By Tim Sanders
From Tim Sander's blog, "Sanders Says": The best way to counter the economy's funk is to create your own oasis of good news: with a sale. This week, you need to add five hours of "money-seeking" time to your schedule. If you sell a service, go back to some old clients and talk about new value-oriented products you've just launched.

Column: Obama Needs to Talk the Talk

By Dick Morris
Published on TheHill.com on Tuesday February 17, 2009 It's rare to criticize a politician for being all action and no talk, but that's one of the big things that's wrong with Obama's battle against the economic crisis. One of the key variants in any stage of the economic cycle is what the president says is happening. If he talks down the economy, it drops. If he is bullish and optimistic, the markets are likely to listen. Particularly early in his term, when his credibility is high and the spotlight ...

By Lindsey Pollak
If you walked around midtown Manhattan during the summer, you might have seen the financial executive, in his late 40s, who paraded around in a sandwich board declaring "Experienced MIT Grad for Hire"; and handing out copies of his resume.
