business news in context, analysis with attitude

As is my custom at this time of year, I'm taking the last few days of summer off. MNB will be on hiatus until the day after Labor Day, Tuesday, September 5, when we'll return with all new stories and commentaries.

Between now and then, the MNB archives will, of course, be open.

Thanks, as always, for your patience … I hope you also have a chance to enjoy the waning days of summer. I know what I’ll be doing. (See photo.)
