How Firms can Reap the Rewards of Innovation
These days almost every company worth its balance sheet insists that it invests in "innovation." But does it make or lose money on these investments? That is the question that James Andrew and Harold Sirkin tackle in their new book titled, Payback: Reaping the Rewards of Innovation. According to the authors, who are senior vice presidents and directors of The Boston Consulting Group, a new idea is just an invention -- and not a true innovation -- unless it generates financial returns.

Looking for a Company to Run? Search Funds Could Be the Answer
For those entrepreneurs who want to run a company but prefer to skip the start-up stage, search funds offer a possible alternative. A specialized form of private equity first launched in the mid-1980s, search funds are becoming increasingly popular -- and their supporters claim they can offer investors attractive returns and business owners a compelling exit strategy.

The Son Also Rises: Donald Trump, Jr., on Real Estate Opportunities in Emerging Markets
Back in the heady days of the real estate boom, property prices in New York City soared along with those in the rest of the U.S. When the subprime mortgage crisis hit and prices collapsed, the city's market held out longer than others -- for two reasons.

Where will the New York market be in 2009? Where are the mos

FCC's Cable TV Ruling: Will the Competitive Landscape Change?
For cable TV companies in the U.S., August 28 was a day to celebrate. Ending several years of regulatory battles, a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals came down in favor of Philadelphia-based Comcast, which sought to overturn the Federal Communications Commission's contentious 30% market share limit on cable TV operators.
