What the rest of the world can do if Trump's administration tears up environmental laws; how a philosopher's lessons on dialog despite diversity helped Canadians come together (can they do the same for U.S.?); the "ridiculously simple thing businesses can do to save millions" (and animals, cute or otherwise); in the absence of action on paid leave, multinationals make their own policies; will it be critical infrastructure or more "bridges to nowhere"? ... understanding Trump's infrastructure promises; and Patagonia shows us how it's done by going all in on Black Friday, for the planet.

Have an idea worth teaching?
Ideas Worth Teaching  is a tightly curated, weekly email for business school faculty to prompt new conversations in the classroom about the relationships between corporations, capital markets, and the public good. Its intent is to provide "drag and drop" functionality - allowing faculty to easily use the articles, cases and other teaching materials that we will be sharing in their class discussions.
