(July 2014) Amazon turns 20, a new app resembles a 16th-century messaging device and an old innovation debate gets a fresh fight.
(June 2014) A mere 20 years ago, not many people would have been able to predict the sheer scale of technology’s impact on the nature of work and the culture of the workplace. Nor would very many mainstream thinkers have forecast the rise of new economic powerhouses, such as China and Brazil. Many business leaders in the early 1990s would have found it difficult to believe that not only would India’s GDP, within a couple of decades, be ranked in the top ten highest among global economies, but that more than half of its workforce would regularly telecommute instead of visiting a conventional place of work. But, as Peter Drucker, the eminent management theorist, once put it, “The only thing we know about the future is that it will be different.”
(June 2014) When asked to name the leading threats to online privacy in the future, 51% of a global panel of consumers picked “businesses using, trading or selling my personal data for financial gain without my knowledge or benefit.” Some 35% selected “lone/crazy hackers, hacker groups or anarchist types” while “my government spying on me” — was cited as a serious privacy threat by only 21%, even following the Edward Snowden leaks that showed the huge surveillance programs of American and UK intelligence agencies.
(June 2014) A new index shows that northern European countries have the most open ICT sectors. The UK is ranked first, followed by the Netherlands and Germany.
(June 2014) The Wall Street Journal reacted to Uber Technologies Inc.'s "whopping valuation of $18.2bn" in a financing round that was reported Friday as "a bet by some of the world's top investors that the car-hailing smartphone app can grow by expanding world-wide and branching into new arenas, like logistics." However, Andrew Ross Sorkin of The New York Times says "here’s another way to think about Uber’s whopping valuation: It is still too low."
(May 2014) Emerging-market stocks on Tuesday headed for the highest level in almost six months as exit polls in India helped push the nation’s benchmark index to a record and Russian stocks climbed for a fifth day.
(May 2014) An investment in the Standard & Poor 500-stock index would have doubled from early 2009 through early 2013 and then gained an additional 18% over the last year. An investment in Europe's Stoxx 600 would have risen by 95% in the period end February 2009 to end February 2013 and in the next 12 months, the index was flat.
(May 2014) The 25 highest-earning hedge fund managers in the United States took home a total of $21.15bn in compensation in 2013. Even so, it has been claimed that 2013 was not a great year to be a hedge fund manager. While the US stock market surged 30%, much of that gain was driven by hot momentum stocks in the Internet, technology, media and health care sectors - - precisely the type of securities that many hedge fund managers like to sell short because the underlying fundamentals often don’t back up their inflated valuations.
(April 2014) For many years, the rise of the middle class in emerging markets has been the focus of Western investors. However, recent research shows that it’s the working classes who will be the real engines of consumer growth in developing countries.
(April 2014) Google Flu Trends launched in 2008 was seen as an example of how big data would soon make conventional analytics obsolete. It accumulated data from several countries to track the incidence of flu but last month in a Science magazine article, four social scientists reported that Google’s flu-tracking service not only wildly overestimated the number of flu cases in the United States in the 2012-13 flu season but has also consistently overshot in the last few years. Google Flu Trends’ estimate for the 2011-12 flu season was more than 50% higher than the cases reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). And, they wrote, for a period of more than two years ending in September 2013, the Google estimates were high in 100 out of 108 weeks. This is a reality check that data often requires context and human intervention.
