China’s Richest 2019: Growing Consumer Appetite Boosts Fortunes Of Nation’s Wealthiest

This story is part of Forbes’ coverage of China’s Richest 2019.

The headlines from China in the past year have been gloomy. Trade friction with the U.S. has risen, while GDP growth in the world’s second-largest economy slowed to a near three-decade low of 6%. Happily for the country’s wealthiest, however, there’s more good news than bad among the members of our list of China’s richest.

The total wealth of the 400 members of the China Rich List rose by more than a fifth from a year ago, to $1.29 trillion, as China’s consumers spent more on everything and spent more of it online. More than half the listees saw their fortunes climb in the past year, while a quarter saw their fortunes fall.

Dartmouth Tuck Loses Its Admissions Chief

Luke Anthony Peña, executive director of admissions and financial aid at Dartmouth Tuck School of Business, will leave that position on September 18 to return to Stanford University, where he served as director of MBA admissions at the Graduate School of Business from 2012 to 2017.

Two of those companies are LeavingTheBayArea.com and LeavingSoCal.com, started by Scott Fuller, a real estate broker now residing in Arizona. Fuller told Fox Business that he got the ideas for these companies by working with a lot of clients who were “getting fed up and tired of what’s happening in California.”

Huawei exits Australia sponsorship deal over ‘negative business environment’

Embattled Chinese telco Huawei exited its main sponsorship deal with rugby league’s Canberra Raiders Monday, citing a “negative business environment” after Australia blocked the company from its 5G wireless networks.

The Raiders were the tech giant’s first large-scale sporting sponsorship worldwide and they have backed the club for almost a decade, with their logo and name on the front of the playing kit.

But Huawei said in a statement that the “continued negative business environment is having a larger than originally forecasted impact on our planned revenue stream”, in explaining its decision to terminate the deal a year early.
