GM doubles marketing investment in GMC
The Wall Street Journal
General Motors Co. is giving the GMC brand its first major makeover in 15 years. The automaker is launching a new GMC advertising campaign beginning with a 60-second TV spot on ABC.

Opinion: CFPB proves its critics right
Bloomberg
Dealers help consumers arrange loans with financial companies. That's a pretty fundamental aspect of how they do business. Yet the federal government, through the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is trying to put a stop to it. When Dodd-Frank was being debated in Congress, critics warned that the CFPB would have little accountability and would therefore be inclined to overreach. On this issue, the agency seems determined to prove that fear right.

1 trick to getting what you want when you negotiate
TIME
Conventional wisdom says that, in negotiations, it’s better to offer the other party a firm number rather than a range.

New research finds that people who offer a range actually do give themselves a better chance at getting the number they really want — but you have to do it the right way.
