Britains rich list 2018
Hillary Hoffower, provided by Published 8:45 am PDT, Saturday, March 16, 2019 grinvalds/Getty Images The ultra-rich are investing more in travel as a way to show off their wealth, and that includes everything from sabbaticals to brief vacations. We teamed up with luxury travel agency Original Travel to find the hottest spots billionaires are heading to this year. A few classics like Great Britain made the list, but many billionaires are seeking adventure, from Rwanda to Bhutan. Investing in travel is becoming an increasingly popular way for the ultra-rich to signify their status — and they're extending it far beyond the classic idea of a vacation. Nowadays, the super-rich are taking months-long, multimillion-dollar trips to recharge or reconnect with family because they're often burnt out, Business Insider's Katie Warren previously reported.

But just where … [Read more...] about These are the 15 hottest destinations billionaires are traveling to in 2019
While not all the games on this list are Xbox exclusives, every game is at least better on Xbox than PlayStation, provided you're playing on a One X.CupheadStudio MDHR's Cuphead is as beautiful as it is challenging -- and it's very beautiful. Half bullet-hell shooter, half platformer, half classic boss rush... wait that's too many halves. Either way, Cuphead pulled in basically everyone with its charming, hand-drawn visuals that look like they're straight out of the 1930s. It then kept them around with tough-as-nails gameplay which somehow never feels unfair. It has some of the most memorable boss fights you're ever likely to have -- Cala Maria is our favorite -- but what will stay with you the most is that feeling of finally beating the one you get stuck on, 273 deaths later.Forza Horizon 4The Forza Horizon games have always second fiddle to the main series, but in Forza Horizon 4, Playground Games has made our favorite Forza game ever. Horizon 4 takes the arcadey gameplay and open … [Read more...] about The best games for Xbox One

Supported by news analysis Many companies invest in automation because the tax code encourages it, not because robots are more productive. ByEduardo Porter Mr. Porter is an economics writer for The Times. Feb. 23, 2019 When Bill Gates floated the idea of imposing a tax on robots a couple of years ago, Lawrence Summers, a former top economic adviser to President Barack Obama, called the Microsoft co-founder “profoundly misguided.” How do you even define a robot to tax it? And taxing innovation is a sure way to make a country poorer. Europe has also rejected the idea. In 2017 the European Parliament soundly defeated a draft motion, proposed by its committee on legal affairs, that recommended considering a tax on the owners of robots to fund … [Read more...] about Don’t Fight the Robots.

Jim Edwards, provided by Published 1:22 am PST, Sunday, January 27, 2019 REUTERS/Marko Djurica Unemployment is at record lows in both the UK and the US. But "involuntary" part-time work is at least 40% higher in both countries than it was 10 years ago. The structure of the labour market has fundamentally changed, and what we used to think of as "unemployment" has been replaced by mass part-time work, much of it unwanted. "Gig economy" jobs are to blame, according to Rob Valletta of the San Francisco Fed. Britain just notched up yet another record-breaking low for unemployment, according to the government. Unemployment stayed at just 4%, while the number of people with jobs rose to 32.54 million, or 75.8%, "the highest since comparable estimates began in 1971," according to the UK's Office for National Statistics. But once again, the monthly jobs tally eclipsed how that miracle was achieved. "Headline" unemployment is only at a record low because of a 42% increase … [Read more...] about Unemployment is low only because ‘involuntary’ part-time work is high
