Chicago Tribune: World Cup's 'lost productivity'- How do you measure it?
"'Today people can make that work up,' one local chief executive told me Tuesday, suggesting we not take these dire productivity impact forecasts too seriously when I pulled him away from his own work for a few minutes on the phone. 'Does it really have a huge impact on productivity? Probably in the long run, it doesn't. Certainly, it's a blip, like a big storm will slow the city down. There is some loss, but it can be made up.'"
The name of that CEO? John Challenger of Challenger, Gray & Christmas." - Phil Rosenthal, Chicago Tribune
