Does anyone know what can be done for erroneous negative reviews on health grades or similar websites? There’s a patient who wrote a review about me and I checked months worth of notes - I never saw this patient. She cited a virtual visit that we don’t do at the office and said the appointment was at a time I wasn’t at the office. Not sure why they wrote the review but I wish it could be removed because I’m worried it will affect my future career prospects. Thanks!

Super Hypothetical and narrow question: All else equal, would you vote for the other party if the parties swapped or flipped their position on taxes. So if you’re a Republican and all the sudden Republicans wanted to raise taxes on those making over 400k and everything else, would you vote for a dem? If you’re a Democrat would you vote for a Republican, just because now they’re raising taxes, etc?

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
