnt working right Are the skills and values and spreadsheet prowess that built our lopsided new economy the best instruments for guiding the search for a fairer one Do we need more wealthy people working to change the world or working to change themselves It is important for super-winners like Bezos to ask these questions because ours has been an age of not just elite generosity but also elite predation with the benefits of the future monopolized by the few And when the winners set out to give and help and make change in ways that emphasize spreading what is good they often ignore their own complicity in the problems they seek to solve Which is why Id say to elite givers with apologies to Jack Kennedy: Ask not what you can do for your country Ask what youve done to your country Consider the issue of homelessness in Bezoss own backyard of Seattle While it is laudable to support organizations providing urgent relief the issue there as elsewhere has root causes One of them is the desire of many affluent Seattleites to keep their neighborhoods zoned for single-family homes Here the spreading-good approach isnt enough for the problem is some people standing in the way of others having a decent life the obstructers including one presumes the kind of people who work at Amazon Thats not a fix that needs scaling; its a fight that needs picking and it may require a certain amount of self-interrogation There is also the question of how much money the local city government has to solve the homelessness problem through legitimate tools of state rather than through the more feudal dynamic of elite charity And again spreading whats good is easy but looking at oneself is harder When earlier this year the Seattle City Council voted unanimously to raise taxes on large employers in order to raise $50 million for homeless services and affordable housing Amazon joined with the local business community to lobby for the repeal of the so-called "head tax" of $275 per employee And the business lobby did succeed in getting its repeal Now Amazon is inviting Americas cities to bid on hosting its second headquarters including by offering the company enormous tax breaks That is asking for money that those cities could instead be spending on the disadvantaged Perhaps most pertinently there is the issue of how Amazon like many employers in America today pays and treats its workers A recent investigation by The Guardian "revealed numerous cases of Amazon workers suffering from workplace accidents or injuries in its gigantic warehouse system and being treated in ways that leave them homeless unable to work or bereft of income" The companys low wages ultra-fast pace and reliance on seasonal workers as chronicled in Jessica Bruders book Nomadland contribute to a rising precariousness in the lives of working-class Americans that often manifests in homelessness Spreading whats good is kind But Bezos and Amazon perhaps have even more influence over the issue by changing their own ways and persuading others like them to follow suit If the winners of our age were to ask themselves these hard questions and begin curbing their complicity in the problems they seek to solve they would end up with less money to give away More of that money would go to wages benefits and taxes More of it would go to preventing ailments so that we need not palliate them later And yet for now we live in the world we live in Bezos and his wife have that money and they want nobly to give some of it away to help people How could they spend the next $100 billion-plus in ways that are more imaginative and transformative than the early method they announced As an icon in corporate America who commands the respect of boardrooms Bezos could support those working to make American capitalism responsive to all who are impacted by a business not just shareholders For years B Corporations have offered a voluntary way of certifying ones company as socially responsible and respectful of environmental social and worker needs Republicans and Democrats alike have supported the passage of state laws enshrining the benefit-corporation approach What remains to be done is getting the remaining more than 99 percent of companies to serve stakeholders through a mix of suasion and new laws Bezos could play an important role in solving one problem at the root of so many problems: getting companies to work not only for investors but also their communities On the issue of education Bezos could lend his support to some of the lawsuits winding their way through American courts challenging the constitutionality and legality of funding public schools unequally by local property taxes That would be taking on an issue at the root And it would be working through the machinery of law rather than creating unaccountable islands of billionaire-funded schools and programs It wouldnt merely be "giving back" but forcing winners to give something up because a victory on that issue could lead to his fellow elites surrendering to a national pool the educational funding they now ring-fence for themselves It could diminish home values in rich neighborhoods Such work by Bezos would still raise questions about how much power billionaires should have in shaping public life but it could be structured to put local organizations at the forefront and be that rare philanthropy that limits ones own power Imagine if Bezos applied himself to the very problem on which his fiercest critics attack him: the treatment of workers Unions and collective bargaining have been bludgeoned in recent decades by a war waged by the political right and by a new economy that has made the traditional union offering less