Buffett-Backed Kraft Heinz Cuts 2,500 Jobs as Hees Targets Costs - Bloomberg Business
[ fifth-largest food and beverage company. ] Kraft Foods and H.J. Heinz merged in July in a deal orchestrated by Buffett and 3G Capital, which jointly controlled the ketchup company. 3G’s Bernardo Hees, who is now running the combined foodmaker, cut more than 7,000 jobs in 20 months after taking over at Heinz. Berkshire Vice Chairman Charles Munger has endorsed the job cuts, saying such measures are essential to a productive capitalist system. [...] The alternative to reducing staff is “what happened in Russia,” Munger said at Buffett’s annual meeting in May. “The whole damn economy didn’t work.” // &! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cadbury#Acquisition_by_Kraft_Foods &! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mondel%C4%93z_International

Empire of the geeks | The Economist
Silicon Valley should be celebrated. But its insularity risks a backlash [...] Critics are often from industries wanting to protect their privileges; the geeks’ aggressive behaviour is sometimes part of the creative destruction that leads to progress. But that is not the only source of anger. Silicon Valley also dominates markets, sucks out the value contained in personal data, and erects business models that make money partly by avoiding taxes. There is a risk that global consumers will feel exploited and that the effects of a shrinking tax base will infuriate voters. If the perception takes root that enormous profits from exploiting data and avoiding taxes are crystallised in the fortunes of a few people living on a patch of ground near San Francisco, then there will be a backlash." // recent emergence of marketplace for X and gig platform for X - 1099 Economy etc etc, making money with our data - Facebook.

Budget 2015: The return of Tina - BBC News
Tina, it would appear, is back. Forgotten Tina? The acronym for There Is No Alternative? Regularly cited by Margaret Thatcher? Thatcher? Oh, come on, it hasn't been that long since the Tories were in sole command of the UK. [ // history rhymes; Angela Merkel and her "Alternativlos." = There is No Alternative. ] George Osborne set out quite deliberately in a range of ways to suggest that there is no effective or realistic alternative to his approach. [...] It is aimed over their heads at the voters. Mr Osborne is seeking to suggest that there is a remorseless logic to his package, that only the ingrate or innumerate would oppose it.
