The battle for customers waged between fast-casual and quick-service restaurants proved about as noncompetitive last year as Sunday's Super Bowl. Fast casual won. Again.
When an antiquated economic theory is refuted by data, we must go with the data, and also trust our instincts. What's your gut tell you about the potential impact of raising the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $10 per hour?
And it doesn't look so hot.
Community organizing is changing. It's more social media driven and younger. Immigration advocacy alone has brought a new sector of young leaders int...
LGBT activists are making it clear that American companies can no longer get away with tacitly supporting foreign regimes that are brutalizing LGBT people. The backlash against such companies is probably only just beginning and will last long after Sochi.
There is no greater rejection than self-rejection. It is haunting, persistent, and colors the world in shades of pastels that are not reality. Everything and everyone seems brighter than you when you are afraid of yourself.

It may be that necessity is the mother of invention, but surely that's not what spawned this meal-holder "condo" idea floated by McDonald's in New Zealand. This makes KFC's new "Go Cup" look like a shanty.
Try to squeeze a perfect amount onto a single fry? False.
Would a McDonald's burger disguised as a gourmet dish be like hiding an elephant in peacock feathers?
