  • Banks will pay $8.5B to settle regulators' foreclosure claims
    Ten large banks have agreed to an $8.5 billion settlement with regulators over allegations that they didn't use proper foreclosure processes. Under the agreement, 3.8 million borrowers who were foreclosed on in 2009 or 2010 will be paid a total of $3.3 million. The settlement ends a review of foreclosure files that began in April 2011 -- a process that regulators said was taking too long and not delivering aid to consumers.

  • It's time for leaders to get real
    Leadership should be about facing up to uncomfortable realities, not about burying your head in the sand, writes George Ambler. Only reality-based leadership can inspire employees or bring long-term strategic success. "Convincing ourselves that things are better or different from reality is never a good idea," he writes.
