Immobilier résidentiel: printemps post-électoral à Montréal

Fri, 2014-04-11 16:24

Maintenant que la saison froide - et surtout la campagne électorale - est terminée, l'industrie immobilière anticipe un certain redressement du marché ce printemps à Montréal.

«On prévoit que le prochain trimestre sera probablement beaucoup plus fort que celui qu'on vient de vivre, là, maintenant que les élections et l'hiver sont derrière nous, a fait valoir à La Presse Affaires Dominic St-Pierre (EMBA'14), directeur de Royal LePage pour le Québec. Il y a des signes encourageants.»

Herald Food Writer Bugs Out for Dinner

Fri, 2014-04-11 16:21

Between the three of us, a small plate is piled high with the grasshopper bodies.

They have been roasted, salted and flavoured with some spicy chipotle, but they are also clearly identifiable as insects with an exoskeleton and, in the case of many, including the first one I grab, little eyes.

... “Insects are the food of the future,” says Jesse Pearlstein, chief financial officer for the collection of students, known as Aspire Food Group.

Mintzberg On Why You Need To View A Company As 'A Community Of Human Beings'

Fri, 2014-04-11 16:18

“I’m a human being, not a human resource”. Is something I have heard my colleague Henry Mintzberg say a number of times. It really seems to resonate with people. Recently Henry published on his website an e-pamphlet called Rebalancing Society. In it he argues that society rests on three key pillars: government, business and what he calls plural society. Henry believes that business today in the West has too much power and we need more of the plural society.

Reflections from South Korea

Fri, 2014-04-11 16:15

Recently, I visited South Korea and Mongolia along with a group of McGill University undergraduates and alumni. This trip was part of the Hot Cities of the World Tour organized by Professor Karl Moore of the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University. Frankly, South Korea was an incredible place to visit; especially from an economic perspective. South Korea is the world's 12th largest economy, as well as a global leader in the manufacture of automobiles and electronics. Despite these successes however, South Korea's economy does face key issues.

Tanya Graber, a resident of Switzerland, researched fashion retailer Aldo on the Internet before her vacation to New York City.
