$1,300,000,000,000 in annual sales revenue. ♻️
9,500,000 full-time jobs. ♻️
That’s what the “green economy” generates in the United States, according to a new study. To put that in context, 9.5 million jobs represents 4% of the working-age population in the U.S., while $1.3 trillion is just under 7% of annual GDP.
America’s “green economy” grew 20% from 2013 to 2016 – and that number is projected to continue to rise as the battle to stop climate change accelerates.
Now other countries are looking to cash in on the potential of going green. Will the U.S. be able to remain competitive? Find out at the link in bio.
John Hope Bryant wants Sen. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren to know one thing: He wouldn’t be where he is today without capitalism.
Bryant, a best-selling author and philanthropist who has served as an advisor to the last three presidents, grew up in Compton — an LA community with longstanding gang issues — but says with capitalism, his life “fundamentally changed.”
“Without capitalism and a banker teaching me financial literacy at 9 years old,” he said, “I wouldn’t be who I am.”
Though Bryant says “Bernie and Elizabeth mean well” regarding their criticism of capitalism leading to wealth inequality, he says “We got to stop with the prosperity-or-pitchforks conversation.”

Since 2009, shares of the company have seen a total return of about 400% — that far outpaces the S&P 500, which saw a total return of around 250% in that same timeframe.
That’s because there’s no denying Google has been a success. It’s one of the world’s most visited websites and its name is so popular it’s even been deemed a verb in the English dictionary (Seriously — Google it!).

Satya Nadella’s paycheck got a little heavier in 2019. 🤑
The Microsoft CEO received $42.9 million in total compensation (mostly in stock awards) in the fiscal year ended June 30. That’s up 66% from what he made the prior fiscal year. 👀
So why’d Nadella get such a hefty raise?
Microsoft cited his “strategic leadership,” and the growth of Microsoft’s Intelligent Cloud business (which is now the largest of Microsoft’s three segments) for Nadella’s bump in pay.

President Trump could very well cruise right into reelection next year, according to Moody’s Analytics. 👀
Though Trump’s approval rating currently stands at 40%, Moody’s highly accurate election model shows his Electoral College victory could easily surpass his 2016 win over Hillary Clinton.
Moody’s model is based on how consumers feel about their own financial situation, the gains the stock market has made during Trump’s tenure, and prospects for unemployment, which has fallen to a 50-year low.
“If voters were to vote primarily on the basis of their pocketbooks, the president would steamroll the competition,” the report said.

Billionaire Marc Benioff wants more taxes — on himself.
The Salesforce co-CEO is calling for a “new capitalism,” which “includes higher taxes on the wealthiest among us" and would allow businesses to focus less on profits and more on their impact on society, while using their power to help advance important causes.
“Nationally, increasing taxes on high-income individuals like myself would help generate the trillions of dollars that we desperately need to improve education and health care and fight climate change,” Benioff said.

One longtime Berkshire Hathaway shareholder is fed up with Warren Buffett. 😬
Wedgewood Partners’ David Rolfe says he sold his firm’s stake in Berkshire after decades of being shareholders. Why? He’s upset with Berkshire’s massive cash load (which has swelled to $120 billion) and because the firm’s shares have lagged the S&P 500.
Rolfe is also frustrated by Berkshire’s lackluster investments in IBM and Kraft-Heinz, saying the firm should have instead invested in companies like Visa and MasterCard.
But it’s not like Buffett will miss Rolfe much.
The RiverPark/Wedgewood Fund owned 48,000 shares of Berkshire B class stock, only amounting to about $10 million. And Rolfe’s performance throughout the bull market hasn’t been too stellar, either.

For many, it’s A LOT. According to researchers, people would want an average of $17,530 a year just to say goodbye to search engines.
Even though many online services are free, the Fed suspects the internet is having a much bigger impact on the economy than we think. Despite weak productivity gains and a less than stellar (though steady) GDP, the U.S. is in its longest ever stretch of economic growth. What’s causing that growth?

