    Blue Origin to launch first sightseeing trip to space
    On Wednesday, May 5th, it was reported that Blue Origin, Jeff Bezos’s rocket company, will start selling tickets to space tourists for a sightseeing trip on its New Shepard spacecraft. The wealthy are especially welcomed on board the rocket. Bezos himself hints at that in a promo video.
    Blue Origin keeps the cost of tickets a secret. According to the company’s representatives, details will be given to potential clients after leaving their contact information (a full name and an email) on Blue Origin’s official website.
    The promo video published on the website features Jeff Bezos heading to the landing site of New Shepard after a test flight. At the end, the video says that the time has come.
    To find out the price of one seat on that first mission, users should be registered on the website. The company announced that it can take six passengers to space at once. The previous trials showed that the capsule can go above 100km.
    The release of the promo video triggered a 3% plunge in Virgin Galactic Holdings shares. It is suggested that the drop came as a result of possible competition between Bezos’s Blue Origin and the company of British entrepreneur Richard Branson. Analysts assume that the race for dominance in the niche segment of space suborbital tourism will pick up steam shortly.

    Bitcoin to rocket to $250,000 within five years
    Analysts continue to surprise the market with staggering bitcoin price projections. According to Morgan Creek Capital Management CEO Mark Yusko, the price of the first digital currency could reach $250,000 per coin in the next five years.
    The head of Morgan Creek Capital Management compared bitcoin's explosive rally to the growth of such IT giants as Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google. It took them 15-20 years to hit a market capitalization of $1 trillion, while the first cryptocurrency succeeded in a shorter period of time.
    Morgan Creek Capital’s CEO is confident that BTC will rival gold in terms of monetary value. At the moment, gold's monetary value is $4 trillion, and bitcoin is expected to reach this level in the short term.
    Yusko believes that along with high-yielding currencies such as BTC and Ethereum, there are “useless” ones, including Dogecoin (DOGE). “They’re just utility tokens that have no underlying value, or use case, and they’ll eventually disappear,” he noted.
    Notably, Mark Cuban has recently predicted that the price of Doge could advance to $1. The billionaire is calling attention to the meme-based cryptocurrency as a means of payment for its ability to handle transactions. Earlier, Kevin O'Leary, an investor and "Shark Tank" co-host, noted that he viewed BTC as digital gold, and Ethereum as digital silver.

    US companies to buy back stocks worth $209 billion
    According to MarketWatch with reference to the report from research firm EPFR, in April 2021, several US corporations announced stock repurchases worth $209 billion. Analysts suppose that this reading is the second largest after the Trump administration’s tax overhaul.
    In June 2018, after the tax reform conducted by then-President Donald Trump, stock repurchases totaled $218 billion.
    Notably, Donald Trump slashed the corporate tax rate to 21%. Winston Chua, an analyst at research firm EPFR, said that in May, most companies continued repurchasing their stocks. Experts suppose that this tendency will take place for several weeks and then, it will come to an end.
    “Historically, share buybacks have a high correlation to the S&P 500 index,” Chua told MarketWatch. “But it’s not a pace that can be sustained.”
    Estimates provided by EPFR unveiled that in recent months, buybacks have been climbing along with the S&P 500. On April 29, it reached its new high, jumping by 11.9% in the year.

    Fuel prices spike after Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack
    According to reliable sources, including CNN, Bloomberg, and The Washington Post, a ransomware attack was launched on Colonial Pipeline's computer systems. DarkSide is believed to be responsible for compromising the company's networks.
    The hacker group is suspected of having ties to Russia, a former senior US cybersecurity official said. Other sources claim that DarkSide is a ransomware group based in Eastern Europe.
    A massive cyberattack on Colonial Pipeline’s network happened on May 6th. On the following day, the company had to halt its system operations. Later it became known that hackers stole 100GB of data and locked computer systems, pending the payment of a ransom. The exact amount of the payoff was not disclosed.
    Bloomberg claims that the accident will trigger a surge in fuel prices in the US. Last Friday, May 7th, the price per gallon was $2.96. The news agency suggests that at the start of the summer season, the price will swell to $3 per gallon, the level unseen since October 2014.
    Everything will now depend on how long Colonial Pipeline’s network downtime lasts. The pipeline operator has not outlined the system restoration date yet.

