Before diving into the work week, check out these two well written articles.
The first is by Paul Krugman and is about taxes. Taxes? First, take your finger off the panic button. Krugman may be an economist, but unlike a lot of economists, he writes well. Ok, now that we have calmed down a bit, consider that tax policy is likely to be the main political battleground of the next decade. Krugman’s views have a way of becoming mainstream.
The second is a review of Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs by Donal Lynch. The less interesting news from the article - Jobs was not a saint. To the contrary, from what we already know, he was an egomaniac and a bully. He also happened to be the most interesting manifestation of a new paradigm for doing business - the disrupter. And no one can dispute that Jobs played this role brilliantly.
