Cross Border Drug Trade
Claudia Cornwall

“It drops, flatlines, drops, flatlines,” says Ankur Arora, vice-chair of the International Pharmacy Association of B.C. It’s a graph no business person likes to see: a gut-wrenching slide in revenues. From more than $400 million in 2005, B.C. pharmacies exporting...

BCSC Rules: Trade Secrets
David Baines

Tony Wanless

Some people were highly amused – and many were highly incensed – when I recently compared the real estate industry and its breathless media cheerleaders to the pornography industry. So people get ready, because here it is: Real Estate Pornography 2.0. Tony Wanless

Executive Compensation: Big Bucks
BCBusiness D.B.

Executive payouts break records every year, the wage gap between CEOs and average workers grows constantly more vast, and both the U.S. and Canada are reworking the rules on how companies pay the brass. It’s time to big bucks. Executive compensation has become a tricky beast, laden with elaborate stock schemes whose windfalls make million-dollar salaries look like chump change. It’s all led to confounded directors, irritated shareholders and nervous regulators.

Signing the Executive Stars
Tony Wanless

Despite a common belief among many of these start-ups, it’s not the whiz-bang product or the graphics-laden business plan that attracts capital. It’s a management team that has the experience and ability to execute on the company’s strategy to build...
