Digital Business Cards Slowly Spreading in Japan amid Virus Crisis


Tokyo, Sept. 5 (Jiji Press)–Businesses helping members of society exchange business cards through digital technology are starting to spread in Japan, in response to the novel coronavirus crisis.

With corporate sales activities shifting to video conferences, services offered by such companies allow people to hold meetings and negotiate business deals online after exchanging greetings with potential business clients, no matter where they are.

The paperless business cards, however, are relatively unknown and businesses still need to improve the cards’ user-friendliness, to help establish a new lifestyle of limiting interpersonal contact.

Teleconferencing systems have been in wider use among sales representatives and other workers at companies, as more and more people are working from home.

In June, Sansan Inc. <4443>, a major business card management service company, started a new service for corporations in which people send a URL link of their digital business

Hedge Fund Picks at Sohn 2019 Mostly Flopped After Selloff

(Bloomberg) — Only a few winners have emerged among the hedge-fund managers and short-sellers who pitched their top trade ideas at last year’s Sohn Investment Conference in Hong Kong, after markets were rocked by the coronavirus outbreak.

WT Asset Management’s Wang Tongshu is the clear standout, with his pick of Chinese e-commerce platform Pinduoduo Inc. benefiting as the pandemic accelerated a global shift to online shopping. It was the opposite result for Flowering Tree Investment Management’s Rajesh Sachdeva and Tybourne Capital Management’s Eashwar Krishnan, whose bullish bets on Indian banks turned sour as bad loan provisions surged and earnings slumped.

As some of the region’s top hedge fund managers gather again Wednesday in Hong Kong, this time virtually, here’s a look at how some of last year’s ideas fared:

Wang Tongshu, WT Asset Management

Mr. Powell, If You Want Higher Inflation, Give People Money

Frances Coppola, a CoinDesk columnist, is a freelance writer and speaker on banking, finance and economics. Her book “The Case for People’s Quantitative Easing” explains how modern money creation and quantitative easing work, and advocates “helicopter money” to help economies out of recession.

The Federal Reserve has just announced a change to its inflation targeting regime. Instead of shooting to hit 2% every year, it will aim to achieve 2% “on average” over an unspecified period of time. So, if inflation runs below target in 2020 and 2021 because of a pandemic-induced recession, the Fed might allow inflation to rise above 2% and stay there during 2022 and 2023, thus achieving an average of 2% from 2020 to 2024. The idea is that by allowing inflation to run “moderately” higher, the Fed could maintain low interest rates and quantitative easing [QE] long enough to achieve full employment, rather than starting
