Hong Kong (CNN Business) Unilever (UL) has become the latest major company to hop on the four-day work week bandwagon, lending credence to the idea that flexible working is here to stay. On Tuesday, the distributor of Lipton's tea, Dove soap and Ben & Jerry's ice cream announced it would test shorter working hours for all its employees in New Zealand, letting them decide which four days they'd prefer to work each week. The consumer giant has 81 staff members in the country, who will be allowed to work compressed schedules with full pay as the University of Technology Sydney in Australia helps track their progress. Unilever said that if all goes well, the company will consider whether to shake up its workflow on a wider scale. "We hope the trial will result in Unilever being the first global company to embrace ways of working that provide tangible benefits for staff and for business," Nick Bangs, managing director of Unilever New Zealand, said in a statement.

In November, Elon Musk's Tesla brought out a novelty tequila called "Tesla Tequila." Tesla CEO Elon Musk first used the word "Teslaquila" in a jokey April 2018 tweet that imagined Tesla had gone bankrupt. Tequila is a designation of of origin, meaning to call your drink "tequila" you have to produce it in Mexico. "[The] name 'Teslaquila' evokes the word Tequila ... (and) Tequila is a protected word," the CRT argued in November 2018. "We welcome Elon Musk and the Tesla tequila brand."

"Vaccine optimism, impressive Chinese factory data and the prospect of continuing fiscal and monetary stimulus is keeping the mood upbeat," CityIndex analyst Fiona Cincotta said. Global equity markets rose on Tuesday, extending the record-breaking gains of the previous month, after strong factory data pointed to a robust recovery in China, while progress on more vaccine candidates reinforced the optimism of the past few weeks, although oil slipped. "After a phenomenal November run-up European markets are broadly resuming gains at the start of December, a traditionally strong month for equities," CityIndex analyst Fiona Cincotta said in a note. "Vaccine optimism, impressive Chinese factory data and the prospect of continuing fiscal and monetary stimulus is keeping the mood upbeat." "Nonetheless this latest fracas does not bode well for collective cohesion in 2021 as vaccine optimism abounds and producers anticipate a strong recovery," she said.

London (CNN Business) Debenhams, Britain's biggest department store chain, is permanently closing its UK operations. Debenhams, which collapsed into administration in April for the second time in 12 months, said in a statement on Tuesday that it has been unable to find a buyer and will begin to wind down operations. Its 124 UK outlets and online store — employing 12,000 people — will trade to clear stock, after which they will close if no other offers for the business have been received. The future of its 45 franchised stores, which are primarily in the Middle East, south east Asia and eastern Europe, also depends on whether a buyer can be found for the UK business. Earlier on Tuesday, sports retailer JD Sports Fashion confirmed that it had ended discussions about buying Debenhams.

The Amazon CEO was an early Airbnb investor, participating in Airbnb's Series A and Series B rounds in 2010 and 2011, respectively. A spokesperson for Bezos Expeditions did not respond to Business Insider's request for comment on its Airbnb investment. While Bezos' payday will likely net him millions of dollars, it will hardly make a difference for the richest man, whose net worth tops $186 billion. Beyond his substantial Amazon stake, Bezos is a prolific investor, with early investments in Google, Uber, and Twitter. Bezos was also an early investor in Business Insider, though he has since sold his stake in the company.
