This site provides fresh, unbiased context on what’s happening in Minnesota’s economy.  Through October 2018, most of these stories were also discussed live with John Hines on WCCO-AM, Mondays at 10:35 a.m. and occasionally on KARE-11 TV. John retired in September and shortly thereafter, so was the segment this content used to support. Since then, stories are still occasionally posted.

The site is produced by Dale Kurschner, a multi-award-winning financial editor and journalist, speaker and on-air commentator.  Dale currently serves as a business analyst and executive consultant helping business owners and leaders communicate during challenging times ranging from turnarounds, crises and reputation attacks to mergers and acquisitions, periods of rapid growth, fundraising/refinancing and major surprises. He does this primarily as consultant with Minnetonka-based Platinum Group.

None of the issues or businesses covered through this site are clients of either Kurschner and Associates or Platinum Group. In the rare instances where one might be, any related content here would clearly state as such.
