They Come to Bury Gold, Not to Praise It

Delvin D. Hawley, Ph.D.  |  Finance

Gold prices have tumbled to a five-year low and analysts are predicting they will fall even lower by December. The drop is due in part to the high likelihood that the Fed will increase interest rates this year, which will draw investors away from gold and into bonds.

The Google Tamer

Katherine Campbell, Ph.D.  |  Org Behavior & HR

Google is known for innovation and a freewheeling culture that has contributed to its consistent record of growth. And as long as ad revenues have continued to grow, so has spending.

Douglas L. Wilson, MBA  |  Marketing

Digital shelf displays continue to blur the lines between shopping online and in a store as retailers embrace both “bricks and clicks” to compete with Amazon and online retailers. As Amazon continues to grow, will this technology provide a competitive edge for brick-and-mortar stores?

J. Vincent Eagan, JD, Ph.D.  |  Business Law

The Department of Justice has won record settlements in Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) cases, even though the government has a poor record going to trial in FCPA cases. Corporate defendants have dared to go to trial only twice since the act came into law 35 years ago, but won both cases.

Innovation: Child Prostheses

Craig A. Turner, Ph.D.  |  Entrepreneurship

E-Nable designs 3D-printed prostheses for children older than 3 and shares its blueprints so they can be made for as little as $30. This way, the prostheses can be easily replaced as the kids outgrow them.

The Smartphone Shields Are Down

Duane Helleloid, Ph.D.  |  International Business

The large smartphone companies have done well in recent years, with rising sales and profits. Part of the reason for their success is the growing market for smartphones in China. However, the smartphone market in China may be reaching saturation, with most consumers who want and can afford a smartphone already owning one.

Big Data: Searching for Drug Side Effects

Angelina I. T. Kiser, Ph.D.  |  Information Technology
