That’s (Mostly) It for Comments

This summer, Going Concern turns nine. Over that time, the site has changed a lot — to the chagrin of some, to the delight of others. In any case, one of the mainstays during this time has been the comments on articles. This week will bring more change to the site, as we’ve been working […]

Programming Note: Moving The Furniture Around

Lots of announcements today, people. Do you mind? No, you don’t mind. We’re rolling out a newly designed Going Concern starting Monday so the site will be dark tomorrow and through the weekend while the tech savvy youths do their thing. This means no surprise weekend posts and no Open Items will be published. You’ll […]

Take the Going Concern Reader Survey

From time to time, the publishing overlords that run this joint like to survey you, our beloved audience. If you would be so kind to complete this survey, I'm told it won't take long and is painless. There's even a chance for you to tell us what you like, don't like, etc. Kindly help us […]

Programming Note: Talk Amongst Yourselves

FYI, denizens of Going Concern: our esteemed editor will be away for the rest of the day and all of tomorrow so posting will be on the light side. You can still send in tips and links by hitting the button at the top of the page or emailing them to us. You can also […]

A Little Help From My Friends

I took the day off on Friday to travel to parts unknown. Alright, maybe "unknown" is a stretch; I went into the mountains to avoid civilization and showering for a few days. It was great! During my absence, Professor Paul Gillis and Leona May chipped in with excellent posts on polar opposite topics: Executive MBAs […]

A Midsummer Workday’s Time Killer

The best reason to go to work in late July is the commercial air conditioning. That is a fact. But a close second (for accountants anyway) is reading the summer scuttlebutt on Going Concern. Money, miserable performance reviews, money, questionable career choices, money, skill development and, oh yeah, money.  It's usually enough to fill the non-billable hours […]
