    Finland’s Sanna Marin, 34, will be the world’s youngest sitting prime minister

    Sanna Marin, Finland's 34-year-old transportation minister, was selected today (Dec. 8) as the country's prime minister, making her the youngest leader to ever hold the job, and the world's youngest sitting PM. Marin will be taking over from Antii Rinne, who resigned from the position last week after just six months on the job, following controversy over his handling of a postal strike. Like Rinne, Marin is a member of the Social Democratic Party, the largest in Finland's five-member ruling coalition. Finland's government is now led by these five party leaders.

    Beijing Pushes for Removal of Foreign Tech in More State Offices

    The Chinese government is taking further steps to remove foreign technology from state agencies and other organizations, a clear sign of determination for more independence amid escalating tensions with the U.S. Beijing will likely replace as many as 20 million computers at government agencies with domestic products over the next three years, according to research from China Securities. More than 100 trial projects for domestic products were completed in July, the brokerage firm said. The Financial Times newspaper said the Communist Party's Central Office earlier this year ordered state offices and public institutions to shift away from foreign hardware and software.

    Is Nokia Corporation (NOK) Going To Burn These Hedge Funds ?

    A duo of the best tools are hedge fund and insider trading signals. We have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the elite hedge fund managers can outclass the S&P 500 by a healthy amount (see the details here). Unlike the largest US hedge funds that are convinced Dow will soar past 40,000 or the world's most bearish hedge fund that's more convinced than ever that a crash is coming, our long-short investment strategy doesn't rely on bull or bear markets to deliver double digit returns.

    Jobs of the future are clustering in a handful of U.S. cities, study finds

    A new analysis of where "innovation" jobs are being created in the United States paints a stark portrait of a divided economy where the industries seen as key to future growth cluster in a narrowing set of places. Divergence in job growth, incomes and future prospects between strong-performing cities and the rest of the country is an emerging focus of political debate and economic research. It is seen as a source of social stress, particularly since President Donald Trump tapped the resentment of left-behind areas in his 2016 presidential campaign.

    The concept of objectivity is under attack at the Trump impeachment hearings

    Stanford Law School professor Pamela Karlan, an expert on voting law, was clearly horrified, responding, “I have a right to cast a secret ballot.” And Harvard Law School scholar Noah Feldman pointed out that not raising hands didn't indicate an answer but an objection to the question itself. McClintock's point was to undermine the witnesses' presentations by pointing out their personal politics. The implication is that they can't possibly offer a reliable interpretation of the law because they dislike Trump, and therefore their testimony can be dismissed as partisan rhetoric.

    Leave Pete Buttigieg’s McKinsey NDA Alone

    The fact that people would like to know what secrets Buttigieg has promised to keep for McKinsey doesn't place any obligation on McKinsey at all. McKinsey & Company is the sort of place that will always attract ambitious young people planning to move on to the next big thing. It's hard to see how the fact that having worked there is now causing one of them difficulties in a campaign for public office places any obligation on McKinsey.
