iStockphoto, peterhowell. Traditional retail is under attack. In fact, it has been under attack for decades. Some say it may have started with Amazon.com in the early 1990s. While that had a big impact and still does, retail is always changing. These days, retail stores and chains, and in fact entire shopping malls have closed. Today, the big threat looks like it will come from 5G wireless. 5G wireless will launch many new ideas and new ways for people to shop. That is both a threat and a growth opportunity for the traditional retail industry. Actually, companies like Amazon.com acquiring Whole Foods is another big example of the level of transformation we can expect going forward. It’s a threat for retailers who do not change with the times.

The New York Times Company is leaning toward naming Meredith Kopit Levien as its next chief executive officer, tapping an internal candidate to succeed Mark Thompson after an eight-year stint, according to people familiar with the matter. Levien, currently chief operating officer, is the front-runner to get the top job, with the move potentially coming as soon as April, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the decision isn’t yet final. Thompson, 62, was named Times CEO in 2012 after serving as director general of the British Broadcasting Corp. The Times declined to comment.

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - World No. 1 oil producer Saudi Aramco is set to gain unconditional EU antitrust approval for its $69 billion buy of a 70% stake in petrochemicals group Saudi Basic Industries Corp (SABIC), people familiar with the matter said on Friday. Aramco announced the deal to acquire the controlling stake from sovereign investor Public Investment Fund (PIF) in March last year, a move key to its diversification into refining and petrochemicals. Riyadh-headquartered SABIC, the world’s fourth largest petrochemicals group, has operations in over 50 countries. The European Commission, which is scheduled to decide on the case by Feb. 27, declined to co.

By Howard Schneider. NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. central bank will need to act aggressively to counter future downturns, deploying old tools more quickly and adopting new ones, Federal Reserve Governor Lael Brainard said on Friday. Her remarks, to the annual University of Chicago Booth School of Business forum on monetary policy, came as traders in financial markets piled into bets that such action could be needed sooner than thought. Intense efforts are underway at central banks globally to develop new ways to fight shocks amid low inflation and low interest rates that make conventional responses, like simply reducing a target borrowing rate, less potent than before. Brainard’s call Friday for expanding the Fed’s policy arsenal came in re.

(Reuters) - Xerox Holdings Corp said on Friday it would continue to pursue HP Inc, even after the PC maker said it would implement a poison pill plan to shield itself against a takeover offer from the U.S. printer maker. “Despite the HP board’s intention to deny shareholders the chance to choose for themselves, we will press ahead with our previously announced tender offer and electing our slate of highly qualified director candidates,” Xerox said. It raised its offer earlier this month by $2 to $24 per share, following several rejections of its previous buyout offers by HP. HP on Thursday said the implementation of the stockholder rights plan, which has a one-year expiration period, aims to.

Pixabay, Gerd Altmann. Your company is zipping along, doing well financially, and then a customer asks you to go above and beyond your comfort zone. What do you do? Let's say you have a software company doing MRP, and a customer asks you to create a module specifically for accounting. I guess you can hire a team to fulfill your client's job keeping them in-house, but what do you do after the client's job is complete? Do you fire the whole team or decide to add a new revenue stream to your product? I wrote about a great company that does the whole MRP thing , including accounting, and it's all in-house. The company listened to its customers and figured that if it included everything the client needed, the software would be a hit — and it was!

Pixabay, Wikimediaimages. By Yuri Kageyama. TOKYO (AP) — The outbreak of the new virus threatens to erase $29 billion of this year’s revenue for global airlines, mostly for Chinese carriers, as travel crashes worldwide, according to the International Air Transport Association. The trade group for global airlines said Thursday that the virus causing COVID-19 has the potential for causing a 13% decline in demand for Asian carriers this year. The contraction comes at a time when Asian airlines’ sales had been growing, the group said. Global air traffic will be reduced by 4.7% for the year, marking the first overall decline in such demand since the financial crisis of 2008 and 2009, IATA said in a statement.

Image: Deere & Co. By Rajesh Kumar Singh. CHICAGO (Reuters) - Deere & Co on Friday reported an unexpected increase in first-quarter profit and retained its full-year earnings forecast as signs of stabilization in the U.S. farm sector offset weak demand for construction machines, sending its shares soaring. Its shares were last up 7.5% at $178.30 at 9:20am ET in pre-market trade. The world’s largest farm equipment maker’s earnings in the past quarters were buffeted by a nearly two-year-long U.S.-China trade war that hit U.S. agricultural exports, leaving farmers struggling to turn a profit. But President Donald Trump’s interim trade deal with China has raised hopes of a recovery in farm machinery demand. “Farmer confidence, though still subdu.
