BU experts on Consumer Reports ratings of MA docs, JPMorgan, Windows Live, & Facebook

SMG_newsBoston University Public Relations’ Professor Voices blog features a sampling of quotes by experts from BU’s School of Management on recent issues impacting the business world:

Magazine begins rating Massachusetts doctors (Associated Press): “People are going to stay with their own physician if they’re happy. They are not going to see these ratings and switch. But if they are looking for a new practice, for people moving into the state, students who are graduating and working in the state, they may be more likely to look at these Consumer Reports ratings.” Roberta Clarke

JPMorgan, the Volker Rule, and the Extreme Brevity of Financial Memor (Huffington Post): “JPMorgan Chase has a big hedge fund inside a commercial bank. They should be taking in deposits and making loans, not taking large speculative bets.” Mark Williams

Goodbye to Windows Live (and Whatever It Meant): (New York Times): “ ‘Windows Live’ — what does it mean? I can’t figure it out. I see no evidence of planning around a brand strategy.” Susan Fournier

Bank regulators under scrutiny in JPMorgan loss (New York Times): “The central question is why Jamie Dimon was able to so successfully convince both its regulators that there was nothing to see at the chief investment office. To me, it suggests that he is too close to his regulators.” Mark Williams

Facebook – lawsuit filed (WCVB): “I think Facebook has to focus on its brand first and foremost because 900 million people use it and they are all following the story.” N. Venkat Venkatraman
