Four short links: 27 February 2013

An essential reading to your morning
  1. How the U.K. can turn its debt downgrade around –Don’t be fooled by the market’s non-reaction to the downgrade of the United Kingdom’s debt. The government must give the perception that the country is a safe haven for foreign investors.
  2.  What Business Leaders Can Learn from ‘Generation Mobile’ –  About four years ago, we started hiring high school interns. The idea was to introduce basic software development skills and help create interest in the field. What we didn’t anticipate was how much we’d learn in the process. In many ways, the teachers became the students, and the experience continues to transform the way we view risk, reward — and the user experience.
  3. 14 Things Successful People Do On Weekends – Spencer Rascoff is only 37. Yet, the Harvard grad and father of three has already accomplished so much. He co-founded and served as a VP for Expedia; he held the roles of CFO, vice president of marketing and COO at Zillow; and in 2008, Rascoff was promoted to chief executive of the popular real estate information site.
  4. Fake job offers lure low-income applicants into money laundering – Fraudsters are targeting vulnerable, low-income groups, including students, people on benefits and new entrants to the UK, with job adverts that recruit people to money launder thousands of pounds for criminal gangs abroad.
