What evidence do you have that Goldman owns or exerts any influence over the US government? This kind of wild, un-sourced speculation is so rampant and accepted on /. that virtually any comment about corporate conspiracy gets at least a +1, Informative.

Funny, in Scandinavia when you apply for a job (at least at university), each applicant gets a list of every applicant, their names, ages, sexes and qualifications.

Really? So exactly why does the person's name (which may indicate race and religion) and sex need to be included? I don't, on principle, think it's wrong to see the other applicants' resumes, but why should name and sex be included? What possible good could come of this? I can see much harm and no good.

BTW, as a guy who got a high level IT position at 18 years old without college, I don't think age is necessarily an indicator of competence, but I'm willing to concede that one could make a case for it.
