How the pandemic highlights the path to agility
We identify the top-ten identifiable traits of the best companies in 2020. These have been made all the more stark by the challenges that the pandemic has thrown down. Among them are the ways in which many companies have become flatter, faster organisations made up of networked teams and empowered individuals. While ‘agility’ has previously been used in a nebulous way, this year has shown tangible ways to achieve both ‘agility’ and a ‘growth mindset’.

America's Racial Gap & Big Tech's Closing Window
The exponential growth of the digital economy is going to leave large chunks of minorities with little or no access to jobs. We conduct a bottom up societal study and it shows that 76% of Blacks and 62% of Hispanics could get shut out or be under-prepared for 86% of jobs in the US by 2045. If this digital racial gap is not addressed, in one generation alone, digitization could render the country’s minorities into an unemployment abyss.

Will Covid-19 push us towards digital payments ?
Whichever way the cloud and other technologies influence banking, they are unlikely to increase the use of pieces of paper or metal as a means of payment.
