Elon Musk is “person of the year” 2021

He is the richest man in the world and does not own a house. He also has the biggest robot company in the world. He drives a car he created that uses no gas and barely needs a driver. He is the man behind SpaceX and dreams of Mars.

He`s a player in robots and solar, cryptocurrency and climate, brain-computer implants to stave off the menace of artificial intelligence, and underground tunnels to move people and freight at super speeds.

He is criticized by socialists and especially Elizabeth Warren who tweeted this on December 13; «Let`s change the rigged tax code so The Person of the Year will actually pay taxes and stop freeloading off everyone else.»

Musk tweeted this on Wednesday; «And if you opened your eyes for 2 seconds, you would realize I will pay more taxes than any American in history this year.» The fact is that Musk must pay a record-breaking $15 billion tax bill.

This is money that goes straight into the pocket of the Socialists who very often claim to «take the bill.» for something. But as you clearly can see, the money comes from entrepreneurs like Elon Musk.

The tax bill is probably the real reason he`s selling a large chunk of Tesla shares. But he can afford to do it because $15 billion in taxes is just a small part of his wealth. According to Bloomberg Billionaire Index, his net worth is $255 billion. In other words; he is on top of that list.

Elon Musk is the man who aspires to save our planet and get us a new one to inhabit; clown, genius, edgelord, visionary, industrialist, showman, cad; a madcap hybrid of Thomas Edison, P.T. Barnum, Andrew Carnegie, and Watchmen`s Doctor Manhattan, the brooding, blue-skinned man-god who invents electric cars and moves to Mars.

Tesla controls two-thirds of the multibillion-dollar electric vehicle market it pioneered and is valued at a cool $1 trillion. That has made Musk the richest private citizen in history, at least on paper.

The tech entrepreneur Elon Musk revealed earlier this year that he has Asperger`s syndrome while appearing on the US comedy sketch series Saturday Night Live (SNL). But Musk has spent a lifetime defying the haters, now, it seems, he`s finally in a position to put them in their place.

Many people are described as larger than life, but few deserve it.

How many of us truly exceed our life span? How many will make it into the digital textbooks our spacefaring descendants will study?

As Shakespeare observed in Julius Caesar, it`s far easier to be remembered for doing evil than doing good. How many will leave a mark on the world – much less the universe – for their contributions rather than their crimes?

A few short years ago, Musk was roundly mocked as a crazy con artist on the verge of going broke. Now, this shy South African with Asperger`s syndrome, who escaped a brutal childhood and overcome personal tragedy bends governments and industry to the force of his ambition.

To Musk, his vast fortune is a mere side effect of his ability not just to see but to do things others cannot, in arenas where the stakes are existential. «He was raised in a tough environment and born with a very special brain,» says Antonio Gracias, Musk`s close friend of two decades, who have held seats on the boards of Tesla and Space X.

99% of people in that situation don`t come out of it. Some small percentage come out of it with the ability he has to make great decisions under extraordinary pressure and the never-ending drive to change the course of humanity.

Consumer Spending in November and December could grow as much as 11,5% and hit an all-time high

The times we are living in are far from «normal.» But we cannot blame an invisible virus for all that is happening right now. The question for retailers now is how this holiday season will look like?

Online spending on Black Friday 2021 decreased for the first time ever. According to Adobe Analytics, online shoppers spent a total of $8,9 billion, and that is down a little bit from last year’s $9 billion.

It can be many reasons for the dip, but Adobe believes it can be caused by an uptick in early spending, as some stores started sales and promotions as early as October. Shoppers are also being strategic in their gift shopping, buying much earlier in the season and being flexible about when they shop to make sure they get the best deals.

Black Friday traffic in stores also dropped -28,3% from pre-pandemic levels. Cyber Monday did also have a bad day and dropped for the first time ever. Cyber Monday online sales drop -1,4% from last year to $10,7 billion.

Adobe expects the entire holiday season will see record-breaking e-commerce activity, as shoppers spread out their dollars over more days. Adobe anticipates digital sales from November 1st, to December 31st will hit $207 billion which would represent record gains of 10%.

FedEx forecasts Monday will be one of the highest volume e-commerce days of the 2021 holiday season as it prepares to deliver an estimated 100 million more packages than it did from Black Friday to Christmas in 2019.

According to National Retail Federation, the holiday season will be fine. Spending in November and December could grow as much as 11,5% compared with the same period a year ago. This is much higher than many retail analysts themselves had predicted.

Sales in November and December can hit an all-time high of between $834,4 billion and $859 billion. In other words; we`re on the path for a record holiday season. Omicron can destroy the holiday season, but it can also help.

Instead of taking a trip by plane to other places, consumers will spend their money on Target or Macy`s. That will boost consumer demand, helped by higher wages and inflation. A lockdown will increase online sales and put more pressure on FedEx. People want packages no matter what.

Facebook changes its name to Meta

The social media universe is about to change. Facebook is still the King, but they face competition. One of them is Trump and his new Media company that will launch next month. But the internet itself will also change. That`s why Facebook change its name.

At the annual Connect conference on Thursday, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook will change its name to «Meta.» But note that it is not the app, but the company that is changing the name.

The name is meant to evoke the new focus on building the metaverse, what Meta envisions as the natural evolution of the internet where users interact using all sorts of devices from AR to VR and even the best Android phones.

One of the main reasons why Zuckerberg is doing this is to separate the company from the social media app, and better envoke the various platforms and projects Meta is involved with beyond Facebook.

Facebook is more than just a social media app, and therefore the change to Meta. This is similar to what Google did when they changed their company name from Google to Alphabet. Facebook`s vision is to connect people whether through WhatsApp, Instagram, or its VR platform and their popular Oculus Quest 2. So, it`s not just a social media company anymore.

Alphabet changed its name and made its businesses cleaner and more accountable. So is Meta. Reality Labs, which is responsible for the company`s VR/AR efforts, will be reported separately from the company’s other products. This will allow investors to better track the progress being made as Meta continues to advance these experiences.

It has been a lot of noise around Facebook recently, and they are accused of having a harmful effect on teens. Changing the company name from Facebook to Meta won’t change anything. Facebook as a social app will remain the same.

That being said; Facebook is NOT DANGEROUS or HARMFUL. People are!
