SoftBank spent $900 million in investment banking fees in 2018. The only entity it lagged — the People's Republic of China.

SoftBank spent $900 million in investment banking fees in 2018, more than any company in at least a decade. The People's Republic of China is the only entity to outspend the Japanese tech conglomerate. SoftBank has primarily paid fees to investment bankers to raise capital, but it also executed many high profile investments in companies like WeWork and Cruise Automation.

G EORGE HERBERT WALKER BUSH, the 41st president of the United States, died on November 30 at age 94.

‘Christopher Robin’ Won’t Be Released in China Amid Censorship Crusade Against Winnie the Pooh

Just when you thought 2018 couldn’t get any stranger, Winnie the Pooh has become a polarizing political figure…in China? And it’s not because of his lack of pants, nor his habit of stealing honey from bees (what’s up with that, Pooh!), but because he apparently has a striking resemblance to the President of the People’s Republic of China, Xi Jinping. Because of that, a Christopher Robin China release has been denied by the country, as the Chinese government cracks down on all images of the sill...
