Episode 82: ISM Report on Business for July 2015 & Prof Sanford on Dodd-Frank

Business adviser analyzing financial figures denoting the progress in the work of the company

Brad Holcomb, Committee Chair of the Institute for Supply Management’s Manufacturing Report on Business puts into context the ISM’s Purchasing Managers Index number for July 2015.

Although the substantial majority of the provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act apply to public companies, many small and mid-sized companies are also implementing similar controls because their investors or executives demand it.

Prof. Sanford provides insights as to why the average whistle-blower might blow the whistle and strategic steps that should be considered when one stumbles upon the tip of the iceberg or the entire iceberg. Small and medium-sized businesses must appreciate the closer scrutiny that will be brought on by whistle-blowers, particularly regarding FCPA matters. Whether you are on the manufacturing floor, a supply chain professional, in receiving, or a corporate executive, doing the right thing is the right thing to do.

Prof. Sanford on Dodd-Frank starts around 32:00
