A New England shoe chain walked to the top of the Forbes 1989 list of the "200 Best Small Companies in America." Insurers, specialty retailers and restaurants dominated the rankings but California led all states with the most companies on the Forbes list. Boston-based J. Baker, a newcomer to the list, took top honors with the highest return on equity--a five-year average of 100%, Forbes reported in its Nov. 13 issue.

Maybe it's the proposed North American Free Trade Agreement. Or the economic tough times that have forced companies to broaden their marketing horizons. Whatever the reasons, attendance and exhibitors at Thursday's Mexport trade show on Otay Mesa were 50% higher than last year. For the last four years, the annual Mexport show has given San Diego businesses an opportunity to pitch their wares and services to businesses doing business in Mexico.

It clearly pays to be a top officer of one of California's top corporations, but company insiders often get far more than just a salary, perks and lucrative severance arrangements. In many cases, they are involved in other business arrangements with their firms that can pay off in a big way. Often, directors also serve as company consultants and attorneys, bringing home rich fees. Other companies might rent all their office space from insiders.

It was both ironic and a bit sad that environmentalists--shouting "Wall Street kills"--protested outside the New York Stock Exchange on Monday. Because, for one thing, Wall Street loves the environment--it provides fresh merchandise for the securities business, after all. Just last week, a syndicate of the leading brokerage houses--Merrill Lynch, Shearson Lehman, Prudential-Bache, Paine Webber and Dean Witter--brought out a new investment trust devoted to the environment.

A big change is brewing in the ranks of California's fastest-growing companies. The Times Growth 100 list has always been dominated by high-tech enterprises, and 1991 was no exception: About half the companies are in some way part of the computer industry. But a changing of the guard is underway. Computer manufacturers and chip-making companies are suddenly sliding down the Growth 100 list, and software companies are finding their way to the top.

A new system of trash collection for Los Angeles that started last month in the San Fernando Valley and is scheduled to be citywide by 1993 does not go as far as some cities have gone to encourage recycling. The city hopes the system will help it obey a state law requiring a reduction in landfill dumping. According to Mayor Tom Bradley, it puts Los Angeles "on the cutting edge of environmental change."