relevant to many workers situations Collective bargaining needs to be reinvented for the age of Uber the gig economy and yes Amazon We need to restore to workers the leverage to fight for wages that would restore the viability of the American Dream; for insurance against the vicissitudes of volatile pay and hours; and for health safety and dignity on the job no matter how many sub-contractors of sub-contractors are hired to give a company deniability What if Bezos clear-eyed about his record and perhaps his regrets backed this work not by creating his own top-down programs but by donating money no strings attached to outfits like the Workers Lab in Oakland and the National Domestic Workers Alliance in Chicago that are building power for workers Like so many who did well and now wish to do good the Bezoses have their heart in the right place But their approach could benefit from an infusion of the audacity and self-interrogation that it took to build Amazon When he was building it Bezos never seemed to accept the outside worlds definition of the possible If he can bring that spirit to philanthropy he can abandon the familiar path of giving back in ways that sustain the very problems the giver takes on He could go down in history as an unlikely reformer This post has been modified Contact us at

never forget: being tied up blindfolded and groped begging for my life and begging for someone not to rape me In these moments Ive thought so much about all the women I photographed over the years and how unbelievably strong they were That was such a source of strength because I thought that if they could get through it when theyve gone through so much worse [I could get through it too]" After her kidnapping Addario developed a more comprehensive understanding of the people she had been covering all these years Similarly she says becoming a mother was also a defining moment in her life as a photographer "When I became a mother I realized so much more about the mothers Ive photographed and that love that is inexplicable for someone that doesnt have a child" But Addario was ambivalent about becoming a mother she tells TIME "I just thought that my life was going to end and I would never be able to photograph again I couldnt figure it out because I didnt have any role models I didnt know a single woman conflict photographer who had children" This lack of female role models which has constantly plagued the male-dominated world of photojournalism is best exemplified in the comments Addario has received over the years from readers "Everyone is having a field day judging what a horrible woman I am what a bad mother I am" she says "I find it fascinating that anyone feel like they have the right to tell me how to live my life" "All of these people" she adds "seem to forget that the places Im photographing are rife with women and mothers Why are they not up in arms about those women and how they have to live I think its very easy to judge" Before writing this book Addario knew shed become once again the target of such commentary "I knew every single person would come out of the woods and feel they have a right to judge a pregnant woman a mother" she says "But where are all the people screaming at all the men who leave their pregnant wives at home and go off to a war zone Why is there no uproar about that" And while Addario hopes her book will foster a dialogue for her the most important goal was to be honest and open about her life and her struggles "Sometimes Ive made mistakes" she says "and sometimes I havent but Ive always learned something and thats what I want to teach my son" Lynsey Addario is a photojournalist represented by Getty Images Reportage Her

for his sick son61-year-old Barry Stokes was 20 stone and told by doctors that he was too heavy to be an organ donor for his son 32-year-old Alan So he got stuck in at the gym trained hard and ate well and is now just 12 stone This means that he is now able to donate his kidney to Alan who has had a load of chemotherapy treatments that have damaged his kidneys to the point where a transplant is requiredBarry before Credit: SWNS Alan suffered from a rare form of cancer during his teenage years Barry from Lostock Hall near Preston said: "I was classed as obese off the scale in terms of my height and body size "We were told that the best matches would be family members and preferably the father "The doctor said even if I was compatible they wouldnt take my kidney because of my weight "Now Im ready and waiting If something had happened and I couldnt help I couldnt have lived with that" When Alan was just a teenager he was told that he may only have months to live – this led to the chemotherapy treatments However the lasting effects on his kidneys have been serious Luckily Alan is now getting better and is studying towards a doctorate in Artificial Intelligence at the University of ManchesterBarry after Credit: SWNS However as part of his treatment he still needs to have chemo which will mean that in future he is likely to need a transplant Barry immediately stepped forward to be a donor but was told that his weight simply wouldnt allow it This meant that he took on the challenge of losing the massive amount of weight and hired a personal trainer to help him on his mission He continued: "I used to be 12 stone but put on weight gradually over a long period of time through comfort eating because of stress "It got to the stage where I was out of breath walking up the stairs "Because of the condition I was in I was putting myself at risk of diabetes for example that would have meant more care of a number of years "Both my wife and my daughter bought into it
