Another reason why people with MBAs should just keep their mouths shut. He can praise himself happy I am playing the part of the almighty because I would come out of retirement and give him the Sodomite special treatment.

It's an example of the corporatacracy. Big business doesn't like it, The State will of course take the worst case scenario to to justify it as well - because it gives greater control.

The Revolution Will Not Be DigitizedHow the Internet helps Iran silence activists.

Here's another one: On Wednesday, a reader alerted the Lede to an Iranian government Web site called Gerdab.ir, where authorities had posted pictures of protesters and were asking citizens for help in identifying the activists. That's right—the regime is now using crowd-sourcing, one of the most-hyped aspects of Web 2.0 organizing, against its opponents. If you think about it, that's no surprise. Who said that only the good guys get to use the power of the Web to their advantage?

Seeking Common Ground in Conversations Can Stifle Innovation and Reward the Wrong People
Klint Finley

The best baseball players don’t always get elected All-Stars. And the Nobel Prize doesn’t always go to the most deserving member of the scientific community. This, according to a pair of recent studies, is because such recognition can depend upon how well known an individual is rather than on merit alone. Moreover, because it’s human nature for people to try to find common ground when talking to others, simple everyday conversations could have the unfortunate side effect of blocking many of the best and most innovative ideas from the collective social consciousness.

“In our research, we found that people are most likely to talk about things they think they have in common with others, rather than topics or ideas that are more unusual or striking,” said Nathanael J. Fast, a PhD student at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. Fast is one of three authors of the paper “Common Ground and Cultural Prominence: How Conversation Reinforces Culture,” with Chip Heath of the Stanford Business School, and George Wu of the Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago. “This has the effect of reinforcing—or even institutionalizing—the prominence of familiar cultural elements over ones that are perhaps more deserving.”

This is kinda how i view it:

Toyota: America’s Car Company
July 6th, 2009

Via: Business Insider:

A new study from Cars.com sheds light on the absurdity of thinking cars have a “nationality.”

When you consider that even a post-bailout GM will expand its use of foreign labor, it shouldn’t be that hard to understand how an “American” car isn’t really so, just because its maker was founded in Detroit.

And more generally, there seems to be little reason to think that American cars are really more American in any metrics that matter: Namely, labor and parts inputs.

According to the new survey, the most American car in America is the Toyota Camry, containing the highest percentage of American inputs, even surpassing the Ford F-150. Actually, Toyota utterly dominates the top 10 list, with a Honda thrown in for good measure.

Now some might object to this, saying that even though these cars are “made-in-America”, the value still flows overseas, but really, even that’s not right. Toyota still pays taxes in America. Its stock is traded in the US, and is no doubt owned by individual retail accounts and mutual funds.

On PBS' The NewsHour With Jim Lehrer, Paul Solman examines the calculation of the U.S. unemployment rate, and concludes that the official mark of 9.5 percent should actually be closer to 20 percent.

Who should be but isn't included in the unemployment rate? For starters, involuntary part-timers--people who lost their full-time positions but do some meager sort of part-time work--are counted as fully employed. People scraping by on Social Security disability are not counted among the unemployed. Neither are prisoners, a massive population group who would struggle to find work were they released from jail today. Finally, discouraged workers, those who have spent months or years looking fruitlessly for work, are not counted. As one can see, the official unemployment rate is far too optimistic.

Everybody can agree the number should be and is much higher but that doesn't really matter. The purpose of the number is just to gauge how things are going. As long as the number is calculated the same each time it's still useful.
