    The idea of wealthy people giving a great deal of money to charity is peculiarly American (originated with Carnegie et al. in late 19th century). Outside the US it is almost unknown. Hence no surprise about C. Slim, who is from Mexico. Note also that the Gates/Buffett appeal has had little success outside the US.
