Women who promote other women, and non-white managers who hire diversity candidates, are subject to worse performance reviews. A new study from the University of Colorado also finds that white men who make the same decisions are rewarded. We look at ways to eliminate this bias against… eliminating bias. Plus, some bond insurers are fighting Detroit’s bankruptcy plan – because they can’t afford the lower bond payments the city will make under the agreement. They not only made a bad bet on Detroit’s debt, they also were hit by other bad investments.
