Davos in Crisis as Trust in Business, Government Crumbles

Good morning. Don’t tell anyone, but I’m in Davos - the Swiss mountain retreat for the global corporate elite that has fallen out of favor in an era of anti-global, anti-corporate, anti-elite public sentiment.

At the New York Times, Andrew Ross Sorkin took on those who say Tillerson is dodging a huge tax bill, with a headline that declared: “That’s not the case.” But Jesse Drucker at the same paper quoted tax experts saying… → Read More

Bloomberg reports a number of U.S. companies already have called off or postponed plans to offshore operations in Mexico. That’s according to the CEO of Tacna, a California firm that helps companies build manufacturing facilities south of the border. Another, similar… → Read More

A Business-Heavy Administration

Good morning. President Obama earned the dubious distinction of having fewer experienced business people in his cabinet than any other administration in modern times. President-elect Trump seems to be going for the opposite honor. In addition to Commerce Secretary-designate Wilbur Ross, Treasury Secretary-designate Steve Mnuchin and Labor Secretary-designate Andy Puzder, he is said to be leaning… → Read More

A New Manifesto for Business

This weekend’s Fortune/TIME Global Forum left me convinced that global business is at a tipping point.
