    As it's been reported here, this certainly seems like just a really Big Jerk move by Yahoo. How very Neo-Liberal of them!

    Thomas Picketty empirically demonstrates in his seminal work "Capital in the Twenty-First Century", the accelerating trend is to ensure that r>g (or "returns exceed growth").
