One of the most popular toys for young American girls during the last several decades has been the Barbie doll, which debuted by the Mattel company in 1959 at the New York Toy Fair.

Brent Sheather: Short-term gain is a financial pain
Two weeks ago we reflected on the dire state of the world's financial markets and speculated that some, if not most, of the blame for our present situation is due to the size, structure and nature of the banking and finance sectors. This idea was originally proposed by Paul Woolley, financier, IMF economist, fund manager and academic, in a lecture in May to the London School of Economics. This week we will look specifically at what he sees as the chief problems of the finance industry and what measures he proposes to sort things out. According to Woolley: "This is no storm in an academic teacup. The implications for ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

He has conducted research on the subject and is author of the book Flavor of the Month: Why Smart People Fall for Fads. So, why do smart people fall for fads?

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Guys: Do you avoid talking to the cute girls that work in your office?
My philosophy is that any group of people who work together needs to have some sort of team spirit. Teams are built on everyone having some sort of interaction. If you don't talk to people, that lessens the unity of the team.   Besides, if you avoid talking to one or more people, that will get you noticed just as well as if you spent a lot of time talking to someone. Also, avoiding someone will raise issues of why you are avoiding them. It also gives rise to hurt feelings.   In my experience, office gossip will go on no matter what you say or do. So worrying how one is perceived is sort of a useless endeavor, if ...

"My software development group, including my manager, was moved recently under another bigger group with different style of management. The new objective for the group is to 'speak as one person', meaning that the reasons behind management decisions are well understood and technical information is well communicated. At first, it seemed to be a very good thing to do. In reality, it was just a disguised authoritarian method of imposing information censorship and making sure there is no opposition within. We used to cooperate openly with each other and people from other groups, exchanging opinions and ideas, but ...
