Fair share

…Speaking of billionaires, I remember this story that I heard about Andrew Carnegie, the steel baron:

“A man came to him and said, “Mr. Carnegie, you are the richest man in the world. Don’t you think you should share some of that?”
“Yes,” said Carnegie, surprising the man.

Carnegie then sent a note to his male secretary, who appeared in a few moments with a check for the caller in the amount of 32 cents. That number was derived by taking Carnegie’s wealth of hundreds of millions and dividing it by the population of the world.”

From “Speak Like Churchill, Stand Like Lincoln” by James C. Humes
