Yelp went public this week. Yesterday we looked at it’s local advertising business, which accounts for 70 percent of its revenue.
Recently in Bloomberg Businessweek:

Also: Today on Businessweek.com, a look back at Obama’s year-old effort to cut red tape, and why it isn’t as simple as he makes it sound.
Today on Businessweek.com, a look inside the business of mail order food, an American holiday tradition.
