A of 'The Silo Effect The Peril of Expertise and the Promise of Breaking Down Barriers'. On the surface... studying the wedding customs of couples in a goat herding village Tajikistan doesn't sound like the best training ground for a career in financial journalism. But Gillian Tett will tell you her background as an anthropologist helps her look at financial markets with a unique perspective Tett is the US managing editor and columnist at the Financial Times and one of the world's most and respected financial commentators. She says her unusual background helps her look at the big picture, such as the fact that too often corporations and organizations operate in silos, with the left hand not knowing what the right is Doing. She's written a book about the phenomenon called The Silo Effect The Peril of Expertise and the Promise of Breaking Down Barriers. Gillian Tett was also one of the very few experts who predicted the financial crisis in 2008.

Auckland Property Market Showing Signs of Slowing
Auckland's sky high property market is showing signs of plateauing, with prices looking static for the second month in a row. The December figures from the city's biggest Real Estate agency, Barfoot and Thompson, back up other measures that show the number of houses being sold is falling and that prices are not rising. The company's director, Peter Thompson, says that's partly because of a new rule that requires buyers and sellers of properties to supply a New Zealand IRD number. But he's not ready to use the word "plateau"

Russell Packer Lawyer
A lawyer says a convicted New Zealand rugby league player has been allowed to stay in Australia because he is popular and well connected. Australia's Immigration Minister Peter Dutton stepped in late last year to confirm New Zealander Russell Packer would not be deported after he signed a two-year deal with the St George Illawarra Dragons at the NRL. Packer has served 12 months in jail for a drunken attack in Sydney in which he repeatedly punched and stomped on his New Zealand victim. Neither Packer nor his lawyer are commenting and the local Liberal MP did not return RNZ's call. Lawyer Greg Barns, who represents some New Zealand detainees, says its unfair. [tregions]

The union says an employee has been suspended without pay after he videoed workers being refused entry to work because they were wearing union t-shirts, then posted it on Facebook.

Lessons Can Be Learned From The Demise of Dick Smith
A fund manager says lessons can be learned from the demise of Dick Smith, which he describes as 'the greatest private-equity heisst of all time'. The electronics retailer was placed in receivership yesterday after its banks refused to give it more money, and a sale is now likely. The chief investment officer at the Sydney-based Forager Funds, Steve Johnson, says investors should have been more wary of buying into the company, given it was bought for just 20 million and sold for 520 million nine months later.
