An anthology Malcolm Gladwell has called qriveting and indispensable, q qThe Best Business Writingq is a far-ranging survey of business's dynamic relationship with politics, culture, and life. This year's selections include John Markoff ( qNew York Timesq) on innovations in robot technology and the decline of the factory worker; Evgeny Morozov ( qNew Republicq) on the questionable value of the popular TED conference series and the idea industry behind it; Paul Kiel ( qProPublicaq) on the ripple effects of the ongoing foreclosure crisis; and the infamous op-ed by Greg Smith, published in the qNew York Times, q announcing his break with Goldman Sachs over its trading practices and corrupt corporate ethos. Jessica Pressler ( qNew Yorkq) delves into the personal and professional rivalry between Tory and Christopher Burch, former spouses now competing to dominate the fashion world. Peter Whoriskey ( qWashington Postq) exposes the human cost of promoting pharmaceuticals off-label. Charles Duhigg and David Barboza ( qNew York Timesq) investigate Apple's unethical labor practices in China. Max Abelson ( qBloombergq) reports on Wall Street's amusing reaction to the diminishing annual bonus. Mina Kimes ( qFortuneq) recounts the grisly story of a company's illegal testing -- and misuse -- of a medical device for profit, and Jeff Tietz ( qRolling Stoneq) composes one of the most poignant and comprehensive portraits of the financial crisis's dissolution of the American middle class.Next my Twitter account was compromised and used as a platform to broadcast racist and homophobic messages.
