[efoods]Bill Gates, the world’s richest man, said on Monday the U.S. economy could take years to recover from recession and predicted taxes will have to rise to bring the federal budget into balance.

Speaking on ABC’s Good Morning America, Gates also warned against too much government intervention and urged President Barack Obama to focus policy on long-term issues such as education to combat the effects of the worst recession since the Great Depression.

“When you have a financial crisis like that, it’s years of digging out,” said Gates, who co-founded Microsoft Corp and remains its chairman.
