Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has a problem: He can’t seem to stop giving Johns Hopkins money. By 2013, Bloomberg had already given or promised more than $1 billion (yes, billion with a “b”) to his alma mater… and he hasn’t slowed down.
This month alone, Hopkins announced that Bloomberg is providing initial funding for a new international policy institute named after Bloomberg’s old pal (and alleged war criminal) Henry Kissinger, and the Center for Government Excellence, which “aims to assist more than 100 U.S. cities in creating data infrastructures to transform the way their governments operate,” according to the Hopkins Hub. Bloomberg ponied up $42 million for the Center for Government Excellence; the university has not disclosed how much he contributed to the Kissinger Center.
