working mom in a TV ad will more often than not have "a power suit on and a briefcase and shes running out the door like a harried messits just very cliché" Wintsch says Getty Images recently teamed up with Sheryl Sandbergs Lean In foundation to push back against these clichés replacing stagey tired stock photography with warmer images depicting scenes like "Mother with baby in lap working on laptop at home": shes tattooed the room looks like a real living space and neither character looks frazzled or upset Its a far cry from the usual clip-art-like pictures of moms looking panicked as they juggle Blackberries and sandwiches Topping a story with these photos may not scream "feminism" but it does improve how women are seen throughout the media GE is not alone in latching onto the current trendiness of soft-core feminismbrands like CoverGirl and GoldieBlox have recently put out well-received empowering spots But unlike GE those brands products are specifically for girls and women so their logic is clear GEs motivations are a bit more complicated What does the company stand to gain by showcasing working mothersand why involve daughters In large part its a reflection of the changing workforce "Just in the past year or so" says Kelley Skoloda a partner at the marketing firm Ketchum "youve heard a lot about how the economic recession has hit men more than women and women are becoming breadwinners I think women working and earning as much as or more than their male counterparts is clearly here to stay and marketers are starting to see that" Tech companies like GE strive to show that what they make benefits families Just think of Apples "Misunderstood" ad in which a wallflower of a boy seems to ignore his family on his iPhone throughout the holiday until he reveals hes been taping them all along for a sweetly nostalgic home video Technology has received a bad rap for pulling families apart so Skoloda says it benefits tech companies to show ways in which it can pull them together as it seems to in GEs ad The companies show empathy Wintsch says in the hopes that the empathy will earn moms loyalty The same strategy is at play in a current ad by Firestone aptly titled "Working Mom": a mother packs her toolbox chainsaw and ax into the bed of her pickup truck at dawn then tenderly rouses her kids from sleep and carries them to the back seat "For some people" the narrator tells us as she drives off "it doesnt matter who works on their car But for some it couldnt matter more" The Second Sex these ads are not But they do mark a departure

physicist and eight-term Democratic member of Congresshas been named the new CEO of AAAS(which publishes ScienceInsider) He will succeed Alan Leshner a neuroscientist who is stepping down this winter after leading AAAS since 2001 Holt 66 has represented a New Jersey district since 1999 but in February announced he would not seek another term Although not known for sponsoring legislation Holt has earned kudos from both Republican and Democrat colleagues for being an effective behind-the-scenes advocate for additional funding for research and science education He was part of an unofficial bipartisan “physics caucus” in Congress that at its peak totaled three members who held physics PhDs Holt has a long political pedigree His father was a US senator from West Virginia in the 1930s and his mother was West Virginia’s secretary of state He was elected to Congress in 1998 after spending a decade at the Department of Energy’s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory A former physics teacher at Swarthmore College he credits the long-running AAAS Science and Technology Fellowship program which allowed him to spend a year on Capitol Hill for piquing his interest in politics “I will continue to work on trying to bring more scientific thinking to public policy and to American society in general” he told ScienceInsider after announcing his retirement from Congress “Those are ongoing interests of mine I think it’s important to maintain freedom of inquiry and to make sure that we have support not just for research but also for scientific communication” Holt was a vocal—but often lone—advocate in Congress for reviving the Office of Technology Assessment a well-regarded in-house think tank for legislators that Congress abolished when Republicans took control in 1995 He admitted that it was an uphill battle but felt the fight was worth waging “I would say that most members of Congress value science and respect scientists” he told ScienceInsider in February “But I don’t see more scientific thinking evidence-based critical thinking” This fall Holt made an eloquent pitch for the importance of science to society whenthe American Academy of Arts & Sciences rolled out a reporturging the government to commit to steady long-term increases in research funding He began by asking Americans “to banish the pessimism that is dominating our public policy on this issue and so many others” Then he sketched a picture of where the country is and where he thinks it needs to be “Why hasn’t Congress paid more attention to the critical point we’ve reached I’m not sure But it may be because we’ve taken it for granted that America’s leadership will continue as it has for a couple of centuries The sky seemed to be the limit for what we could do And after the Apollo flights we even broke through the sky “This success has continued in some respects enough to make some members of Congress complacent But if you look at transportation energy and every other sectors the transformative breakthroughs that we thought we were heading toward 20 or 30 years ago have not materialized “What we need at this point is a return to America’s traditional optimism I don’t mean empty technological optimism that technology will solve all of our social problems But I do mean optimism that we can increase economic opportunity and personal growth and create jobs and grow to overcome our short-term problems That’s what we have always done” Leshner who was a senior administrator at the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation before coming to AAAS said that “Rush Holt is an ideal choice to lead AAAS and Science into the future His expertise experience and commitment to science and to public service are sure to greatly enhance the association’s impact in all domains” The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) founded