It appears per Ms Wallace's comment, that she likes to focus on the half-empty part of the glass. Go figure!

Paula Wallace seems to ignore the most obvious explanation, that Portland is mostly white. Most minorities are pretty well represented per the population diversity.

Why did they include racial stats here? What point are they trying to make?

As the previous poster said, it might just be because the area is mostly white, but still, one has to wonder what the point is of including racial stats in this article.. Why do they feel the need to point out which races are among the best managers & employees?

The United States has one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world.

The New Yorker recently published a sharply worded critique of “disruptive innovation,” one of the most widely cited theories in the business world today. The article raises questions about the descriptive value of disruption and innovation  — whether the terms are mere buzzwords or actually explain today's extraordinarily complex and fast changing business environment. 

Update: We caught up with Portland's Thomas Thurston, who shared his data driven take on the disruption controversy.
