Neither here nor there
It's Harvard Business School case study week in the latest New Yorker. In a profile of Scott Boras, Ben McGrath writes that the signing of Alex Rodriguez's $250 million, 10-year contract with the Rangers became "a case study at the Harvard Business School. (Under the heading: 'Rodriguez and Revenue'..." Ryan Lizza, meanwhile, notes in his profile of Mitt Romney that Harvard BS teaches a case study on how Romney turned around the scandal-mired Salt Lake City 2002 Winter Olympics. The coincidence shouldn't be a total surprise considering both Boras and Romney are both rich and successful business men (And what is HBS about if not getting rich?).
