The real reason IPOs are flopping is the lack of startup transparency, some experts say. And they worry that a new SEC rule could make things worse

While Silicon Valley VCs blame Wall Street's dominant role in IPOs, corporate governance experts say rules that allowed startups to withhold more information was a cause of recent flops They cite the impact of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act -- or the JOBS Act -- which allowed startups to file for an IPO confidentially and withhold more information about their financials. They worry that an SEC proposal to open up private markets could make the problem with the lack of transparency wor...

Facebook’s co-founder made a passionate plea to break up the social network, but legal experts say the idea may be dead on arrival (FB, MSFT)

Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes's proposal to break up the company faces serious legal and political hurdles, legal experts say. They say Hughes raised important issues of accountability that could be fixed by reforming Facebook's corporate governance structure, but it's unlikely to go far on its own. In a New York Times op-ed on Thursday, Hughes called for Facebook to be broken up into multiple public companies, and said that the company and CEO Mark Zuckerberg should be regulated more tight...

Dining at all-inclusive resorts

When I was 14 , the food at Club Med was the greatest thing I’d ever seen. Instead of the plates of carefully placed organic spinach salad and tabbouleh I was used to at home, I found endless bowls of spaghetti tossed in beef-filled tomato sauce. I had whole pizzas I could just take. Trays of cookies. A guy who’d cut me all the prime rib I wanted. Seconds? Try ninths. My sister and I would compete to see who could eat more, piling each plate a little higher than the last. If I hadn’t been 14, ...
