20 puff pieces

Like a cheap version of FT/Forbes glowing bios of executives and entrepreneurs. The protagonists have no flaws except that they are too intelligent, too kind or too committed. These glaring flaws are all evident in the first headline story. They made chips. It was a new market. There are existing competitors. Everyone treated each other poorly from suppliers to vendors - a common enough story when you are a small trader in all developing countries. So how did they make it? There is no talk of what they offered that was better except that they were kinder, more honest and fairer. How about telling us how they found good partners with whom this worked, that valued fairness and long term relationships. Listening to folks working in developing countries, finding people who thought in terms of long term mutually gainful business relationships was one of the biggest challenges. This is one example of the gaping holes in the stories. I stopped after the 4th story. Waste of time.
