US Mortgage Lending Helping Boost Real Estate Investment Says AAA

Real estate investment in the US is benefiting from the efforts of the government to boost mortgage lending, which in turn is boosting the economy, according to Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA).

Boston, MA, October 18, 2011 - Real estate investment in the US is benefiting from the efforts of the government to boost mortgage lending, which in turn is boosting the economy, according to Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA).

AAA’s comments follow the publication of new figures showing that real estate investment in New York has overtaken London as the biggest market. As the demand for alternative investments increases as a result of the unstable stock markets, the number of people looking to put their money in the safer asset of real estate has risen and the US market is extremely popular.

As more and more investors understand the importance of the biggest and best real estate, they are opting to put their cash in the big cities, such as New York, Boston, Chicago and Atlanta. New York has taken the number-one spot for real estate investment, which was formerly held by London, which has suffered as a result of less lending from banks in the UK, claims AAA.

The alternative investment advocacy group’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson, said, “It’s not too surprising that New York and the US market in general is feeling the benefits of the US government’s efforts to boost the property market through helping banks to continue to offer mortgages.”

He added, “Real estate is still seen as an attractive option for those looking to diversify their portfolios to risk.” The stock markets have been particularly volatile in recent months and investors are losing large sums of cash overnight as a result. Providing the US economy continues to slowly recover, the real estate markets looks promising. Other options for keen alternative investors include forestry, through firms like Greenwood Management, and private equity investment.

Total investment in the New York area real estate sector in the 12 months to August this year increased by an impressive 166 per cent to $29.7 billion. The figures were compiled by real estate experts, Cushman & Wakefield.

The Enemy of Innovation? Expertise, Says "Best Practices Are Stupid" Author Stephen Shapiro

People tend to think an expert is the be-all and end-all - the A-to-Z on an important subject. But that's not true when it comes to innovation, says writer and innovation leader Stephen Shapiro, author of "Best Practices Are Stupid". Expertise can actually keep business leaders from that one great idea that will push them to the top.

Boston, MA, October 16, 2011 (Straight Line PR) -- The idea of expertise brings to mind a tub filled with everything one needs to know about a subject. The expert on dish washing soap seemingly knows everything there is to know about dish washing soap. But what Stephen Shapiro shows in his latest book, Best Practices Are Stupid, is that expertise is the enemy of innovation. Why? Because expertise assumes it knows everything there is to know about a subject, when in fact it's one good "idea-merge" away from true brilliance.

"The more you know about a particular topic, the more difficult it is for you to think about it in a different way," says Shapiro. "If you want breakthroughs, you need to bring together people from a wide range of disciplines, backgrounds, and experiences."

This isn't just a theory. In his new book, Best Practices Are Stupid ( http://amzn.to/BestPracticesAreStupid ), Shapiro points to research by Lee Fleming, a Harvard Business School professor who discovered that multidisciplinary work is "frequently superior to the best innovations achieved by conventional approaches". Interestingly, Fleming's research showed that:

* Similar background teams equaled great successes, yet few breakthroughs.

* Cross-disciplinary teams equaled higher failure rate, yet radical innovations with potential to create incredible value.

The question Shapiro poses is whether there's a way to get the benefits associated with diversity without any of the undesirable effects. He answers, "Yes" - and says the key is "open innovation".

"Open innovation is all about engaging people outside of your organization to help solve challenges," says Shapiro (sign up for his monthly Free Innovation Tips at http://www.steveshapiro.com/contact/ ). "It's like when Netflix went outside itself to find a way to improve video recommendation by 10 percent. Or when a solution was found to help in the cleanup of the [oil spilled by the] Exxon Valdez tanker. We must choose open innovation over expertise. It's simply the way to go."

Stephen Shapiro's most recent book, Best Practices Are Stupid discusses the phenomenon of Open Innovation and other paradigm-breaking ideas, and can be found on Amazon.com at http://amzn.to/BestPracticesAreStupid
