A Sickbed Call From Historian David McCullough

CFO News Room

When I caught chickenpox from my infant daughter in 1997, I knew I was in trouble. The virus can be serious when it strikes adults, and I was brought low with blisters, high fever and body aches so sharp that I felt like I’d been pierced by a quiver of arrows. The only bright spot was a call from David McCullough, the Pulitzer Prize-winning historian who died on Sunday at 89. When I answered the phone and heard McCullough on the other end, I assumed I was delirious.

SoftBank Needs a Vision Check

CFO News Room

SoftBank chief executive officer, Masayoshi Son, says he is embarrassed and remorseful after the company reported record losses.

The Chamber of Commerce’s House of Horrors

CFO News Room

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce may be the nation’s premier business lobby, but it could use some counseling on its political investments. The lobby’s bet in 2020 that supporting “centrist” House Democrats would protect against anti-business policies has been a bust. The Chamber in the runup to 2020 made the unusual decision to alter its voting scorecard to endorse 23 House freshman Democrats for re-election. The theory was that Democrats were likely to control Congress.

CFO News Room

Political debate is at the core of the First Amendment, but too often politicians seek to regulate it for election campaigns. At the federal level, the Justices have been active in striking down overweening regulations on political expression. For the latest, see this year’s ruling in Federal Election Commission v. Ted Cruz. But fewer skeptical eyes are on the 50 states, which is why it’s worth spending a few minutes to read a new report from the Institute for Free Speech.
