‘Trove’ is a weekly compilation of stories and articles that have captured my attention and compelled me to read on.
I didn’t get much reading done this week…enough though, to cobble together this week’s list; which appears to heavily favor New York publications. This week we hear from Paul Krugman, who always makes things sound so easy; we continue on last week’s climate change thread, by looking at some strange and scary fixes that could become a reality if things don’t change soon; an insightful look into the history of our higher education system and how colleges fight to balance the need to make money and provide high quality education, with the need to keep tuition from becoming even more out of reach; an amazing, sad, and brave story of a woman who experienced tragedy and went through a unique transition to put her family’s life back together; and finally, as Facebook grapples with their IPO troubles, a great journey through Mark Zuckerberg’s growth as CEO and how his leadership style is turning Wall Street upside-down…Happy reading!
