(Reuters) – If Minneapolis Federal Reserve President Neel Kashkari gets his way, the U.S. central bank may soon be getting a more frequent earful from what he sees as an overlooked community: workers.

Kashkari on Wednesday said he is working with the staff of his bank to retool how they contribute to the Beige Book, the pulse-taking economic survey the 12 regional banks in the Federal Reserve system conduct ahead of the eight scheduled policy-setting meetings each year.

In Kashkari’s view, the voice of business is over-represented in Fed policy deliberations, he said during a virtual conference hosted by the Minneapolis Fed. One of the contributors to that is that the Beige Book features economic anecdotes collected almost exclusively from business contacts across each bank’s

New Book from MIT Professor Helps Businesses Reshape Strategy Beyond Covid-19

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — In his new book The New (Ab)Normal: Reshaping Business and Supply Chain Strategy Beyond Covid-19, published today, MIT Professor Yossi Sheffi maps how companies grappled with the chaos of the Covid-19 pandemic and how they can survive and thrive as the crisis subsides.

Thinking Of Writing A Book To Grow Your Business? Five Questions To Consider Before You Dive In

Since I wrote my book The Million-Dollar, One-Person Business, many entrepreneurs have asked me if publishing their own book will help them take their business to the next level. Some hope it will attract new business or speaking opportunities. Others want it to become the basis for a new product, such as a course.

I usually tell them it depends.

A book can be very helpful in growing a business, but not always. Before you dive in, it’s important to give it serious thought. Writing and polishing book requires more time and effort than most people think, whether you work with a commercial publisher or self-publish. As an entrepreneur, you’ve got to balance that against other demands on your time—like running your business.

Halley: Banned Book Week a sad reminder that censorship exists – Opinion – Austin American-Statesman

This past week, while going about my business on the second floor of the library, my attention was abruptly redirected from my to-do list to the new display next to the service desk, titled Banned Books Week: Censorship is a Dead End.

Ericca Long, our newest staff member, was working on the display. Each book was creatively hidden under a flyer that must be lifted to view the title. The first book I peeked at was one of my favorites, “The Color Purple” by Alice Walker – a required read on many high school lists, but due to its “controversial” content regularly threatened by bans and challenges in schools across the country since 1984. Many other books have faced similar censorship threats over the years, including such classics as “Catcher in the Rye,” “Lord of the Flies,” “Catch-22” and George Orwell’s “1984.”