in 1848 is the world’s largest general scientific society and publisher of the journal Science as well as Science Translational Medicine and Science SignalingWelcome to the TIME Subscriber Q&A with Rana Foroohar TIMEs assistant managing editor in charge of economics and business She has written this weeks cover story on General Motors CEO Mary Barra To read the full post you need to be a subscriber Its not too late to sign up here DonQuixotic asks Rana what are your thoughts on the current tech bubble and overvaluing of tech companies Are we inevitably headed towards another tech market crash similar to the dot-com bubble of the early 2000’s Is there anything we can do to mitigate the damage or prevent it I think tech stocks are definitely over-valued; aside from commercial real estate and certain lower grade corporate bonds they are probably the frothiest part of the market right now The model of many Silicon Valley consumer oriented firms is to spend as much money grabbing as much market share as possible the idea being that theyll figure out how to make money later I think a fair number of them wont (although there will still be some big winners in each category) The problem is that when you bet on tech particularly in the early portion of a new business cycle its hard to pick the winners thats why Warren Buffett tells me he rarely bets on tech In terms of mitigating damage Id stay indexed in a diverse mix of big US firms dont focus in too much on one sector nflfoghorn asks If the economy is much better and unemployment – if not more prevalent – has held steady why do so many people think the president is doing a poor job handling it especially since we went through a severe recession Its a great question and as I write in my column this week I think the answer is that people dont feel like we are in a recovery because only a fraction of the middle class jobs have come back (most job creation in this recovery has been in the low pay or very high pay sectors there still arent enough jobs in the middle which is where most Americans are) Until middle class job creation is more robust and income starts to rise I expect poll numbers will stay low nflfoghorn asks Hello Rana – What do you think Mrs Barra’s impact has been on GM’s culture Has she been able to put her stamp on a company notorious for doing things on the cheap and endangering lives What do her peers at Ford Chrysler/Fiat etal think of her leadership As youll read in this weeks TIME cover reviews on Marys handling of the crisis have been good but reviews about her overall management style are mixed some folks that I really respect like Bob Lutz think she may not be able to be confrontational enough to change GM Others say she has an iron fist in a velvet glove My own sense is that shes slowly but surely making changes but that in a company this size its going to be a multi-year process and shell need to bring in disruptors from the outside as well if shes going to effect real change deconstructiva asks Rana what’s your take on raising the minimum wage I think it should be raised if only for two reasons – (1) It never kept pace with inflation else it could in the 20’s or least much higher (2) With current minimum wage many people at that level who are raising families have to rely on govt assistance like food stamps and I think no one working full time should ever have to rely on food stamps Its interesting that people who are against raising the minimum wage often dont address the fact that in many states average hourly wages are already way above the national minimum and it doesnt destroy jobs (the common argument of those against a national raise) My feeling is that we could and should raise the minimum wage but that we have to do many other things at the same time most importantly revamp K-12 education and make sure educators are better connected with job creators to make sure that higher wages dont result in job losses to other countries or to technology yogi asks RF do you think the recent changes to corporate tax rules will stem the tide of corporate inversions If not do you know of a potential better way or will it simply take customers turning away from the companies that invert to cause others not to I think the Treasurys new rules are a good start in large part because they lay down a political market its not OK for US firms that have benefitted from US taxpayer investment (in the form of education infrastructure state R & D etc) to eschew paying their fair share of taxes That said we need to go a lot farther as I wrote in this column on tax inversions we should also rethink and revamp our tax code and stop rewarding the use of debt over equity which is often what fuels these deals DonQuixotic asks Rana how damaging will collapse of China’s housing market be to the global economy Once it’s come and gone how long will it take China to recover and what impacts do you believe it will have on the global market and global trade once they do How do you think it will reshape it Fascinating question and probably the most important question in the global economy today China is already suffering a major economic slow down The government says the economy is growing around 7 %; I think its more like 4 % Either way its clear that theres a crisis in middle class job creation there are more unemployed college grads in China than lower end workers All this connects to the real estate bubble; until China revamps an economy built on cheap labor and cheap capital its growth will remain muted which is one reason the global economy isnt growing faster This isnt a Lehman type situation Chinas banking sector has a lot of bad real estate loans on the books but its a closed mostly government run system so the bad debt itself wont necessarily ricochet around the globe But if unemployment grows it could cause social unrest and if the government were to be destabilized that would be a major shock to the global economy Right now the Chinese leadership is trying to consolidate power and (hopefully) launch a new series of economic reforms Hopefully this will happen But even if it does were looking at a transition that will take a decade or more Chinese double-digit growth is definitely a thing of the past deconstructiva asks Rana where do you think the next big global currency crisis will come from Europe grabbed most of