Chicago Tribune: World Cup's 'lost productivity'- How do you measure it?

Original Article:

"'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
