The tide has turned against WeWork after it misjudged appetite for an IPO — now its trouble is deepening. Here's everything that's going on inside the coworking giant.

WeWork pulled its IPO in 2019 after mulling a massive valuation cut to drum up investor interest, and cofounder Adam Neumann was ousted as CEO and chairman. WeWork has been slashing jobs and selling or shuttering businesses.  New CEO real-estate veteran Sandeep Mathrani started in February, replacing Artie Minson and Sebastian Gunningham, who served as co-CEOs since Neumann was ousted. In April, investor SoftBank said it's backing out of its plan to buy $3 billion worth of WeWork shares, inclu...

11 Lesser-Known Songs That Showed Adam Schlesinger Was A Power-Pop Master

Hire People with Common Sense and Good Critical Judgement

Guest post by Stan Silverman: During a recent event to launch my book, Be Different! The Key to Business and Career Success, I spoke about the importance of hiring people with common sense and good critical judgment because at some point, you want them to violate policy when it is in the company’s best interest to do so. I described an experience early in my career while serving as national sales manager for one of my company’s operating divisions. I was informed that product...

A Quarantine from Reality: Italian Goes to America, Son Opens a Bank, Helps Rebuild a Community, a City, a State, and a Country

It seems that what's dictating the human agenda right now is fear. Each day we get our rationing of counts—who lived, who died, who told a story. Right out of Hamilton, the show. The avalanche of articles and news alerts seem to indicate that anything goes. In a business setting, which is what I'm used to, when a new situation like the one we're facing creates a change, the first line of defense from letting it overtake you is what you say to others and your internal conversation. Because those ...

Donald Trump’s insult politics

Political commentators and satirists love to mock Donald Trump’s verbal gaffs, his simplified vocabulary and vague, boastful speech. But if you judge his oratory by its effect on the audience, Donald Trump’s rhetoric, particularly with large crowds of enthusiastic supporters, is undeniably effective. People have studied the art of rhetoric for millennia – so how does a style that runs counter to all established advice work so well? His use of simple vocabulary and repetition help him connect wit...

The legacy of Tom Coburn

The country lost a great example over the weekend when former U.S. Senator Tom Coburn died from prostate cancer. He was 72. Like anyone, he had a mixed record. For example, he didn’t support same-sex marriage, which I believe was as misguided at the time as I do now. But he also left behind a legacy of principled support for limited government and thrifty use of taxpayer funds as well as having the character to develop friendships with people with whom he profoundly disagreed. That’s how I’ll re...

Private sector working to ensure it doesn’t get worse before it gets better

The federal government’s efforts to combat the ongoing coronavirus pandemic illustrate why we shouldn’t put our full trust in government to find a cure. After all, they badly botched the testing, costing valuable time in identifying new cases and limiting its spread. Fortunately, private-sector innovators are leading where government has underwhelmed, conducting speedy research and development into potentially life-saving cures, while providing critical support in other areas where government ac...

Why Do (Some) Originalists Hate America?

Imagine a regime whose fundamental law is only to be found in ancient archives, whose mysterious contents take years to unearth, layer by layer.  Each new discovery brings about a revolution, as large bodies of established law are unexpectedly discarded and others, previously rejected, spring back into life as the scholars revise earlier conclusions.  The operations of government are in constant confusion and disarray.  And this state of affairs is likely to persist indefinitely.    ...
