U.S. and China to Hold Talks on Hacking

The talks will begin in July. Next Friday, President Obama and President Xi Jinping of China, who took office this spring, are scheduled to hold an unusual, informal summit meeting in Rancho Mirage, Calif., that could set the tone for their relationship and help them confront chronic tensions like the nuclear threat from North Korea.

The economist Group - Management Thinking Digest - Smart SMBs: Fine-tuning the engines of growth.































Small businesses around the world are turning to efficiency in their search for growth, according to
a new survey from the EIU, sponsored by Symantec. Over the next 12 months, the top two strategic objectives for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) will be revenue growth and operating efficiency. Moreover, the survey shows a close link between growth and efficiency: according to 55% of respondents the main driver of planned efficiency improvements will be to expand the business – much more so than reducing costs (24%).

On our blog site, Dr Jonathan Trevor and Dr Mark Thompson, professors at Judge Business School, Cambridge, tell us why the siloed organisations have had their day. And Erik Van Druten from Capgemini Global Financial Services explores how 21st century banks can build better customer relationships.

Finally, next week we'll be broadcasting a live debate on the future of banking. Register now for The Good Bank debate and join the online conversation on how we can change the global financial industry.
