It isn’t typical for pools to be in the news, so it’s worth taking notice when they are. Although two recent stories are quite different from each other, their common thread is that pool governance was highlighted in a public forum. Given how quickly news spreads in today’s media environment, what happens in one pool can sometimes raise questions in the broader pooling universe – even if borne out of misinterpretation.  Therefore, it’s useful to know when there is news coverage about pool governance or operations and to consider your own pooling practices in light of these media dynamics. A story about pool governance in Iowa was picked up last week ...

In the old economy, job applicants competed for a limited number of positions.
