Merida Meridian sells all-natural rugs. That's a noble distinction amid a market dominated by petroleum-based rugs. But company owner Hiram Samel, an MIT Sloan Fellows alum, has his sights set higher. He is eyeing the possibility of selling rugs that are "fully sustainable," a distinction that would incorporate an array of values associated with the production and distribution of the rugs. With that in mind, Samel asked a team of students in MT Sloan's Sustainability Lab to determine if a market exists for a sustainable rug. While the team found such a product is not yet viable, team member Basmaa Ali tells correspondent Scott Rolph that Merida and other companies would be well served by preparing for an era when "sustainable" is as valuable on the market as "ergonomic" and "organic."
Megan Ford's road to business school took some less-than-traditional turns. A member of the Screen Actor's Guild, Megan has worked in front of the camera and behind the scenes on several movies and tv shows (see Mona Lisa Smile, Law and Order, Dawson's Creek). Through her strong connections in the New York film and political communities, she became involved in the non-profit Asia Society, traveling throughout India, Japan, Kazakhstan, Thailand, and Korea. The more time she spent off set, the more Megan began to think about her long-term goals. She took the first step toward a new career by coming to MIT Sloan. Her current focus is the strategy and marketing side of media and entertainment; it's certainly different from acting, but Megan will be on familiar ground. Before beginning her internship with Disney, Megan talked with correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate about the benefits of the alumni network, the joys of production, and the difference between the talent side and the studio side.
From The Wall Street Journal It is a basic tenet of economics that regulations almost always have unintended consequences. While Adam Smith may have been one of the first to understand this, he could not have possibly foreseen the morass of expensive and unwanted consequences that could come from conflicting emission and fuel standards enacted by the state of California and federal programs, such as for greenhouse gases and Corporate Average Fuel Economy. Both the state and federal regulations have worthy goals: to decrease greenhouse-gas emissions and lower petroleum consumption. Yet taken together, the federal standards effectively cancel out the California standard. Instead of promoting fuel reduction as intended, the California standard allows for the production of less-efficient vehicles, while facilitating a massive transfer of cash via credit trading. It also forms a de facto industrial policy that sends us down a path toward electric vehicles that may or may … Read More »The post California’s auto-emissions policy hits a Tesla pothole — Christopher Knittel appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.
