Yeah, the economy is great, but don't you find yourself buying a little less ... Prada. http://bizj.us/1fmxy1
Prada is bagging fewer profits, as sales decline in China and Europe.

The most dangerous part of the plane ride is probably sitting right net to you. http://bizj.us/1h25sx
The real danger of flying does not come from those oversized shampoo bottles the TSA has been charged with confiscating.

Introduction

Al Lewis is editor in chief of The South Florida Business Journal.

He was formerly a columnist for The Wall Street Journal Sunday and MarketWatch, offering an unconventional perspective on the business headlines of the day.

He also blogged at tellittoal.com and made frequent media appearances, discussing business trends and developments. He often appeared on Fox Business and discussed his column on Denver’s 9News, KUSA-TV on Sunday mornings.

As a business journalist he has frequently detailed the follies of big business and conventional thought regarding the market and the economy. He is an advocate for entrepreneurship, small business and big business doing things the right way. He often presents a humorous or counter-intuitive point-of-view and strives to capture the human drama as it unfolds in the business arena. 

Lewis has worked as either a financial writer or editor since 1985. Over the years, he has won several awards, including honors from the Associated Press, the Society of Professional Journalists, the Colorado Press Association and the Society of American Business Editors and Writers. 

“Lewis shows that business writing can be fun and interesting as well as informative”, a panel of SABEW judges once wrote. “The writing is clever, witty and visual. He has the tempo and timing of a good comedian.”

Lewis, who grew up in Northbrook, Ill., earned a master’s degree in public affairs reporting from the University of Illinois at Springfield and a bachelor’s degree in journalism and political science from MacMurray College in Jacksonville, Ill.
