Former President Bill Clinton convinced world and business leaders to commit more than $1.25 billion to address major global problems, ranging from poverty to clean energy.Clinton told participants including heads of state and business leaders to remember the impact their work can have on future generations, saying “we are so arrogant because we are obsessed with the present.” The three-day event, which coincided with a world summit at the United Nations, included a series of workshops on topics including religious conflict, poverty and the environment.
