  • I address this topic as well in the Global Financial Crisis Manifesto: http://petersonteixeira.com/manifesto/THE-MANIFESTO.pdf

    The M&A (mergers & acquisitions) are exploding now which is the result of prep for the coming crisis by all these brands.

    “A four-day week could make employees happier.

    Productivity increased by about 20% during the trial, while revenue remained steady.

    Another result is an improvement in “the simple things,” he says, like commuting outside of rush hour.”

    This is true. And this kind of management will put companies back on track for growth because you change the company reward system aggressively. It works. This is not the first case:

    “So, on June 2015, I initiated a three-month test. I moved my whole company to a 5 hour workday where everyone works from 8.a.m to 1.p.m. Over a year later, we’re sticking with it...

    The results have been astounding...I actually suspected things would go down a bit, but the net effect would be worth it. The reality is that we didn’t take a hit at all. Our annual revenues for 2015 were up over 40%. All our numbers were improving, in fact.”

    As the financial crisis worsens, the companies who choose to improve their employees’ lives will see a major boost in revenue and productivity levels, because workers will feel that there’s a palpable way to improve their lives even in such chaotic market reality.

    Bravo for these folks :)

  • “Why it matters: Previous FTC privacy fines levied against tech firms have been in the (low) millions, not billions. “

    What a great government isn’t? You know what this will also do? Force Facebook to add two more business models to make investors happy and to survive the global financial crisis:

    “Why it matters: Previous FTC privacy fines levied against tech firms have been in the (low) millions, not billions. “

    What a great government isn’t? You know what this will also do? Force Facebook to add two more business models to make investors happy and to survive the global financial crisis:

    1) Pay to access it (subscription)

    2) Pay to post X times per day

    Those are the only two ways left to actually grow Facebook because all the other “innovations” and attemps by Facebook to boost its revenue are being ignored due to lack of trust on Facebook. Brands are careful now. Here’s the reality behind Facebook Watch, one of its latest “opportunities”:

    “Four digital media executives, all speaking anonymously due to their companies having multiple Facebook-funded Watch shows, said they’re resisting selling some new shows to Facebook because of Facebook’s desire for intellectual property ownership...

    Ownership over the IP has become more important. By owning the rights to a successful show or format, producers can make more money over a longer period of time. For instance, a show can be licensed in other countries and languages, or a short digital series can be repackaged into a half-hour show for linear TV. Merchandising can be an option, too. But if Facebook owns the IP, those opportunities go away.”

    DIGIDAY: Publishers Are Wrestling with Facebook’s Desire to Own Facebook-funded Watch Shows - http://bit.ly/2shatv3

    But there’s more.

    Here we go baby:

    “The surge in profits run counter to a warning Zuckerberg issued in November, when he said Facebook’s profitability would take a ‘significant’ hit because the company was spending so much money fighting threats like election interference, fake news, and harmful content. ‘I’m dead serious about this’, he told investors.”

    Hold on, stay with me because there’s more to show you:

    “The Weather Channel is no longer publishing videos to Facebook....but we noticed, over the course of two years, that we were being paid in all types of currencies - followers, shares, views - that did not feel like money. Paid to produce a predetermined number of minutes per month, The Weather Channel found it was only making $28 per minute of video produced. For comparison, Katz pointed out how the CBS reality show ‘Survivor’ cost $45,000 per minute to make in 2009.”

    DIGIDAY: A Fun Adventure, Not A Business: The Weather Channel stopped Publishing Video on Facebook - http://bit.ly/2J8kHIK

    There’s way more to show but I’ll stop here. What businesspeople basically needs to understand is simple:

    1. Brands no longer trust Facebook anymore, so any innovative feature that gives additional visibility (because Facebook wants to test it) will be looked at as just another BS.

    2. Partners also no longer trust Facebook. The biggest evidence to save you time reading about all that: THE WASHINGTON POST: Facebook, longtime friend of data brokers, becomes their stiffest competition - https://wapo.st/2rq5SX9 and read this truth bomb by the CEO of Axiom, one of the companies that got kicked out by Facebook: http://bit.ly/2wo4KJs

    3. The government also has no trust on Facebook. But the government is stupid, so if it starts inflicting BILLION dollar fines, it will rapidly crush Facebook’s revenue. The easiest way out to get more profits instantly is through those 2 ways I mentioned above.

    That’s the real consequence boys and girls. Suddenly, many will wake up to a very different market reality.

    This above is the real issue for Reddit because in that age range, people tend to have no money at all. The Millennials and the Gen Z are the poorest generations of our time, which is why Reddit has that horrible $0.30 ARPU value

  • “Perhaps most discouraging of all is that the data is trending the wrong way. Over the last several years, the report’s authors say that those organizations calling themselves data-driven has actually dropped each year from 37.1 percent in 2017 to 32.4 percent in 2018 to 31.0 percent in the latest survey.