Parents and future parents: Listen up. 🗣️
Even if your kids seems like they’re being dramatic, don’t dismiss their feelings. It’s up to you to teach them to be emotionally strong. And if you do coach them to manage their emotions, it’ll pay off — big time.
According to researchers, the more mentally and socially competent kids are in kindergarten, the more likely they are to go to college and be employed full-time by age 25. But those with the lowest social and emotional competency scores? They have the highest risk of dropping out of school and substance abuse issues.
So you may want to reconsider next time you tell them “Don’t be scared, everything will be OK.”

Amazon’s new wind farm projects will help the tech giant reach its goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2040. 🍃
But one of those farms in the Tehachapi Mountains in California isn’t just helping Amazon go green — the farm’s also having a big impact on a tiny town just northeast of it.
As outside contractors come to build the wind turbines, they stay in the town’s hotels and eat at its local restaurants. The farm is even fueling jobs in the area, with one renewable energy maintenance company, World Wind and Solar, trying to hire local residents.And even after the initial construction boom, there’s still room for business growth.
“It’s a quick and healthy way to get people work,” said the WWS CEO. “It has such an opportunity to grow a career so fast.”

When Nadiem Makarim launched ride-hailing service Go-Jek, he was simply trying to find a way of improving his country’s flailing motorcycle taxi industry.
What started as a simple call-center business with 20 drivers quickly evolved into a multi-service app boasting a workforce of more than a MILLION people. Within just 6 years, the company’s success wrote Makarim’s name into Indonesian history: he was the founder of the country’s first ever start-up valued at more than $1 billion.

It’s been more than 8 years since Steve Jobs died on Oct. 5, 2011.
But his legacy and lessons about life, work and success still live on today.
In a 1994 interview, Jobs was at one of the lowest points of his career. He had long been booted from Apple and the personal computer revolution seemed to be dimming. Yet, when asked if he still believed in the limitless potential of technology, Jobs answered “yes.”
“But it’s not a faith in technology,” he said. “It’s faith in people.”
To put it simply, Jobs believed in order to create revolutionary changes, we needed to prioritize the relationship between humans and technology, because if you give people tools, “they’ll do wonderful things with them.”

Millennials are’t nearly as well-off as their parents were at the same age. 😟
But there’s one group of millennials in particular earning even less than their peers: those without a bachelor’s degree.
And the growing gap in wages between those with a higher education and those without one is even more apparent when looking at annual household income. In 2018, households headed by millennials with a bachelor’s degree earned about $105,000.
But households headed by millennials with a degree from some college?
They earned $62,000, a whopping $43,000 less than their counterparts. (Those with just a high school diploma earned even less.)
And this is specifically a millennial issue: The educational pay gap was way less significant for prior generations.

The Tesla CEO says that in three years if you buy a car that doesn’t have the hardware to fully self-drive, it’ll be like “owning a horse.”
And, no, he’s not talking about a Ford Mustang.
“The fundamental message that consumers should be taking today is that it’s financially insane to buy anything other than a Tesla,” Musk said. “…I mean, fine if you want to own a horse. But you should go into it with that expectation.”

In the wake of the Varsity Blues scandal, there’s one question on many people’s minds: How do wealthy students benefit during the college application process?
And rich students do, in fact, have a leg-up on their low-income peers, according to research.
One reason? Rich students typically get much higher SAT scores.
A 2015 analysis found that the lowest average SAT scores were among students from families who make less than $20,000 per household, while the highest average scores were from students whose families make more than $200,000.

Deliberate power outages could become the new normal in California — a state with a powerhouse $2.7 trillion economy.
A million California residents lost power for what could be days on end as the state’s largest utility cuts electricity to prevent wildfires caused by windblown power lines. Because PG&E is the only option for many people in the area, there is no other company for them to turn to for power.
The cutbacks follow a plan instituted after two deadly wildfires — some blamed on PG&E — killed dozens of people and destroyed thousands of homes, forcing the utility into bankruptcy.
But even though the company says its move is to prevent fires, many residents aren’t pleased, to say the least.

