Subject: Papers for E4B

Hi Walter,

I wanted to followup on our Zoom call a couple weeks ago. We discussed that you might be able to make suggestions for academic papers that could be condensed into user-friendly summaries. We have a stable of students ready to start on summarization and I’m reaching back out to our professors to ask for paper recommendations. Can you suggest papers that might be relevant to a business audience? Topics such as business ethics, Austrian business cycle theory, capital allocation, consumer sovereignty, and entrepreneurship would be ideal. If you have a link or pdf for the paper that would be very helpful but if not just the title and author will do. Thank you again for volunteering to help!

Best,

Wesley

Dear Wesley:

You want me to send you papers on:

business ethics, Austrian business cycle theory, capital allocation, consumer sovereignty, and entrepreneurship?

Ones that I’ve published, or others, or both?

Best regards,

Walter

Hi Walter,

Your papers would be great but the author isn’t as important as the topic being relevant to a business audience. We’re trying to bridge the connection between academia and practical application by taking dense papers written for the academic audience and distilling it into palatable language for businessmen. Thank you!
