How to sell human capital?

This is a guest post by Grant Hensel of Viibrant. If you stripped Bill Gates of his assets and dumped him on the street…he’d be back to living a comfortable life with plenty of income in about a week. Why? Bill Gates has tons of human capital . Wikipedia defines human capital as “The stock of competencies, knowledge, social and personality attributes, including creativity, embodied in the ability to perform labor so as to produce economic value.” If Bill Gates suddenly became homeless he could walk into the headquarters of any major company on the planet, offer his services…

By Barry Wilson and Martin Bader On July 9, 2012, a three judge panel of the Federal Circuit in CLS Bank International v. Alice Corporation (Appeal No. 2011-1301) ("CLS Bank"), decided a case of patent eligibility under 35 U.S.C. § 101.

In holding the claims valid, the court found that the claims at issue included computer implemented…

Isn’t It Time Brands Started Acting More Human? Joy Panos Stauber, Chicago-based brand communications designer writes: A brand is not a veneer you apply to make a business (or product or service or idea) appealing to its intended audience. Instead, a brand begins to exist when a business has something to offer to the world—values, services, or products. From there, the brand’s work is to articulate those unique attributes and strive to communicate them the right way, and to the right people. Even so, a brand is not what a business says it is. It’s what the consumer ends up perceiving…

How to buy relational capital?

As I keep reading more and more about outsourcing and meeting and discussing matters with industry players, the more it becomes clear that effective communication is the key to project success. And despite that, the importance of measuring quality of communication in an organisation is not getting the importance that it deserves. As more and more companies consider  outsourcing to achieve cost reduction and process efficiency, it becomes clear that the strength of the network becomes the focal point. This is essentially, relational capital, which would form the competitive advantage…

This lit review (of sorts) was written as the final paper for a course on Urban Social Networks taught by Zak Neal in the Soc department at MSU (after this class, I asked Zak to join my dissertation committee and he agreed. Hooray!). It teases out some of the ideas I’ve been trying to think through to relate this strange ambiguous concept of “social entrepreneurship” with social networks and social movements. Specifically, I ask how scholars of entrepreneurship versus scholars of social movements think about network capital, or  patterns of relationships. In the entrepreneurship…

Haplogroups statistically explain 50% of the IQ variance among 42 nations. The amount explained is approximately the same as found by Rindermann et al.; the novelty of this paper is that a globally representative sample is used. Lynn and Vanhanen’s new book, Intelligence: A Unifying Construct for the Social Sciences, which contains updated national IQs for 161 nations is due to release July 16th, so an enterprising researcher can soon replicate the results using a more comprehensive data bank. A novel extension of this line of research would be to look at the National K variance…

For quickly growing startup or expansion-stage software companies, raising venture capital should be cause for celebration. Champagne bottles should pop, high fives should ensue, and every stakeholder should salivate over the ways in which the business can leverage its cash infusion to scale and drive future growth. And while most investments start that way, it isn’t long before some companies’ euphoria gives way to disaster. Unfortunately, starting from the notorious “Webvan” of the dotcom bubble, the high tech “deadpool” is infamously littered with many examples of ventures…

Right before the release of my book, Pricing Strategy, the husband of my boss asked me to tell him what pricing strategy is all about, and he said “make it simple, I don’t want the details.”  I knew he was serious. And I knew he was smart. With my boss, who is also the Chair of the DePaul Marketing Department sitting right next to him, I knew this was a “make-it-or-break-it” moment. After researching and writing for years, how was I to explain the entire body of thought on pricing in 15 seconds or less? I took a sip of my beverage then dove into with full blunt force: “There…

As the attack on workers and the unemployed – and its horrendous human consequences - gathers pace, so the plunge into what Barbara Ehrenreich calls the post-rational[1] accelerates with it. The brutality of 21st-century capitalism, like the movie bankrobber in a clown mask, wears the rictus grin of malevolent good cheer. “Think of it as a massive experiment in mind control. “Reality sucks, ” a computer scientist with a master’s degree who can find only short-term, benefit-free contract jobs told me. But you can’t change reality, at least not in any easy and obvious way. You…

Guardian | The global battle for natural resources – from food and water to energy and precious metals – is only beginning, and will intensify to proportions that could mean enormous upheavals for every country, leading academics and business figures told a conference in Oxford on Thursday.