    SpaceX to launch moon mission funded by Dogecoin
    Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that SpaceX would launch the "DOGE-1 Mission to the Moon" in the first quarter of 2022. The company will accept meme-inspired cryptocurrency Dogecoin as full payment for the lunar payload. "SpaceX launching satellite Doge-1 to the moon next year – Mission paid for in Doge – 1st crypto in space – 1st meme in space", Musk said in a tweet.
    SpaceX Vice President of Commercial Sales Tom Ochinero noted that DOGE-1 "will demonstrate the application of cryptocurrency beyond Earth orbit and set the foundation for interplanetary commerce." In the long term, this will "set the foundation for interplanetary commerce", Ochinero said. "SpaceX is going to put a literal Dogecoin on the literal moon," Musk wrote.
    DOGE-1 will fly on a Falcon 9 rocket, the satellite owned by the Canadian company Geometric Energy Corporation (GEC) in the first quarter of 2022. As part of the DOGE-1 mission, a payload "will obtain lunar-spatial intelligence from sensors and cameras on-board with integrated communications and computational systems."
    Dogecoin has soared dramatically amid such news. Last week, from May 3 to May 8, it reached a high of $0.69. Earlier, the price of the token rose to a record high of $0.73 but later fell by 30%. It declined when Musk hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live during which he admitted Dogecoin was "a hustle".

    Boeing’s 737 Max aircraft faces new technical problems
    About six months after the US regulatory authorities allowed Boeing’s 737 Max to resume flights, the liner turned out to be under close scrutiny again. On May 12, it became known that the aircraft had faced a number of problems related to updated equipment.
    In April 2021, flights of over 100 Boeing 737 Max 24 airplanes were halted following the discovery of a potential electrical problem. Technical difficulties resulted in disruption to aircraft supplies. According to representatives of Boeing and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), this problem is currently being addressed.
    Many experts claim the 737 Max was allowed back into service prematurely. The aviation concern needs to completely remedy issues that could lead to fatal crashes, experts emphasize. According to Boeing and the FAA, the problem of defective engineering first became apparent during the tests of a 737 Max 8. It turned out that the electrical power systems on the aircraft did not work correctly. The fault stemmed from poor electrical bonding, which affected the efficiency. Experts suppose that some of the aircraft's components such as the pilots' main instrument panel and a standby power control unit were improperly grounded.
    FAA experts note that this could have a negative effect on the operation of Boeing 737 Max’s certain systems. The worst-case suggests critical situations, preventing continued safe flight and landing. Experts are worried that over time, other 737 Max aircraft may have similar problems. As a result, the aviation regulator issued an Airworthiness Directive for Boeing. The document states that the company's airplanes with malfunctioning equipment should be modified prior to operation.

    Moody's: Aging population to hinder global economic growth
    Moody's analysts warn that population aging is highly likely to dampen economic growth in the near future. According to preliminary estimates, global GDP will shrink by 0.9 percentage points (p.p.) year-on-year in the next five years. Interestingly, the fastest aging populations are expected to be those located primarily in Europe
    Analysts at Moody's predict a considerable drop in global growth in the next 10 years due to an unprecedented demographic collapse. Despite the recovery of the global economy after the coronavirus crisis, its prospects are not bright. The aging population will increase the fiscal burden as spending on health and social security will rise exponentially.
    According to experts, the working-age population is expected to dwindle over the next 20 years, especially in Europe where the negative demographic trends persist. Many countries such as Germany, Japan, Italy, Spain, and South Korea, will face a decline in the working-age population. In compassion, in the US and the UK, this figure will increase but at a slower pace than in the past decade.
    The decline in the labor force will become a real challenge to the implementation of health care programs, social benefits, and social security. Previously, immigration was the driving force behind the strong economic growth of the working-age population in Europe. However, currently, its pace has slowed significantly.
    Strategists at Moody's believe that due to the lack of qualified workers, companies will have to tackle this issue by recruiting more women and older employees. What is more, to mitigate the negative effects of aging, experts suggest using innovative technologies. The integration of digital technologies, advanced robotics, and artificial intelligence after the pandemic could provide a boost to productivity growth at the workplace, the agency said in its report.
    According to the UN demographic forecast made two years ago, the world's population will grow to 8.5 billion people by 2030. Nowadays, this figure totals 7.8 billion. Since 1970, the median (average) age has been growing continuously and is now 31 years old. Taking into account the preliminary calculations, by 2030 it will reach 33 years, and by 2050 - 36.2 years. According to the WHO, the population of a country is considered old if the proportion of people aged 65 years or more exceeds 7%. This trend is rather noticeable in Russia and other emerging markets countries.

