A combination of factors is causing concern over rising prices: a big increase in money supply, central banks' determination not to choke off a recovery, and a possible post-pandemic consumer spending boom to name but a few.

Work smart not hard
Our workforce is burning out. And the pandemic has made things worse for many.

The survey also noted increased job demands and growing disengagement at work. Swipe for some of the open-ended responses from the fall 2020 survey, which analyzed the state of burnout and well-being during Covid-19 — and read more at HBR.org/burnout.

Yelp doesn't help small businesses so lets help each other out!
I own a small business called Rosewood San Diego which is a shoe store in San Diego. Yelp has been deleting all the positive reviews and leaving all the shitty ones. How come customers can lie or exaggerate without any repercussion? I say we fight back!
