2. Do you want to win some money writing about money? Well, writing fiction about the economy of the future to be more specific. The Economic Security Project is running a speculative fiction contest that can put cash in your pocket. Find out more.

1. Hurricane Harvey devastated southeastern Texas last month, and now Hurricane Irma appears to be heading for Florida. As residents there prepare for the storm, HR professionals can prepare for the issues they’ll face for affected employees before, during and after the storm.
