Behind the decline of the world’s oldest ad agency J. Walter Thompson

  • J. Walter Thompson was the world’s oldest ad agency, but revenue at the largest office in New York is now a fraction of its peak.
  • The JWT name disappeared in a merger in 2018, marking an end to an agency that produced timeless campaigns for clients like Kraft and Kellogg’s, and is about to move out of its longtime New York headquarters.
  • JWT suffered from a faltering digital transformation, financial pressure at the holding company level, and a lawsuit accusing its former CEO of sexism and racism that scared potential clients and hires away.
  • Today, JWT stands as a cautionary tale and reflection of an industry shaken by changes in consumer behavior and the rise of Facebook and Google.

Elon Musk is now tied with Bill Gates as world’s second richest man

By Michelle Toh | CNN Business

Elon Musk’s rocket-like climb up the ranking of the world’s richest men continues.

The Tesla CEO’s net worth soared on Monday as shares of his electric automaker hit a record high, boosting his net worth to $127.9 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires index, which tracks the world’s 500 wealthiest people.

For a couple of hours that put him slightly above Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft and world’s second-richest person, who was estimated to be worth $127.7 billion. The latest readout from the Bloomberg index has the men tied on $128 billion each.

Musk’s fortunes are directly linked to those of Tesla. His biggest asset is the company’s stock, of which he last owned about 20%, according to Bloomberg.

This year has been very good for the entrepreneur. So far in 2020, Tesla’s stock has shot up almost 524%, helping Musk add more

Elon Musk overtakes Bill Gates to become world’s second richest person behind Jeff Bezos

Elon Musk has passed Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates to become the world’s second richest person, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. The Tesla CEO’s net worth now sits at around $128 billion, after increasing by $100 billion this year. There is a sizable gap between Musk and the number one spot, which is currently held by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos who has a reported net worth of around $182 billion. In January, Musk ranked 35th on the list, Bloomberg reports.

For an idea of how the wealth of these men compares to the average American household, check out this amazing data visualization produced earlier this year in which every pixel represents $1,000.

Musk’s rapid ascent up the list has mainly been driven by Tesla’s share price. The car company currently has a market cap of almost $500 billion, after starting the year at under $100 billion. The Guardian reports that

World’s Largest Free-Trade Pact Inspiration for Global Recovery

After four long years of diminished prospects, stagnation, and divisive geopolitics, four summits could show the way toward a better future.

Recently, Moscow hosted the 12th BRICS Summit. Malaysia is hosting the APEC Summit. And Riyadh will welcome the world leaders into the highly-anticipated G20 conference.

Importantly, these high-level events followed the signing of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), the world’s largest free-trade pact, which could help build multiple new paths toward a shared future.

The global economy is expected to shrink by 5 percent in 2020. World trade is likely to plummet by 20 percent. After misguided trade wars and the pandemic, global cooperation across all differences is vital to defeat the pandemic and facilitate economic recovery.

World’s largest free-trade pact, to act as inspiration

In the ASEAN Summit last weekend, after nearly a decade of talks, 15 countries signed the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP).

The Cerebras CS-1 chip, which contains 1.2 trillion transistors, performed 200-times faster than a supercomputer when simulating combustion within a powerplant.

The 462 cm2 chip proved so powerful in analysing over a million variables – from fluctuating temperatures to 3D air movement – that it was able to show what would happen faster than real-time.

Developed in partnership with the US Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory, the Cerebras CS-1 is described as “the world’s most powerful AI compute system”. The number of transistors is 22-times that of the recently announced Nvidia A100 80GB chip, designed for state-of-the-art supercomputers.
