In 1985, Ivan Boesky reportedly told the graduates of the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley that greed was "healthy." Legend has it the sentiment and Boesky himself inspired the iconic character Gordon Gekko in the 1987 movie "Wall Street." Today, Boesky's name may no longer be synonymous with Wall Street millions or corporate greed. But in the early 1980s, Boesky was an investment banking titan who made hundreds of millions of dollars betting on corporate takeovers. Boesky reportedly became the highest-paid trader on Wall Street in 1985, according to the Associated Press.

President Donald Trump participates in a Thanksgiving teleconference with members of the United States Military, at the White House in Washington, DC, on November 26, 2020. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he will leave the White House if the Electoral College votes for President-elect Joe Biden, the closest he has come to conceding the Nov. 3 election, even as he reiterated his unfounded claims of massive voter fraud.

Republicans have wrongly created a narrative where white men see themselves as "victims" who are "under attack", according to Barack Obama. "That's a story that's being told and how you unwind that is going to be not something that is done right away," Obama said in a radio interview on Wednesday. Trump and the Republicans have won millions of votes partly by framing white American men as "victims" who are "under attack," according to former president Barack Obama. "What's always interesting to me is the degree to which you've seen created in Republican politics the sense that white males are victims," Obama told the Breakfast Club radio show. Trump won white men by a margin of around 31% in his 2016 election victory over Hilary Clinton, and performed particularly well among white men in rural areas.

Slideshow ( 3 images )With COVID-19 infections on the rise in many countries around the world, Olympics organisers have yet to decide whether to allow spectators into venues next year and if so, how many. Koike, speaking at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan, said organisers were still hopeful venues could be filled with spectators when the Olympics begin in July. Although Japan has largely avoided the huge numbers of COVID-19 infections seen in other countries, daily cases in Tokyo rose to records above 500 last week. “It is clear that the movement of people is having an impact on the increase in cases,” Koike said.

REUTERS/Joshua RobertsWASHINGTON (Reuters) - More prominent Republicans on Monday joined the call for President Donald Trump to end efforts to overturn his election defeat and allow President-elect Joe Biden to begin the formal transition to a new administration. Twenty days after Election Day, most members of Trump’s party still refused on Monday to refer to Biden as president-elect, or to question Trump’s insistence - without evidence - that he had only lost on Nov. 3 because of fraud. Republican Senator Rob Portman - co-chairman of Trump’s campaign in Ohio who rarely breaks with party leaders - said there was no evidence of widespread election fraud and called for the transition to begin. “It is now time to expeditiously resolve any outstanding questions and move forward,” Portman wrote in a Cincinnati Enquirer opinion column on Monday.
