  • A man of native intelligence and shrewdness, and of good business training. Doctor Charles Harley Cleaveland might have rendered signal service had he not proved tactless and turbulent and disposed to controversialism.

  • Our new insight is on the interaction between relative labor turnover dynamics and lack of insurers’ premium flexibility. A related possibility is that high labor turnover may be preferred by some employers, especially small firms that employ homogenous workers with low job-specific human capital.
