Shortsighted leadership

I don't see Gov. Jan Brewer's action as a matter of boldness. It's simply a wrong action.

Better than no leadership at all

Border security is a federal responsibility, and the federal government's non-performance to date has placed an unfair burden on Arizona that its elected leaders are at least trying to address.

You better be right

In my profession, if my superiors are ineffective, action to compensate is a necessity.

Bucking the ride

Leading up when you are going against the direction of your senior leaders is risky proposition. Senior executives do not like to be challenged, especially by those they outrank.

Arizona's 'Hiccup,' the dragon-trainer

As of late, upper-level leaders had allowed immigration reform to become nothing more than a bullet on a list of "things to do if I am elected." Gov. Jan Brewer is taking action, however much I may disagree with it, towards reforming immigration in the U.S.

When values are a liability

What are the gaps in our educational and social curriculum that make it acceptable for some of our most influential business leaders to forget their duty to followers?

Failed leaders

The leaders of Goldman Sachs have failed. Not just in their business practices, but in their integrity.

What we mean by 'socially responsible'

For much of its existence, the American people simply haven't understood how Goldman operates. Now, that luxury is no longer an option -- Goldman must explain itself better.

'Customer interests first' - really?

Goldman needs to admit their mistakes and somehow convince clients they will "put customers' interests first." The surest way to accomplish this would be to actually keep their promise this time.

Innocent until proven guilty

To Senator Levin and others who are using their pulpits to shape public opinion before all of the facts come out, shame on you.

By Scott DeRue | April 27, 2010; 11:18 AM ET | Comments (5)

Being 'legal' doesn't make it 'right'

What Goldman did in the past may have been "legal" under past standards but a different standard of "what is right" should apply in the future.

Regulators can't restore trust

The more Goldman demonstrates that they understand the public's frustration and articulates a plan for change, the better positioned it is to attract and retain clients.

Post-IPO deception

By most accounts, so long as Goldman Sachs was a partnership, it behaved in a professional manner and was justifiably respected for its behaviors.

By Howard Gardner | April 27, 2010; 6:34 AM ET | Comments (1)

Fire the leaders

Goldman Sachs might be better positioned for the future by asking of its current leadership, 'Are these the right people to have driving the bus?'

By Alaina Love | April 27, 2010; 6:28 AM ET | Comments (3)

Is this the face of capitalism?

You could think about Goldman Sachs the way most of the world thinks of the United States of America.

Don't blame the business schools

We all want to blame someone for the financial crisis, and business schools make an easy target. But hardly it's fair to pin collective blame on business schools for those few bank managements who bet the shop and lost.

By Sir Andrew Likierman | April 26, 2010; 4:26 PM ET | Comments (9)

The business of fleecing others

The better job Goldman Sachs does in explaining exactly what its business is, the more outraged regulators and the public will be.
