  • Your Fraud Duty Is What a Jury Thinks It Should Be

    In the legal arena, a practitioner’s duty is informed by professional standards and technical literature, but it is not defined by it. What defines a CPA’s duty in the legal system is a combination of civil law and conventional thought. That is, what a jury is told about the law by a judge, and then how the jurors fit the facts and the law into their own sense of how the world works.
  • Look to Nontraditional Ways to Save on Health Benefit Costs

    The recently announced collaboration on health care between Amazon, JPMorgan Chase & Co., and Berkshire Hathaway Inc. seemingly has grand ambitions, but it has been short on details. There’s no reason to doubt that these business giants could significantly disrupt an industry in dire need of disruption, but how they’ll go about it is a mystery to us on the outside, and very well may be a mystery to them too. However, there is one thing of which I’m sure: As they dig in, they will quickly find that there are fixes already working at highly innovative employers, both small and large.
