Ok I'm putting the age old question out their. As we come to the end of the year 2011, what mechanisms could we put in place to make the world a

Normal / Natural distribution curves appear everywhere in nature. Suppose this was applied to net wealth as well as net income for every person on the

contribute as much, or they are lazy. It pegs the most powerful people in the country (decision makers, CEOs etc) to share the pain of rising costs of
I'm fairly certain, the normal distribution curve could be used to drive the human race forward. Though my only question to the ATS folks out there,
how would you decide who gets to be in the 3 sigma to 4 sigma bracket? What do we value the most? What are the key drivers (set of criteria) that we
should be looking at to determine who are the highest paid members of society?
2. Education of Women.
The education of women is apparently the most effective way to reduce / slow down overpopulation. Women can go on to further education, get a career,
