round out the year:
-> Uber sells its self-driving car section, and Softbank sells robot company Boston Dynamics. What can we infer from these moves about the state of the tech sector?
-> Reports show income inequality rising since 1975 has resulted in $47 trillion additional income accruing to the top 10%, and that trickle-down economics doesn't work as intended
-> Global emissions fall by 7% this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic: could we do this with a positive shift to decarbonisation? And a new study suggests that the land sink of CO2 may be weakening.
Take a listen!
