Editor’s picks of the week

  1. “Mirror-tocracy” or meritocracy? Silicon Valley remains in the spotlight.
  2. Gender equality is an economic issue, says Justin Trudeau at Women of the World Summit.
  3. Venture capitalists and private equity are missing out on big gains because of their blind spots.
  4. What a difference a decade makes. In 2007, the most popular stock image of a woman was one who was naked under a towel. This year, the most popular photo from Getty Images was of a woman hiking alone in the Banff National Park.
  5. How our tolerance for investment risk relates to our aspirations. Taking on too little risk could mean poverty in retirement; taking on too much could mean the same.
