Altro che studenti, turisti o facoltose signore. A far la coda per entrare agli Uffizi o alla Cappella Sistina dovrebbero essere gli industriali. Manager e imprenditori, seduti davanti a Raffaello o a Picasso per prendere familiarità con la strategia più trendy del momento: la bellezza. Se ne parla sulla rivista di economia di Harvard, all "Acadamy of Management”, la Copenaghen Business School ha dedicato al rapporto fra arte e leadership un intero dipartimento.

Patent controversies continue to roil the business world. In March, a federal judge slashed by nearly half the $1.05 billion in damages awarded Apple last year in its patent-infringement suit against Samsung. On April 1, India's Supreme Court denied Novartis AG's request, after a seven-year legal battle, to gain patent protection for an updated version of its blockbuster leukemia drug Gleevac. And on April 15, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics, challenging Myriad's claim to patent a naturally occurring gene.
