Of course the problem with your example is you don't pay taxes for giving anyone any amount of money.
You have it backwards. Don't find a solution when you don't know the problem. It's easier to figure out what type of problems you are interested in solving and get the necessary training to solve those types of problems then the other way around.
Remember if it doesn't happen on one of the coasts, it doesn't really matter to the mainstream media.
Your perception is much different than the reality of the situation. http://www.denverpost.com/perspective/ci_5982482
that most here have no idea how these "No Poaching" agreements actually function. The way these agreements work is two (or more) companies agree to not actively recruit the others employees. The employees are still free to move between the companies anytime there is a job opening. As someone who has worked an a "no poaching" company, this is much to do about nothing. As a side note it was interesting back in the late 90's to see Dell put up giant billboards across from Compaq Headquarters to steal their employees. These agreements are to stop that type of behavior.
Actually this is one area that Gates has influenced Buffett. Buffett has recently commented that He's starting to think he might be better off donating some now.
