Here's a great idea how we could solve world poverty: let's tax Bono. He can clearly afford it - some of the tickets for the sold-out Australian leg of the U2 tour were selling for $200 - roughly ninety quid. Ninety quid for a gig. You can get to see a middle-range festival for that, and have money left over for chips.

Of course, U2 is free to charge whatever it chooses for its product. Just like Exxon and Royal Dutch Shell.
