    Excerpt from CNBC -- "I think the market got it right, that the deal is unlikely to be done. The deal is very likely to increase prices for all consumers and it's very likely that the Department of Justice is going to try to intervene and stop the deal. It's very hard to go from four companies to three companies without prices increasing."
  • McKinsey Global Institute logo
    Excerpt from McKinsey Global Institute -- "The other piece that I don’t think gets talked about enough is that the business side of this is really important. You can’t do this effectively—this is my judgment—if business thinks labor is just another input where the goal is to minimize costs, and you get rid of it when you can. That’s not the way it works in the societies and the economies that seem to be succeeding most with this."

    Excerpt from the Economic Times -- "'To anyone who was looking for a pure Indian ecommerce success story, this deal will be seen as a disappointment,' says Anindya Ghose, a professor at New York University.

    Excerpt from PCMag -- "Let's say you're wondering whether a quest is more engaging if you're trying to save someone versus trying to find an artifact. So you run an A/B test releasing version A to five million people and version B to five million people. You measure different metrics, like how many people return to the mission more than once and how long they spend. If you discover version A works better, you go with the red code and put aside the yellow. And you keep doing that until you have the tenth, twentieth, or thirtieth generation of a game."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "When consumers write reviews directly from their phones, they tend to be more emotional, as well as more negative. Part of this is because mobile reviews are more likely to be written during or soon after the experience, when consumers are still feeling strongly about it – for example, an angry consumer will write more harshly about a bad restaurant experience from their cell phone right after the meal ends, than they will later from their desktop, once they’ve had some time to calm down."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "Building environments where creativity can be nurtured is key to sparking your child's imagination, Schilling notes. 'That means instead of scheduling the heck out of your kids, you want to make sure they have downtime — and make sure it's not in front of a screen,' she says. 'That way, they can create their own cognitive paths of association in their minds that are unconstrained by what other people think.'"

  • Excerpt from Luxury Daily -- "We often see elaborate displays of the most important patrons of the brand in association with a specific product that they particularly cherished. This helps create social and historical context for the content of the brand's collections, but most importantly, it humanizes the brand in the eyes of the viewer. The narrative shifts from placing emphasis on product to the impact that this branded product has had in someone's life and the emotional bond between that person and the brand."
  • Excerpt from Fox Business -- "What China has done is it's starting to attack the United States where it hurts. This is the first shot across the bow.

We'll see if it lasts, because they have just as much data, they are just as scary, their platforms are weaponized, too,' Galloway said."

    Excerpt from i24 -- "I think that is what Trump actually wants, he doesn't want the collective agreements but he wants the individual agreements so he wants individual agreements for the United States and the rest of the world and various countries are also trying to make individual agreements with each other. In this game of individual agreements, the large players are more likely to win and the large players are the United States, China, and some countries in the European Union."