    And then you have to add adblockers to the mix, robot traffic etc. The top 5 companies in the world are the ones that do have more reliable data (Google, Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Microsoft). The rest, have some data. But relying on it for every single business decision is stupid. Because gut feeling is what originates great things anyway.

    “Facebook is changing how it determines employee bonuses, tying them to how well the company confronts issues such as misinformation and hate speech on the platform.”

    That’s cute. So what is misinformation? And hate speech? You know what this will also do? Block Facebook employees from climbing up the corporate ladder because all these bonuses will be tied to something SUBJECTIVE.

    People who used to work for big corporations understand this well. At the end of the year, in the “Who got the Promotion” meeting, they say to your face: “You know John, if on July 15 you had said more ‘Hello’ to your collegues, if you had built more relationships, we would have promoted you now. So next time, you need to improve your...relationships”.

    Ridiculous.

    Removing objective goals only kills meritocracy because people have no way to tell whether they are on the right track or not.

    Looks like Facebook wants to kill the possibility of progress for everyone, including its own employees.

    I feel sorry for Facebook employees.

    EDIT: Fresh and fast response from Facebook employees below:

    “They added: "People were always quite motivated by their performance rating and the corresponding bonus. If this kind of impact truly makes its way into the review process, it can make a difference."

    A third said they supported the move — but expressed concerns that impact would be hard to measure, and suggested other changes at the company might be more impactful.

    "Glad to see they are making some changes," they said. "However it sounds more vague than ever. And not sure how they will evaluate something so subjective."

  • The article itself gives the real reason for the “millennials drama”, which it briefly mentions below:

    “Explanations like Tim’s are at the core of the millennial reputation: We’re spoiled, entitled, lazy, and failures at what’s come to be known as “adulting,” a word invented by millennials as a catchall

    The article itself gives the real reason for the “millennials drama”, which it briefly mentions below:

    “Explanations like Tim’s are at the core of the millennial reputation: We’re spoiled, entitled, lazy, and failures at what’s come to be known as “adulting,” a word invented by millennials as a catchall for the tasks of self-sufficient existence. “

    The actual reason why millennials have been facing a very hard life, is due to the previous economic crisis (2008), blocking most millennials from achieving adulthood milestones such as buying a house, getting married (which demands money to support yourself and your family), buying a car etc.

    The article explains below why:

    “As with previous generations, there was an expectation that the next one would be better off — both in terms of health and finances — than the one that had come before. But as millennials enter into mid-adulthood, that prognosis has been proven false. Financially speaking, most of us lag far behind where our parents were when they were our age. We have far less saved, far less equity, far less stability, and far, far more student debt. The “greatest generation” had the Depression and the GI Bill; boomers had the golden age of capitalism; Gen-X had deregulation and trickle-down economics. And millennials? We’ve got venture capital, but we’ve also got the 2008 financial crisis, the decline of the middle class and the rise of the 1%, and the steady decay of unions and stable, full-time employment.”

    That’s why a lot of what millennials do result in no progress in life. Humans are based on progress. If someone gave you $1 million to write a 2000-word article somewhere, you would do it, because the reward is worth it.

    The problem is that many things that millennials do is not worth it. Doesn’t give them progress.

    College? Scam. And you’ll leave with tons of debt afterwards.

    Jobs? Are just to survive. You can’t buy a home or a car or save money to invest etc.

    And the list goes on. So millennials feel burnout because all their effort seems worthless. When they face tasks now, they project the pain instead of the reward, hence why the burnout.

    Here’s a VERY GOOD Huffpost article written by a TEAM of people that talks about this subject:

    “I am 35 years old - the oldest millennial, the first millennial - and for a decade now, I’ve been waiting for adulthood to kick in. My rent consumes nearly HALF my income, I haven’t had a steady job since Pluto was a planet and my savings are dwindling faster than the ice caps the baby boomers melted.

    HUFFPOST - Why Millennials are facing the scariest financial future of any generation since The Great Depression - http://bit.ly/2xCXaLy

    This is also the cause for why they seem spoiled. Because many still live with their parents, because they have no money to support themselves, which may result in their parents sometimes doing chores for them, making them spoiled.

    However, the real cause for all this is the lack of economic progress. Financial progress. That’s the truth. Yet, we see retarded analysis and people blaming a whole generation without understanding the root cause for it.

    You know the real cause of it?

    Tim Cook is not even close the visionary Steve Jobs was.

    This impacts the product, which impacts sales obviously. Those who are too money-driven will not create masterpieces, which is what people really want to buy. Tony Robbins’ old books still sell today. Why?

    They’re masterpieces. I’m not a huge Steve Jobs fan but he indeed was a true entrepreneur who cared a lot about delivering innovative, quality products. That made the whole difference in sales.
