Rich guys worry about fairness too, or do they?
It is nice to see that France, who may soon be leaving the family business, has discovered an interest in competition and fairness. His family, after all, owns Nascar, the Motor Racing Network (the radio network that broadcasts all Nascar races) and Americrown (the catering company that sells food at most Nascar tracks); it also owns a share of Action Performance (the dominant motor car memorabilia company) and owns a controlling interest in the publicly traded International Speedway Corporation.
Read the whole thing. (Hat tip to Rich Hart)

"That's not fair..."

Learning a language can be important
Sanyal’s thesis is interesting. But before we anticipate that change, it is
necessary to address an important differentiator that has already emerged in the
job market today. It is the earning difference between those who are conversant
with the English language and those who aren’t.
Salary differences between equally qualified (non-professional/technical) candidates can be as high as 400 to 500 per cent. In fact, the more fancied jobs in airlines, hotels, media, banks and financial services only to those who know English, the rest are forced into less fancied assignments.
