If Retailers Want to Compete with Amazon, They Should Use Their Tax Savings to Raise Wages
Enis Aksoy/Getty Images Walmart announced today that it is raising its starting wages in the United States from $9 per hour to $11, giving employees one-time cash bonuses of as much as $1,000, and expanding maternity and parental leave benefits as a result of the recently enacted tax reform. It is part of Walmart’s broader effort to create a better experience for its employees and customers. The new tax law creates a major business opportunity for other retailers as well — if their leaders are wise enough to take advantage of it. The U.S. corporate tax rate is [...]

How to Have a Good Debate in a Meeting
Hirokazu Jike/Getty Images The modern workplace is awash in meetings, many of which are terrible. As a result, people mostly hate going to meetings. The problem is this: The whole point of meetings is to have discussions that you can’t have any other way. And yet most meetings are devoid of real debate. To improve the meetings you run, and save the meetings you’re invited to, focus on making the discussion more robust. When teams have a good fight during meetings, team members debate the issues, consider alternatives, challenge one another, listen to minority views, and scru [...]

Why the Rewards for Ambitious Problem Solving Are About to Get Bigger
John Devolle/Getty Images A decade ago, Microsoft was considered a dinosaur. It had missed the shift to mobile, was out of step with consumer tastes, and seemed too big and slow to adapt to a digital world that was moving at hyperspeed. Yet today the company is thriving again, largely driven by its growing cloud business. This is not a new effort. In fact, it began in the early 2000s, but was little noticed until recently. In much the same way, IBM’s Watson project, which is helping the venerable company overcome the disruption of its traditional business, began in 2005. Google has cre [...]

What the Future of U.S. Antitrust Should Look Like
Purviance/William T./The New York Public Library Market concentration is rising while economic competition — the bedrock of a dynamic, free market economy — is under threat. No wonder the framework that has guided antitrust enforcement for the last four decades is coming under intense scrutiny.

To determine which one is best — and we do have a view — it’s helpful to review the growing evidence on why market concentration is so dangerous to the economy [...]

In our work with professionals at many of the Fortune 100 companies, the question “How can I help my partner de-stress?” has become more common than ever.

The “Quiet Life” Hypothesis Is Real: Managers Will Put Off Hard Decisions If They Can
Kenneth Andersson for HBR In competitive markets, managers have a strong incentive to give their best effort. But economists have long argued that when companies are insulated from competition, their managers may not be motivated to maximize the profit of the firm and instead may choose to enjoy the “quiet life.” Similarly, without sufficient monitoring by owners of the firms or the stock market, managers might be tempted to enjoy the quiet life instead of making hard decisions or taking on difficult tasks. But are the economists right? Do managers really work less hard wit [...]
