    It’s important to acknowledge when you’ve been wrong, and I’ve probably never been so wrong as I was in an op-ed published on April 13, 2010. At the time, I was stunned by a terrible tragedy: the crash of a plane that had carried the Polish president, Lech Kaczynski.

    Modern negotiation strategies taught in business school usually center on classic texts that describe negotiation without factoring in emotions or irrational behavior. In reality, all negotiations involve emotional factors and illogical reactions. And in hostage scenarios, "splitting the difference" by accepting the release of half the hostages in exchange of partial fulfillment of demands is never a desired outcome.

    No CEO can find a point of balance and then stand still - that's not even possible on a tightrope. The expectation is that the business must always move forward. The American CEO walks a tightrope daily...many times blindfolded and without a net below. The job of balancing the often-competing interests of a company's constituents is so challenging that the average lifespan of a newly minted CEO is around five years.

    There is little that Democrats and Republicans agree on when it comes to American banking. Yet most of them believe that the cause of the financial crisis was a shift in banking practices that resulted in more poor and middle-class households obtaining mortgages, even if they could not afford them — especially the costly, risky mortgages known as subprime loans.

    "Why These Economists Say the Usual Explanation for the Financial Crisis Is Wrong " is from the January 16, 2017 Business section of The Washington Post. It was written by Max Ehrenfreund and narrated by Sam Scholl.

    Elite road racers make running look effortless. While most of us appear to be in pain, their cadence and form belie any of that misery. But there’s good news, middle-of-the-pack runners, because we may have the last laugh: New research shows that while elite runners peak at age 35, the rest of us may not peak until we’re 50.