the attention in recent years but might someone take their turn next We remember the big Asian currency woes in past years and Russia’s default in the 90’s caused chaos …and that infamous LTCM fund back then held a LOT of Russian debt only we didn’t know that until THEY crashed and burned Indeed might the next big currency crisis involve rogue trading and speculation as much if not more than said future country’s own economic woes Great question I dont think the European debt crisis is over we could still see defaults flair up But the issue Im most worried about right now is the assumption that the dollar will stay strong forever For starters a stronger dollar isnt an unadulterated good it acts as a kind of dampener on credit and lending in the global economy since so much business is done in dollars (and right now you could argue we need more lending in certain sectors) But also its based on the assumption that the US markets and economy will remain strong (or at least stronger than many other parts of the world) indefinitely As interest rates rise probably in the second half of next year you could see a lot of volatility as the tide of easy money goes out and we see who has been swimming without their shorts PaulDirks asksYou recently wrote “When the majority of people dont have more money they cant spend more and companies cant create more jobs higher up the food chain” But isn’t this a classic prisoners dilemma for managers Every company is doing it’s best to hold it’s own costs down but no one can unilaterally raise wages without their competitors undercutting them on price That’s why a minimum wage adjustment makes sense It lowers all boats slightly but it breaks the logjam that holds everyone back What will it take before the USCOC types actually understand that it’s in their own interest to do something about wages Youve summed up the problem well As I say in one of the answers above I dont think a minimum wage hike would hurt growth but I also dont see the political will to push it through in the next couple of years since were heading into an election cycle Whats interesting is that some enlightened companies are actually trying to create higher wage workers (which they correctly realize are their future employees and customers) themselves IBM for example has started a series of high schools to churn out kids who can walk straight into 50K a year jobs See my cover on that here Sue_asks Rana in your story on the 3% economy (which was very good btw) you mention student loans/debt as the next crisis point As a parent with one child in college and another going next year I have a very personal interest in this issue My daughters are going to graduate college with mortgage-level debt hanging over their heads And not just my daughters but an entire generation of students This is going to have far-reaching effects on the economy just for example home-buying and potential small-business startups Who can do either when they’ve already got such a daunting debt load It also impacts parents who want to help their kids pay off (or at least down) some of that debt We put off things like trips new car purchases home renovations (or buying new homes for ourselves) to help the kids My question has two parts 1) What needs to be done to fix this problem I know Sen Warren has some ideas but what other options are there 2) What are the chances that anything will get done Is there any widespread sense that this is a problem and that it needs to get fixed As the mother of two kids myself aged 8 and 12 Im also extremely concerned about this I make a good living but am struggling to save the 70K or so each of them will need to attend a private university debt free It boggles the mind to think about how average Americans on a median wage can ever imagine doing this Aside from Senator Warrens ideas which I think are great this is one area where some financial innovation could help One of the major problems with the student loan market is that its fixed and static there are two set rates for loans they are high and they cant be refinanced We should change that (a la Warrens ideas) but we should also encourage more innovation in the student lending market For example Ive spoken to internet entrepreneurs who are creating "crowd funding" type models for student loans where alumnae from individual colleges (who have a better sense of the opportunities and risks associated with various degrees from particular schools) can loan money to graduates themselves at lower rates Theres a company called SoFi thats doing this successfully I also imagine that companies themselves will get more involved in sponsoring talented students paying their way through school in exchange for a set number of years of employment with the firm at the end of a degree One could argue this is a kind of paid indentured servitude But in lieu of more government action (which I would of course like to see) its not a bad option for some students particularly in high pay fields like technology deconstructiva asks Rana we still have chronic long-term unemployment in our recovery so how do you think we should best address that so that everyone – literally – who wants to work can go back to work (As one of those long-term unemployed alas I definitely have interest in fixing this but I digress) The major caveat as we know is that Congress is doing almost nothing on this thanks to the GOP and the Tea Party’s obstruction So given that what can we do I’d rather face the classic economic “problem” of wage inflation from full employment than to face mass unemployment which is a problem in ANY sane economic model A couple of years ago I interviewed Warren Buffett and we talked about this question His view which I share is that in an economy undergoing the kind of structure shifts that ours is we might need to have a stronger welfare state by that I dont mean handouts so much as subsidies for work thats not rewarded properly by the market One good idea Buffett suggested was that the state could subsidize childcare and elder care workers in order to allow more women to rejoin the workforce in other areas That could potentially boost not only employment but also economic growth and the tax take We need to find ways to release human talent and reward people for valuable skills that the market may not properly appreciate as we all know by now markets arent
