Michael Milken

Chairman, Milken Institute | October 08, 2014
Milken shared the three ways to build human capital: education, immigration, and health.

The conversation Milken had with Economic Club President David M. Rubenstein focused primarily on Milken’s philanthropic efforts, particularly in the health care arena. President Rubenstein credited Mr. Milken with being the “largest single personal investor in the education space in the United States”, revolutionizing the treatment of prostate cancer, being one of the largest backers of cancer research and “one of the original 40 signers of the Giving Pledge, developed by Warren Buffett and Bill Gates.” In Washington, D.C., President Rubenstein noted, the George Washington School of Public Health is now named the Milken Institute School of Public Health because of Mr. Milken’s generous contributions and support.
