Fairness on trail

November 18, 2012

If you tell me that I can have this $20 and that $100, then I’ll take $120 happily.

If you tell me that I can have this $20 or that $100, then it’s not fair: that guy there gets more for walking less.  I hope it didn’t get institutionalized in the definition of products and sums (Conceptual Mathematics, page 302).  Why does it have to be or?

Full Disclosure: Thus concludes my fitting-reply to Harvard Conspiracy-heavy on deterring us from thinking about fairness (until I figure-out the ‘same abstract form’ submerged in Exercise 2 on page 66 of the textbook).
