Imagine June: the smell of freshly cut grass, barbecue … and higher interest rates? More on that. Plus, a sex discrimination suit in Silicon Valley involving the venture-capital firm Kleiner Perkins opens another window on complaints that women are treated unequally in the tech world. Also, we talk Allan Sloan at the Washington Post about two companies that recently merged with inverted companies after failing to invert themselves.