The average American household spent almost $5,000 on health care last year — per person.
That’s twice as much as the roughly $2,500 per person that Americans spent in 1984, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
But it’s not drug prices or medical services that caused the spike in costs.
The main reason? Health insurance.
The cost of insurance has skyrocketed since the 1980s, increasing 740% since 1984. The average American paid $3,400 for insurance alone last year.
And it's not much better for people who even have employer-based insurance. They have to shell out an average of $1,242 in out-of-pocket costs.

China is reportedly open to discussing a partial trade deal with the U.S. 👀
As long as the Trump administration doesn’t impose further tariffs on China (including the levies due this month and December), China is willing to discuss a partial agreement, an unnamed source told Bloomberg.
The source also said Beijing would agree to purchase more agricultural products from the U.S. — though, it won’t budge on major sticking points that have cause the trade war to drag on.
U.S. stocks jumped higher on the news, but President Trump has previously played down any talk of a partial deal, preferring a “complete deal” instead.

“The business world often gets caught up in facts and figures — and while the details and data are important, the ability to dream, conceptualise and innovate is what sets the successful and the unsuccessful apart.”
And he says one day, the skills associated with dyslexia will urgently be needed in the new world of work.
“We should stop trying to get all children to think the same way. We should support and celebrate all types of neurodiversity and encourage children’s imagination, creativity and problem solving — the skills of the future.”

One expert is sounding the alarm. 🚨
Global warming poses huge risks to global companies, says Stephanie Maier of HSBC Global Asset Management. Without greater action, she says the world could expect about $23 trillion in global losses over the next 80 years.
Companies have a choice, she says: Change or cease to exist.
“We know what we need to achieve, and there is no time to waste in getting there.”
But just as companies need to double down on decarbonization, it’s also on investors to push for a cleaner planet, Maier said. She believes investors need to ensure companies adapt, rather than face the costs of failure.

Hard data, which refers to actual numbers about the economy like unemployment and retail sales, continues to reflect economic strength. The unemployment rate hit its lowest level in 50 years last month, while retail sales were up 0.4% in August.

“E-cigarettes are bad news.”
E-cigarette vapor with nicotine causes lung cancer and potential bladder cancer in mice, damaging their DNA and leading researchers at NYU to conclude vaping is likely “very harmful” to humans as well.
Researchers found that e-cigarette vapor caused DNA damage in the lungs and bladder of mice and inhibited “DNA repair in lung tissues.”
Of the 40 mice exposed to nicotine-infused e-cigarette vapor, 22.5% developed lung cancer and 57.5% developed precancerous lesions on the bladder.
Though it may not be known for “decades to come” how damaging e-cigarettes are for humans, this is the first study to definitively link vaping nicotine to cancer.

China’s economy is HUGE — but it wasn’t always that way.
After years of economic isolation, the country has managed to climb the ranks and build one of the largest economies in the world.
With a $13 trillion GDP in 2018, China is only second in the world to the United States. And some economists even predict the country’s GDP will surpass America’s by 2030.
China was able to rise up by using its massive network of factories (which churn out products to consumers all over the world) and by becoming a major player in global investment flows.

An NFL paycheck certainly has its perks. 💵
And in Jamal Agnew’s (@two_6ix) case, one of those perks is wiping out the remainder of his $50,000 student loan bill. 🎓
“Obviously I’m dreading having to pay these loans back,” the 24-year-old said. “But I think about it. Like, 90% of the people I’m leaving school with are going to have these loans and they are not going to be making nearly as much as I am [right now], so I’m just grateful for the position I’m in, the type of money I’ve made so far in the NFL.”
This year, the Lions cornerback is set to make $645,500, so he can soon say sayonara to his debt.
But Agnew’s been making a six figure salary for years now, so why not pay the loans off all at once?
