Mr. Draymond Green credits Lebron James for inspiring NBA players to start businesses while playing. “Walk into our locker room, you’ll hear more about business than basketball."
Ms. Susan Lyne explains the logic behind BBG Ventures, a fund that backs startups with at least one female founder: "If you look at who the consumers of new technology products are...it's still primarily women."

Schools across the country have flip-flopped between in-person and remote learning — and that instability is taking a toll on students' ability to learn and their mental health.

The big picture: While companies were able to set long timelines for their return, schools — under immense political and social strain — had to rush to figure out how to reopen. The cobbled-together approach has hurt students, parents and teachers alike.

President Trump has not laid out an economic agenda for his second term, despite the election being just eight days away.

Why it matters: This is unprecedented in modern presidential campaigns, and makes it harder for undecided voters to make an informed choice.

Expect President Trump to redouble his efforts loosening regulations and questioning climate-change science should he win reelection next month.

Driving the news: A second Trump administration would supercharge efforts by certain states, countries and companies to address global warming. But some wildcards could have a greener tinge.
