Wanted: More “Can Do” Business Stories in Major Press

Every day, I scan the mainstream press for my daily dose of financial and business news that defines the state of the economy. I see a lot of bad news, and some good news. Striking examples of each landed in my inbox today (Thursday, 10/6). The WSJ’s story could not have piled on more doom and gloom: “Worries Deepen that Globalization is Hitting the Skids” (italics mine).The article lays out multiple problems but not one possible solution. By contrast, the NY Times published a feature about a “can do” company: “MailChimp and the Un-Silicon Valley Way to Make It as a Start-Up: No venture capital, No Bay Area presence, No crazy burn rate.” If you want to know more about business, better, which kind of story would you like to read more of?
