Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Are there no limits to the honours and awards being placed on the young -- well, perhaps middle-aged -- shoulders of William Henry Gates III? Time Magazine and CBS News have decide that Gates is one of the titans or "most influential builders" of the century, but the company he keeps in the list may disappoint him. There's a certain gentleman, with considerable organising abilities, able to discipline the work force with no problems at all, and who always ensured that the bottom line was in good order. Mr Charles Luciano, known to his intimates as "Lucky", of course played a notable role in building the Mafia, developing a business model that was perhaps instructive to later titans. Then there is Walt Disney and Estee Lauder, the well-known cosmetologist. The list soon becomes even more bizarre, with the founder of failed airline Pan Am, and the eponymous planner of Levittown, Long Island. IBM-builder Thomas J Watson makes the list too. ®
