The lost Thanksgiving

Weekend Reading

Thanksgiving this year will be like no other: Americans are scrapping flights and curbing driving plans while health officials urge them to skip travel altogether. But holiday plans are the least of the nation's worries: America's hospital workers are overwhelmed as infections in the world's worst-hit country skyrocket, and the U.S. failure to restrain the pandemic has now claimed a quarter million lives. European hospitals are also buckling, and in Asia, Hong Kong is bracing for its fourth wave. 

Bloomberg is mapping the pandemic globally and across America. For the latest news, sign up for our Covid-19 podcast and daily newsletter.

Assuming President Donald Trump eventually agrees to relinquish power after having lost the U.S. election, President-elect Joe Biden will be the oldest president in U.S. history. Biden's cabinet may shape the economic future of young Americans, who are 23% poorer than three decades ago. 

Boeing's 737 Max, which crashed twice, killing 346 people, is coming back, now that regulators contend its fatal defects have been remedied. Boeing's future may depend largely on whether travelers trust the troubled plane enough to step aboard. The mother of a pilot killed when his 737 Max plummeted into the Java Sea called the return premature.

Tesla will soon be the biggest-ever addition to the S&P 500, and if its shares post another big rally, founder Elon Musk could pass Bill Gates to become the world's second-richest person (behind Jeff Bezos). Morgan Stanley, for the first time in a long while, rates Tesla a buy.

Japan's wild bears are heading for town since there are fewer humans to scare them off (and it's been a bad year for acorns). Nepal is trying to unfreeze the economy around Mount Everest. And to fight global warming, the world's richest families have joined a secret club on green investing.

Prince Andrew Helped This Bank Woo Dictators
