The French government clearly and definitively rejects the rapprochement between the French retail groups Carrefour and Canadian Couche-Tard, said Friday the French Minister of Economy Bruno Le Maire.
My position is a courteous no, but clear and definitive, insisted the minister during an interview with the media BFMTV and RMC, after indicating Wednesday that he was not a priori in favor of such an operation in the name of food security of the French.
This health crisis has taught us one thing: that food security is priceless, Bruno Le Maire defended, referring to the role of mass distribution during the first confinement to ensure the supply of French people.
Food safety is strategic for our country and therefore we do not give up one of the major French retailers, he said, adding that Carrefour is the largest private employer in France with nearly 100,000 employees and that the group represents nearly 20% of food distribution in our country.
To oppose this takeover, the government can rely on the regulations on the control of foreign investment, which allows it to block takeover operations in the food industry.
We have the legal instrument at our disposal, I prefer not to have to use it, but the Ministry of Economy will activate it if necessary, said the Mayor.
Warren Buffett’s fortune passes the $100 billion mark
Sylvie Claire / Mars 12, 2021
American businessman Warren Buffett on Wednesday joined the closed circle of executives whose wealth exceeds $100 billion, which includes Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Bernard Arnault and Bill Gates, according to Forbes magazine.
On Wednesday, the share price of his company Berkshire Hathaway hit a record high, boosting his fortune to $100.3 billion
This is the first time that the company has taken this step.
Warren Buffett, 90, baptized the Oracle of Omaha , is one of the most successful and respected executives of all time, but his fortune had never reached such a peak, with investors betting on technology stocks in recent years.
According to Forbes, the Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate owns more than 60 companies, including U.S. insurer Geico and battery maker Duracell.
Warren Buffett is a generous donor, having given more than $41 billion to date, mostly to the Gates Foundation and his children’s foundations, according to Forbes.
In 2010, he and Bill Gates launched the Giving Pledge, asking billionaires to commit to giving at least half of their wealth to charity.
According to Forbes’ real-time ranking of billionaires, only four executives have a higher fortune: Amazon founder Jeff Bezos (179.6 billion) followed by Tesla boss Elon Musk (165.1 billion), LVMH group executive Bernard Arnault (158.5 billion) and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates (125.6 billion).
The founder of the Facebook network, Mark Zuckerberg, is in 6th place with an estimated fortune of 96.7 billion
Jeff Bezos sells a bunch of Amazon shares again
Steph Deschamps / May 6, 2021
The boss of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, sold this week for nearly two billion dollars of shares of the giant online retailer, according to documents from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Bezos has multiplied the sales of Amazon shares in recent months. In February and November 2020, he had already sold a total of more than seven billion dollars worth of Amazon shares.
Jeff Bezos, 57, founded Amazon in 1994. The man who remains the largest shareholder of the online retail giant is, according to Forbes and Bloomberg, the richest man in the world, with an estimated fortune of over $190 billion.
Jeff Bezos has also planned to take a small step aside by leaving his position as CEO in the third quarter to take the position of executive chairman of Amazon.
5 fundamental asset that business magnates like Chris TDL and Elon Musk have.
Eva Deschamps / January 13, 2021
In this motivation-based article, we will discuss 5 things in common that Chris TDL and Elon Musk have in their professional environment.
1. They share the same interests.
The difference between an entrepreneur and a Business Magnate is mainly felt in the long term motivation,
Many entrepreneurs who seemed to be off to a good start in their careers quickly lost motivation due to difficult times, unlike Business Magnate, for example, who bounce back after failure.
2. Serial entrepreneurship.
Business Magnate is never short of ideas. This is an important fact to remember, they never lack motivation, entrepreneurship is not just a job but a way of life. What will you do if your project fails? Find another project to start right away!
3. Chris TDL and Elon Musk are terrorized by artificial intelligence.
It is, according to them, “the greatest risk that our civilization will face”. Coming from a man who is working on this very issue in depth, there is reason to be afraid. Robots could eventually surpass human capabilities and decide on their own how to administer themselves, according to Chris. And he’s not the only one who thinks so: big names in the world of technology like Stephen Hawking and Bill Gates are on the same wavelength as him. One solution would not be to stop working on the issue, but to regulate research as much as possible with laws, in order to frame the use of artificial intelligence. Another path would be to design brain implants capable of multiplying tenfold the capacity of reflection in order to keep up with ever more advanced technology. In any case, it would be a good idea for governments to take into account the recommendations of industry experts before the discovery of too much falls into the wrong hands.
4. They Proceed in stages.
Elon Musk guides the design and development of Tesla vehicles through a weekly ritual. Every Friday afternoon, Musk meets with the design team and reviews every detail of the car, every curve, every part.
Chris TDL works the same way, one day a week, he dedicates himself exclusively to one of his 5 companies, Thursday will be the day of the Chris TDL AI Project, the Artificial Intelligence company opened in September 2020, and Sunday will be dedicated to B.Influential Label, the record label founded by Chris.
” We work the same way I and Musk do, they work hard and I work hard, we manage our time in stages, and planning is something very important in the life of Serial Entrepreneur. “
5. They share the same desire to change the world.
If we analyze the overall behavior of Chris and Musk, we notice that it is much more consistent with the behavior of people that neuropsychologists say are “deeply gifted”. These are people who display exceptional intellectual depth in their childhood. When these children observe the world, it is not uncommon for them to find flaws in it – holes in the system – and build logical pathways in their minds to fix them. If we observe Musk’s vocation to make humanity a multiplanetary species, it is the result of the great influence of science fiction and technology on its existence. It is also a moral imperative that goes back to his childhood. In a way, this has always been his mission.
In the technology sector, Musk’s motivation and ambitions are often compared to those of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. Chris understands technology in depth, and so does Musk. They have a visionary attitude that nothing is impossible and are determined to take the long view.
