Each TUESDAY, we will be doing a roundup of the latest business news, so part of your participation grade is participating in the discussion. To do so, you will need to read at least one major business publication a week (Wall Street Journal, New York Times Business Section, Barrons, Financial Times, The Economist, etc.). Once your groups have been established we will rotate the group that will take the lead in the Tuesday roundup.
