Several blurbs this morning:
- “As Regulators Focus on Culture, Wall Street Struggles to Define It,” Wall Street Journal, February 2, 2015 A1. My view is that culture is a critical component of governance, and establishment and maintenance of culture is a key duty of management. Finding uses of “workaround” suggest people may be bypassing rules of policy.
- “Medicare to Publish Payment Data Yearly,” Wall Street Journal, February 2, 2015 A1. Public’s right to know how tax dollars are spent outweighs doctors’ desire to keep their receipt of payments private.
- “Aviation Officials to Address Delays in Plane-Tracking Efforts,” Wall Street Journal, February 2, 2015 A9. It may take years before the airline industry to track planes by satellites.
Who’s responsible for culture? Who wants to know which doctors get how much money from Medicare? And why does it take years to track planes, when Apple can track all its phones today?
