Sound long-term strategy is key, particularly in a crisis
With the current global economic downturn and dire predictions of a re-run of the Great Depression of the 1930s, the forecast is all doom and gloom.

But Professor Michael Porter of Harvard University, a leading authority on competitive strategy, begs to differ. He believes this time of great economic upheaval to be the tipping point for companies – if only they know how to harness the right strategies.

English: Brian Reed - Less is More: Contemporary Poems Composed Through Deletion
Open lecture by Professor Brian Reed, Department of English, University of Washington. Since the turn of the millennium, a number of poets have begun composing verse by taking pre-existing texts and selectively deleting words, phrases, sentences, and even whole sections. Does it make sense to call such poets "writers" in anything but a very loose sense, since, instead of generating text, they remove it? Moreover, since they give us nothing but passages of borrowed language with the original wor

"Environmental Disaster in the Marshes of Southern Iraq"
Josh Ellis has an M.A. in Middle Eastern Studies/Public Policy, University of Chicago. There is little doubt that climate change, deforestation, erosion, and the unequal distribution of natural resources around the globe are of pressing importance everywhere, but these problems are perhaps most acute in Asia, home to 64 percent of the world’s population. Much of this population (1 and 1.3 billion, respectively) is concentrated in India and China, two countries with rapidly growing economies,

Jeremy Siegel: We Can Look for More Gains in the Stock Market
All eyes and ears were on the two-day meeting of the Federal Reserve's Open Market Committee (FOMC) that ended on March 21. While most observers did not expect interest rates to change, the markets were keen to know what language the Fed would use about inflation in its statement on economic and monetary policy. The U.S. economy has seen mixed signals lately, and concerns about recession have been replaced by worries about "stagflation" -- or stagnation combined with inflation. Is stagflation re

The Talent Hunt: Getting the People You Need, When You Need Them
Ask any CEO or senior level executive what his or her biggest challenge is, and the answer is almost always finding and keeping good people. Yet most executives fail to manage their company's needs in a way that recognizes the unpredictability of the global marketplace. In a book titled, Talent on Demand: Managing Talent in an Age of Uncertainty, Peter Cappelli, director of Wharton's Center for Human Resources, proposes a new approach to this issue based on applying the principles of supply chai

Can 'Cash for Clunkers' Help Jump-start the Auto Industry?
Ford reported its first sales gain in 20 months, thanks to the U.S. government's "cash for clunkers" rebate program that gives consumers a rebate of up to $4,500 to trade in older cars for new and more fuel-efficient models. Other manufacturers said their continuing sales declines would have been worse without the program. All in all, the officially named Car Allowance Rebate System (CARS) provided taxpayers with a good return on their investment, Wharton management professor John Paul MacDuffie

12 Oct 2010: Aftershock: The Next Economy and America's Future
When the nations economy foundered in 2008, blame was directed almost universally at Wall Street. But University of California, Berkeley, public policy professor Robert B. Reich suggests a different reason for the meltdown, and for the perilous road ahead. In his book Aftershock: The Next Economy and Americas Future, he argues that the real problem lies in the increasing concentration of wealth at the top, and in a middle class that has to go into debt to maintain a decent standard of living.
