Courtesy of my colleague @RBLevin: "Content moves from "king" and a vertical ("content marketing") to the centerpiece of communications. Good ideas are no longer enough. PR shops need to be able to ideate, create, collaborate (internally and with media), copyright (yes, the client can own what the media publishes), publish, orchestrate, marshal, and measure their stories"

IMF: Europe Risks Long Stagnation

IMF: Europe Risks Long Stagnation | Financial & Business Headlines | Scoop.it

LONDON—The euro zone could suffer an even more prolonged period of economic stagnation that would make the task of reducing government and private sector debt levels more difficult, particularly if "adjustment fatigue" stalls needed changes, the International Monetary Fund said Tuesday.

 

In its twice-yearly World Economic Outlook, the Fund said the euro zone remains the weakest part of the global economy, and warned that a long period of low growth in the currency area would weaken the potential for expansion in the neighboring economies of central and Eastern Europe, as well as further afield.

Joe Anthony's insight:

Is the risk due to demographics, policy or debt? Or all of the above?

The Economist | The euro area needs structural reforms but they can cause damage when economies are weak

The Economist | The euro area needs structural reforms but they can cause damage when economies are weak | Financial & Business Headlines | Scoop.it

"THROUGHOUT the euro crisis, policymakers have been desperate to buy time so that the therapies prescribed for troubled European economies can be administered. The European Central Bank’s new bond-purchasing strategy has ushered in another period of respite, which with luck will last longer than previous ones. There are two main courses of treatment for peripheral economies. One is austerity, to get public finances under control. The other is structural reform, to boost growth.

 

Structural reform comes in many guises ..."

Value of financial planner: 1.8 percent per year | Tulsa World

Value of financial planner: 1.8 percent per year | Tulsa World | Financial & Business Headlines | Scoop.it

Key comment:  The specific investments, however, typically are less important than many of the other decisions around building an investment portfolio.

    By CHARLES JAFFE | Market Watch

 

For decades now, investors have wondered about the value of financial planning, specifically whether it's "worth it" to pay someone to mastermind a course of action.

 

After all, it's tough to see just how much a proper asset-allocation plan, or the right withdrawal strategy, really "adds" to performance.

 

Thanks to new research from Morningstar Inc., however, investors now have an idea of what they can expect from hiring the ideal planner.

 

It's an extra 1.82 percent per year.

The Social Media Monster [Infographic]

The Social Media Monster [Infographic] | Financial & Business Headlines | Scoop.it
It's no surprise that social media consumes a good amount of our time, and it's perfectly fine when you have nothing else to do, but when you are at work its a big no-no.

This infographic illustrates just how distracting social media can be in the workforce. According to a study conducted by Microsoft, social media causes an average of four interruptions per hour. Also, over 40% of disrupted tasks were not immediately resumed.

So how much are all these interruptions going to cost the economy? A whopping $650 billion dollars a year is lost due to interruptions (aka Facebook).

It all makes sense though, with over 1 billion Facebook posts per day, 62 billion emails sent every day, and 400 million tweets per day, it's understandable why people are gettin distracted. Many businesses are taking matters into their own hands and blocking social sites on their networks so employees cannot view them. However, if you just unplug every once in a while and wait until after work to check your Facebook or Twitter, your productivity will increase and your boss will be happier...
