Many studies have examined the costs and benefits of net metering for both utilities and solar-owning customers, and their conclusions vary widely. A study carried out for the Nevada Public Utilities Commission found that net metering for systems installed between 2004 and 2016 would provide a benefit to non-solar owners of $36 million over the life of the systems. Others, however, have calculated that rooftop solar increases costs to the grid that surpass the value of the power. Responding to the Nevada decision, Severin Borenstein, a professor at the University of California at Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, wrote that “net metering is an inefficient and opaque way to support the growth of low-greenhouse-gas technologies, and should be replaced with more direct and transparent subsidies.”

How do we create the business school and managers of the future? This challenging question has been addressed by a number of researchers in recent times from the perspective of 'what needs to be changed?' - few if any have provided much in the way of 'how do we change things to meet the challenges of the future?'. Rethinking Business Schools draws upon extensive case study evidence from both Russell Group and Non-Russell Group University Business Schools in the UK to answer some of these questions from a European perspective and stimulate a wider debate between university leaders, business leaders and potential students as to what the business school of the future should really look like and the performance outcomes it should provide as we move through the twenty-first century and beyond.

...El texto refleja la humildad, la categoría humana y la preparación profesional del único entrenador de la historia del fútbol que posee todos los grandes títulos posibles tanto a nivel de club como de selección. Una lección de deporte y vida del hombre que –junto a Luis Aragonés– dirigió a España en la mejor época de su historia hasta conquistar con la selección un Mundial y una Eurocopa para convertirla en la única que ha conseguido la Triple Corona, la obtención de tres grandes títulos consecutivos. Con la misma serenidad que asimiló las grandes victorias encajó posteriormente su mayor derrota: la eliminación a las primeras de cambio de la mejor selección española de todos los tiempos y una de las mejores de la historia en el Mundial en el defendía su corona.

At the IB Heads World Conference in The Hague, I talked to Peter Senge, the renowned expert on systems, business management and learning, and senior lecturer at MIT. His bestselling book, The Fifth Discipline: The Art and Practice of The Learning Organization, teaches companies how to be smarter by fostering aspiration, developing reflective conversation and understanding complexity. In the interview that follows, he discusses the differences between learning systems in business and education, and why he thinks right now we are having an “Education Renaissance.” He also offers summaries of his innovative educational systems and some successful learning strategies for the 21st century, such as abandoning monolithic tests and requirements, recognizing that there are many different types of learners,..
