Worth Magazine to Reinvent Itself -
May 17, 2009 | New York Times | By STEPHANIE CLIFFORD. Sandow
Media’s plan for Worth is to keep the personal finance coverage, with
stories on the pitfalls of philanthropy or interesting investment
vehicles, but to make it more luxe. For its circulation, Worth has
selected about 110,000 high-end recipients with a minimum of $2 million
in wealth, who live near other rich people and subscribe to financial
publications. They will get the publication free, while newsstand buyers
will have to pay $18.95 an issue.

Frisée to Finance, It Has to Be Perfect for Daniel Boulud -
May 16, 2009 | New York Times | By DAVID SEGAL. Article
profiles chef and co-owner Daniel Boulud as he prepares to open a new
restaurant called DBGB in the middle of an economic downturn. Daniel's
firm, The Dinex Group, a management company he co-founded, oversees an
operation with more than 900 employees in markets as far-flung as
Beijing and Vancouver. Creating a restaurant is an endless series of
decisions — the first few large (menu, location) and the next 7,000,000
tiny (where to hide an electrical cord). If there’s a guiding principle,
it’s a preference for econo-class over luxury, without stinting on

What exactly are chief executives for?
May 15 2009 | Financial Times | By Stefan Stern. First,
making sure that the voice of the consumer is heard loudest and clearest
of all, above that of any other stakeholder. Second, deciding what
business you are in - and equally, what businesses you should not be in.
Third, balancing the need for performance in the short term with the
need to invest for the longer term. Fourth, the CEO has to shape values
and standards.

The secret behind good leadership
May 15 2009 | Financial Times | By Emily Stokes. This article
profiles Ronald Heifetz of Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.
Heifetz’s innovation in the 1980s was to suggest that leadership was not
the same as authority or management; instead, it was the activity of
mobilising “the community” to tackle tough problems, which he calls
“adaptive challenges”.

To fix the economy, tell the right stories
May 14, 2009 | Globe and Mail | by ROBERT SHILLER

World confidence can return if the population's thinking co-ordinates
around some inspiring story beyond that of the price increases
themselves. In Shiller's book with George Akerlof, Animal Spirits, they
describe the ups and downs of a macroeconomy as being substantially
driven by stories. Such narratives, especially those fuelled by
accessible human-interest stories, are the thought viruses whose
contagion drives the economy. The contagion rate of stories depends on
their relation to feedback, but plausible stories have to be there in
the first place. The narratives have substantial persistence in that
they affect our views.

What Does Your Credit-Card Company Know About You? -
May 12, 2009 | New York Times | By CHARLES DUHIGG. Credit card
companies are focusing on those customers most likely to honor their
debts. Credit-card companies are investing more in understanding their
customers’ lives and psyches, because they believe knowing what makes
cardholders tick will help firms differentiate those who are good risks
from those who should be weeded out.
