It is a truth universally acknowledged by business executives, Wall Street analysts, and investors the world over that cash is the lifeblood of an enterprise. Free cash flow is a critical business performance metric. It’s how we measure successful investment and execution, how profit is distributed to shareholders, and how employees get paid. Without cash, a company folds. Irrespective of their size, shape, or footprint, businesses are on a continuous hunt for cash. At the same time, as the broader corporate goals are broken down into separate key performance indicators (KPIs), the primacy of optimizing organizational cash can get lost. In other words, the metrics provide no insight into how actions taken in one part of the business affect cash generated or held elsewhere.

Christopher Woody, provided by Published 3:33 pm, Thursday, June 14, 2018 REUTERS/Parwiz US-led counterdrug efforts have failed to stem the tide of heroin flowing out of Afghanistan. Cultivation has increased, but a number of factors outside of those failed efforts have led to that increase. But the vast majority of opiates produced in Afghanistan don't reach the US. In 15 years in Afghanistan, no counternarcotics effort undertaken by the US, it partners, or the Afghan government has led to sustained reductions in poppy cultivation or opium production. That was one of a number of findings of a Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Report issued this week, underlining insufficient, uncoordinated, and at-times counterproductive initatives in Afghanistan to reduce drug production there.

THE TICKER Trump arrives on Air Force One at South Bend International Airport en route to a rally on Thursday. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster) With as little as a week remaining to strike a deal on a retooled North American Free Trade Agreement, negotiators from the U.S., Canada and Mexico have a lot of work left to complete and not much time to do it. But a bigger unknown looms: What will President Trump do? Failure by the negotiators could simply mean the 24-year-old pact remains on the books unchanged. Either way, though, Trump retains the option of moving unilaterally to pull the U.S. out of the deal — and he’s directed a drumbeat of hostile rhetoric toward Mexico that suggests it's a real possibility, including on the stump in Indiana last night. (The specter of Trump quitting the pact is serious enough that Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) is warning the president against it in a Wall Street Journal op-ed, writing, "Pulling out of Nafta by executive fiat would be … [Read more...] about The Finance 202: Trump is running out of time on NAFTA
