Don't Expect Much From Unregulated Regulators

Jack M. Guttentag | August 28, 2014 | Business
The seeds of this article were planted in my brain some 30 odd years ago, when I did a consulting project for HUD, for which they contracted to pay me $2500. Three months after delivery and acceptance of my report by HUD, I realized I had not yet been paid...

Looks Like The 'Burger King's' Subjects Are Royally Pissed Off

Richard (RJ) Eskow | August 28, 2014 | Politics
An informal boycott seems to have started already. If Burger King insists on picking a fight with the American people, the response may very well come in the words of one of its own slogans: Have it your way.

You Only Live Once, So Do It Warren Buffett's Way

John G. Taft | August 28, 2014 | Healthy Living
Buffett used his punch-card analogy in an investment context. It's consistent with his belief that really profitable investment decisions are few and far between. But I think the punch-card analogy applies equally well to life, and to the decisions that define and shape our lives.

The Horrible Awkwardness and Angst of Being a Beginner: In Aikido or at Anything

Susan Harrow | August 28, 2014 | Impact
It's not easy being bad at something. But it's how we all start. And sometimes the awkwardness and ineptitude doesn't dissipate for quite a while. Beginnings can be awkward, uncomfortable, frustrating and fearful.

Mauricio Estrella | August 28, 2014 | Business
Every time, in the heat of arguing, it's in our human nature to do our best to win. But if we're not focused on solving the problem, we're wasting time and energy that can be diverted into something more positive.

Obama: We'll Protect You Against Predatory Colleges. Students: Please Do

David Halperin | August 28, 2014 | College
The president has made clear that he understands the scam perpetrated by many for-profit colleges against our vets, against single mothers, against working-class young people of color -- deceptive recruiting, high prices, poor quality, weak job placement.

Time Warner/CNN: Running Scared

Reese Schonfeld | August 28, 2014 | Media
Bewkes and Martin seem to be following the traditional trail of MBAs -- cut costs, put lipstick on the pig, dress it up and sell it for as much money as you can get and let the buyer worry about the future.

College Savings 101: Financial Multi-Tasking

Patrick Kennedy | August 28, 2014 | College
The words "college life" and "savings" are typically not used in the same sentence today. However, for college students preparing to move onto campus this fall, finding ways to save money may very well be as important as their academic major.

Has the Consumer Finally Defeated the Worker?

Jacques Attali | August 28, 2014 | World
Our elected representatives would rather upset those who come back from the office or the factory than those returning from the supermarket. The person elected chooses to encourage the lowering of product prices because that appeals to the consumer, even though this decrease favors imports and hurts local workers. The elected official chooses to increase taxes on work and to lower taxes on consumption: more income tax and less value added tax.

1.5 Million Opportunities to Strengthen Your Business

Dakota Meyer | August 28, 2014 | Business
While I agree with many about the moral obligation our country has to take care of its veterans and support them as they reintegrate into society, good business is ultimately built on good strategy. And the business case for hiring veterans is a strong one.

Vicki Escarra - Opening Windows of Opportunity

Renata M. Black | August 28, 2014 | Impact
Knowing what it feels like to be really poor and not fit in drives me to try and help other people. I'm not arrogant enough to think that I know everything women in the developing world are dealing with, but some of the psychological things we go through are exactly the same.

New Technology Could End the Debate Over Pipeline Safety

James Stafford | August 28, 2014 | Business
Who could have ever imagined that North America would surpass Saudi Arabia as the world's largest producer of oil and natural gas liquids? A decade ago, that would have seemed laughable.

Leaders: Legal, Ethical or Right?

Dianna Booher | August 28, 2014 | Business
When people decide to disregard their moral compass as the official business handbook, they begin to make up the rules as they go. Anything can happen, and the situation frequently proves to be a source of conflict.

From Chelsea to Corona: Public Cost and Public Benefit in the New Public Park

Cassim Shepard | August 28, 2014 | New York
Former Mayor Bloomberg presided over an impressive and significant investment in public space, leveraging the frenzied pace of real estate development to subsidize new parks. Yet, somehow, the new open spaces built in the past decade - free and accessible to all - have come to symbolize, for some, just the opposite: elitism and the inequality of opportunity.

Pioneers for Change | August 28, 2014 | Business
The starting point for this is often posing the question "what is your family mission?" And I would challenge all families to think in this way and ask themselves the same question.