    WHO report: Covid-19 pandemic preventable disaster
    Scientists at the World Health Organization believe that it was possible to prevent the coronavirus pandemic. If the reaction of the world leaders had been more rapid, the world would have been able to save millions of lives.
    According to The Guardian with reference to the WHO research conducted by the former New Zealand prime minister Helen Clark and Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, a former president of Liberia, the coronavirus pandemic was a preventable disaster.
    The independent group of researchers has discussed the world leaders’ inaction on the coronavirus epidemic. Experts called on the state leaders not to repeat the previous mistakes and not to allow such catastrophes to happen. The WHO report unveiled the inconsistent preparations for the pandemic and insufficient funding for public assistance programs.
    One of the research managers describes February of 2020 as “a month of lost opportunity to avert a pandemic, as so many countries chose to wait and see”.
    “For some, it wasn’t until hospital ICU beds began to fill that more action was taken,” Helen Clark said. “And by then it was too late to avert the pandemic impact.”
    Ellen Johnson Sirleaf supposes that one of the reasons for such a catastrophe was an inadequate attitude to the situation. She thinks that it is of vital importance to learn from the past. “The situation we find ourselves in today could have been prevented. An outbreak of a new pathogen, Sars CoV-2 became a catastrophic pandemic that has now killed more than 3.25 million people,” the expert said.
    The coronavirus pandemic continues to threaten lives of people. That is why the independent group of researchers emphasizes the necessity of radical changes. The panel also calls for bringing heads of state together to oversee pandemic preparations, ensuring the finance and tools the world needs are in place. Specialists castigate the WHO’s actions, saying that “the World Health Organization was underpowered” when every day and every life counted.
    “The report was commissioned by the WHO director-general at the instigation of member states, who called at the World Health Assembly in May last year for an impartial review of what happened and what could be learned from the pandemic,” The Guardian reads.

    Elon Musk: Dogecoin “the future of currency”
    On May 18, Elon Musk, the founder of such corporations as Tesla and SpaceX, is actively participating in the development of Dogecoin. He supposes that this digital asset is quite promising and emphasizes his cooperation with the token’s creator.
    Notably, earlier, the management of Tesla decided not to accept bitcoin as a payment method for its electric vehicles. The high power consumption of BTC was the main reason to stop accepting it for car purchases. Representatives of Tesla emphasize that they are considering the use of other more effective virtual assets.
    According to Elon Musk, Dogecoin is one of such currencies as it requires less energy. Analysts at Business Insider suppose that such a decision is justifiable, as one Dogecoin transaction requires 6,000 times less energy than one BTC transaction. Notably, China accounts for the most energy costs associated with bitcoin. More than 75% of bitcoin mining around the world is done in China. The energy for mining and other operations is provided by Chinese coal-fired power stations.
    Previous announcements made by Elon Musk often had an influence on the Dogecoin price. In February 2021, when the CEO of Tesla bought some coins for his son, the price of Dogecoin jumped by ¼. Later, he said that “Dogecoin is the people's crypto”, boosting the asset even higher. As a result, at the beginning of May 2021, Dogecoin became the best instrument to invest in as its price skyrocketed by 260 times.

    Americans declare war on meat
    According to Bloomberg, Americans are massively abandoning beef because of worries of climate change. Perhaps, this approach will actually help minimize the environmental damage. However, meat producers and public catering companies complain about colossal losses.
    The intention of Americans to reduce beef in their regular diet poses a great threat to meat producers. Public catering will also face serious problems as the US is well known for its variety of beef dishes. Yet, with no demand for them, cafes and restaurants will incur losses as well. Notably, the trend of abandoning beef is becoming more and more popular. Many Americans compare the damage caused to the environment by beef consumption with the harm caused by the use of coal.
    Environmentalists say that cow breeding has a devastating impact on the climate. Cattle emit a huge amount of greenhouse gases during their lifetime due to the peculiarities of the digestive system. The calculations of the United Nations (UN) show that 14.5% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions are accounted for by livestock. Two-thirds of this amount is produced by cattle.
    A survey by the research company Datassentia reveals that more than half of Americans (70%) are willing to reduce their meat consumption and 58% of them prefer fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Importantly, the same view is shared by large educational institutions such as Harvard, Stanford, and the University of Kansas. These universities have joined a special program to transition to healthy and eco-friendly food.
    American farmers have already felt the impact of the protein war that has deprived them of a stable income. Investors also began to give money to startups that are engaged in making lab-grown meat. As a result, public catering, in particular meat restaurants, had to adapt to the new reality. Many of them had to wind down their businesses. Some were able to exclude meat dishes from the menu.
    According to a Kearney study, global meat sales will decline significantly by 2025. Many experts envisage the appearance of beef substitutes by 2040. They will take 33% of the entire product market. In most countries, millions of people have given up eating beef. Overall, the number of people abandoning beef is constantly growing.
