Spend Matters Afternoon Coffee

MetalMiner exclusive piece from Nucor CEO Dan DiMicco.

MetalMiner Op-ed: New Policies Needed For Today's Manufacturing Economy -- America is known as the Land of Opportunity. However, for the 26 million Americans currently unemployed or underemployed, the Land of Opportunity seems like an illusion. This is the worst economy since the Great Depression. However, the response from our political leaders has fallen far short of what is needed to overcome this crisis.

NYT gets slightly critical of Oracle. Do you agree?

Oracle Growth Plans Worry Rivals and Customers -- Oracle's annual takeover of San Francisco pales against its larger ambitions -- to supply just about all the technology, software and hardware, that businesses might need. This sweeping agenda has rattled the nerves of customers, who fear that Oracle has its own best interests, not theirs, at heart. The worry is that instead of saving money, customers will end up paying more over the long term, and that Oracle, already known for its aggressive tactics, will use its strong position in software to gain even more leverage over a larger array of products.

LAST DAY to take the Spend Matters Oracle survey.

Oracle Procurement Quick Survey/Spend Matters Video: We Need Your Participation! -- the more responses we have, the more analysis Jason can provide.

Happy first day of autumn, everyone!
