    “Airbnb can’t sit at Slack’s lunch table” — Away’s humane layoffs. The alphabet-shaped economic recovery. Airbnb/Slack’s debt drama.

    “Airbnb can’t sit at Slack’s lunch table” — Away’s humane layoffs. The alphabet-shaped economic recovery. Airbnb/Slack’s debt drama.

    Away Luggage is sadly laying off staff because you’re not traveling right now (and don’t need their suitcases), but the extent of benefits and way they announced it reveal a major change in HR strategy. Airbnb is raising $1B debt and Slack's raising $750M to get through the corona-conomy, but the 2 different paths reflect 2 different situations. The stock market’s recovery could look like a “V”...or a “U”...or an “L” — we’re breaking down all the options alphabetically.

    🍝 “Olive Garden’s single Gnocchi problem” — Lear’s open-the-factory blueprint. Uber’s gig work jobs board. Olive Garden’s survival plan.

    🍝 “Olive Garden’s single Gnocchi problem” — Lear’s open-the-factory blueprint. Uber’s gig work jobs board. Olive Garden’s survival plan.

    Uber’s latest “Work Hub” moves are making it the ultimate default job board for the gig economy. The Olive Garden revealed shockingly big sales declines (and 1 huge sales increase), but we think its future is in emulating clothing retail with omnichannel sales. Lear probably made the seat in whatever car you’re driving in — and it’s also whipped up a blueprint for every company’s post-corona-conomy back-to-work plans.

    🐉 “Jamie Dimon = The last Targaryen” — Buffett’s “smart money” stock sale. Constellation’s booze blueprint. JPMorgan’s last dragon.

    🐉 “Jamie Dimon = The last Targaryen” — Buffett’s “smart money” stock sale. Constellation’s booze blueprint. JPMorgan’s last dragon.

    Warren Buffett noticed something in airport data from the TSA that made him rethink his airline investments, so we’re looking at the smart money’s moves. Constellation Brands’ liquors are having a corona-conomy moment, but we’re more fascinated by the powerful slide #12 in its earnings deck. And we’re comparing JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon’s experience from the ‘08 financial crisis to the current one — because he’s the last big bank chief still around from the days of Lehman Brothers.

    🕹️ “Video games are social media now” — WeWork’s $3B is cancelled. Google’s Big Data rebrand. Sony’s PS4 seesaw situation.

    🕹️ “Video games are social media now” — WeWork’s $3B is cancelled. Google’s Big Data rebrand. Sony’s PS4 seesaw situation.

    WeWork was supposed to get a $3B lifeline from its biggest investor this month, but that just got cancelled because its core business model is a public health risk. The surge in video game demand from companies like Sony in the corona-conomy actually marks an evolution in the term “social media.” And Google’s latest Big Data project could help rebrand the whole Big Tech industry.

    ♨️ “The greatest fraud in coffee history” — Luckin plummets 76%. YouTube will rip off TikTok. Altria’s Juul collusion.

    ♨️ “The greatest fraud in coffee history” — Luckin plummets 76%. YouTube will rip off TikTok. Altria’s Juul collusion.

    China’s Luckin Coffee lost $5B in value in 5 minutes on word the company made up its numbers last year. YouTube pulls a Facebook-on-Snapchat and copies TikTok because it wants mobile video. And Marlboro-owner Altria is being told by the government it should reverse that whole Juul investment it made — because it was really a collusion deal.

    On today’s pod… Carnival Cruises was already facing a no-one-is-cruising-right-now moment — but now its Panama corporate citizenship is messing with its desperate bailout needs. HBO just made a critical hire for CEO of Warnermedia during the most important month for streaming of the year. And McCormick spices dipped 2% after its earnings because it’s facing what we’re calling the “seesaw situation” in the corona-conomy
