    A new Airbus A380 aircraft for Emirates is illuminated during a hand-over ceremony at the manufacturer's site in Finkenwerder, near Hamburg, in this file picture taken January 18, 2010. Airbus sales chief John Leahy is one of the most prolific salesmen in industrial history -- a relentless chaser who with irreverent wit and the discipline of a politician has amassed a backlog of plane orders worth half a trillion dollars. More than anyone, the American is responsible for lifting Europe's Airbus to the number one slot in global sales. Leahy represents a flavour of raw capitalism that many Europeans are not by instinct happy to embrace. In France, where Airbus is based, Leahy has little to do with the Parisian elite and is in turn largely ignored by them, which may explain why he has yet to receive such common Gallic honours as the Legion d'Honneur.

    Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro attends the presentation of his second autobiography book at Havana's University September 10, 2010. Fidel Castro said on Friday his recent comment that communist-led Cuba's economic model does not work was badly understood and that what he really meant was that capitalism does not work. Castro, speaking at the University of Havana, said his words had been misinterpreted by his interviewer, U.S. journalist Jeffrey Goldberg of the Atlantic Monthly magazine, who quoted a U.S. analyst saying they indicated Castro now supports a smaller state role in the island's Soviet-style economy.

    Hong Kong action star Jackie Chan sings during Taiwanese pop musician Jonathan Lee's concert in Hong Kong in this July 9, 2006 file photo. When Chan announced he would leave half his fortune to his charity that helps young people, the news created barely a ripple in his home city. Chan's estimated wealth of US$128 million hardly puts him in the billionaire league, but his largesse is typical in Hong Kong. The city may be a beacon of free-market capitalism with the highest number of Rolls-Royces per capita in the world but its residents are also among the world's most generous donors to charity, a trend that is accelerating.
