No. 9: 3 Lunchtime Views/Reads

  1. Take a look at the tweet below. If you follow economic development across Africa, you have seen the referenced charts. All I will say about the paternalism in this tweet is that the reasons for optimism about Africa go back further than 60 years. Moving on.

  2. Scott Galloway, a professor at NYU, said that the only reason Marissa Mayer will not be fired from her CEO post at Yahoo is because she announced she is pregnant with twins. Adam Grant, a fellow professor at Wharton, should probably give him a call.
  3. Very interesting profile of Uber and its CEO Travis Kalanick. Warning: It is long. With the ongoing debate around the lack of people of color, I was glad to see that Ade Olonoh runs one of Travis’ portfolio companies. These Nigerians, sha. They are everywhere. Also, I need to read Atlas Shrugged.
