  • Military recruits still not using American-made sneakers

    New Balance thinks the U.S. military is dragging its feet. Last April, the Department of Defense announced military recruits would start using athletic shoes 100 percent made and manufactured in America, in recognition of a law Congress passed in 1941 requiring the department give preference to American-made goods. Matthew LeBretton, New Balance's vice president of public affairs, is convinced the delays are deliberate "payback" for companies like New Balance that have been vocally lobbying for the change for years.

  • The case for Greece: when it forgave Germany's debt

    The International Monetary Fund certainly thinks so, according to a new report in which it argues Greece should get help. After the hell of World War II, the Federal Republic of Germany — commonly known as West Germany — got massive help with its debt from former foes. The 1953 agreement, in which Greece and about 20 other countries effectively wrote off a large chunk of Germany's loans and restructured the rest, is a landmark case that shows how effective debt relief can be.
