How Long Will ‘This Economy’ Last?

I was watching an interview on CBS This Morning the other day about the next chapter this whole Lean In business (Spoiler Alert: apparently everyone’s going to ‘lean in together’ now – I’d better stretch first). What actually got my...

The Real Tragedy of the RadioShack Bankruptcy

I bought this radio at RadioShack today.  It’s am/fm, single speaker, no headphone jack and with a pull out antenna.  What was left of the store, now famously in the death throes of bankruptcy, was being run by a guy I’d never seen before – all of the regular...
