      Activist Dan Loeb Has Infiltrated Your Can of Campbell's Soup

      Third Point LLC's Dan Loeb has been stirring the pot at Campbell Soup Co. The activist investor wants the full 12-person overhauled and thinks the company is a takeover target, or should at least sell some divisions, like its Pop Secret popcorn and Pepperidge Farms frozen cake brands.

      Tesla's Board is So Bad at its Job, it Failed at the One Thing it Says is Paramount — Protecting CEO Elon Musk
      • Tesla's board has repeatedly made clear that it sees its duty as ensuring that Elon Musk remain in a leadership role at the company — not representing shareholders' interests.
      • But Musk's role at Tesla is now in jeopardy, thanks to charges filed against him by the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with his series of tweets about potentially taking Tesla private.

      Expanding CEO-to-Worker Pay Gap Bad for Business

      Think You Don’t Belong in the Boardroom? Think Again

      For the longest time, a “board” filled my mind with images of older white men wearing suits and sitting around a table making decisions. Unfortunately, the data back up my mental images. This 2016 study by the Alliance for Board Diversity and Deloitte shows that 3.8 percent of Fortune 500 board seats are held by minority women, compared to 69.2 percent by white men. This should be an urgent call for greater diversity in the boardroom...
