So lying at work is not necessarily as cut-and-dried as people think. While there is a lot of "creativity" around the truth, the irony is that in today's wired society, the consequences of being caught in a lie have never been more severe.

Ben Hanuka

More than a mere few US retailers assume that expanding into Canada, because of its relatively small population (the population of California alone, at about 38 million, is larger than Canada's roughly 35 million), is akin to expanding into just another state. Making this assumption -- blindsided by the admittedly vast similarities across all walks of life -- is downright dangerous.
