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 4, when we'll return with all new hand-crafted stories and commentaries.

Between now and then, the MNB archives will, of course, be open. If anything big happens, I’ll weigh in on it. (This is not an idle threat. Last year, Amazon completed its $13.7 billion purchase of Whole Foods. I came back.)

Thanks, as always, for your support … I hope you also have a chance to enjoy the waning days of summer.
