In Defense of the CEO

Fri, 2013-01-11 10:53

A $90,000 area rug, a pair of guest chairs that cost almost as much, a $35,000 toilet and a $1,400 trash can—these are just a few of the expenses from a remodeling of John Thain's office when he took over as Merrill Lynch's chief executive officer in December 2007. The total bill came to an astonishing $1.2 million—about the price of five average single-family homes.

'An MBA teaches you business, not management'

Mon, 2013-02-25 09:46

Henry Mintzberg has been called a consistently contrary Canadian academic who sometimes seems to be undermining the very industry that he works in by The Economist. A noted author, management guru and a frequent visitor to India since 1995, Mintzberg, who's been a professor of management studies at McGill University in Montreal, Canada for 40 years, spoke to TOI-Crest about why governments can't really solve big global crises, what doesn't work with teaching management and why we really need to recognise what he calls 'the plural sector.'

Postgraduate Law Degrees: Judge the Merits of a Masters

Tue, 2013-03-26 12:15

Postgraduate training in law can provide students with plenty of opportunities: a legal career is just one of them. Existing lawyers might seek to augment their skills with a Masters qualification. Those on other career paths might add another dimension to their knowledge with a little legal learning. Some might simply enjoy the academic rigour of legal study.

Bernanke's World War II Monetary Regime

Mon, 2013-03-25 15:36

When a government spends beyond its means, the options for paying for the spree are unattractive. It can burden the populace with higher taxes, or it can wipe out a portion of creditors' wealth by inflating the money supply, repaying debts with a debased currency. Or it can do both. The United States is avoiding these choices by borrowing enormous sums, bringing federal debt to almost $17 trillion, at interest rates that the Federal Reserve has managed to keep very low. For now.
