There is so much room for people with good ideas to make change, and probably make some good money while they’re at it.

One problem is of course, if you can’t make money off it, not a lot of people want to build it. It’s a straight-up market failure problem. So healthcare and education becomes an issue of what service can you sell (not what problem needs solving, e.g. preventative health) and homelessness and poverty are simply hand waved away as “intractable”. Mostly, because these issues are solved with government power, not market power (by governments regulating markets for the good of all, by operating/changing the tax system fairly, and in the way their own budget expenditures are targeted, etc).
