The individuals there make sure that every part of the organization is evaluating all of its people as uniformly as possible.

    We have very low turnover. I think we have lost less than ten people in seven years. We have over a hundred people.

    Our goal is to reward highly the top performers. So that is what we do.
    good for you, but please don't tell me that that is the way this country has run ... On merit? Please. But kudos to you if you run your business fairly.

    That help?
    No. Not at all. Mixed economies are socialist economies. It is just a pretty label to make people comfortable while their chains are being completed. You believe you are highly educated. How many mixed economies have ever recovered and became more free and less authoritarian?

    Every place I have every worked was based on merit.

    The goal of any organization is to reward and keep its top performers. Fairness based on merit is essential.

    why is it that for all of this country's history the vast majority of the most powerful, most lucrative jobs have been held by white men? Merit?

    I don't know why you would be so dismissive of what seems to me self-evident.

    That's easy Jack ... it's because it's not even evident, let alone self-evident ... Jack, for this country's history white men have occupied the vast majority (at times exclusively) of the best paying, highest prestige, most powerful jobs while making up less than half of the population ... Merit? What's the basis of this white male supremacy?

    It would seem so. Given that white men in this country held most of the jobs it seems reasonable.
