Two out of the three Republicans vying to be U.S. president are Indian-Americans



Two out of the three Republicans who have announced their intention to run for U.S. president are Indian-Americans

Two out of the three Republicans who have announced their intention to enter the race to become U.S. president are Indian-Americans.

The latest to throw his hat in the ring, Vivek Ramaswamy, is a multimillionaire entrepreneur and author of the book “Woke, Inc”.

The 37-year-old was born in Ohio and studied at Harvard and Yale before earning his fortune.

But what are his chances of securing the Republican nomination?

Announcing his bid on February 21, he wants to launch a “cultural movement to create a new American dream” based on the “pursuit of excellence”.

He says “diversity is meaningless if there’s nothing greater that binds” people.

Vocal about his disdain for the corporate world’s so-called “wokeism” on racism and climate, Ramaswamy believes this hurts both businesses and the country.

He’s particularly opposed to environment, social and corporate governance initiatives, wants further action in higher education and a reduction of America’s dependence on China.

But, while Ramaswamy’s views have resonated with some, there are Indian-Americans who don’t agree with his politics and others who feel his campaign lacks depth.

He also lacks star status and is relatively unknown across the nation.

So it’s a tough battle ahead for Ramaswamy if he wants a shot at the White House. #trending #featured

What Australia can learn from NZ’s supermarket inquiry



Coles and Woolworths, two of Australia’s largest supermarket chains, are about to face a Senate inquiry that aims to scrutinise their market dominance and business practices.

The inquiry’s parallels with a past New Zealand investigation highlight the growing concern over the duopoly’s impact on consumers and smaller businesses.

The Senate inquiry, set to begin next month, comes as a response to mounting public pressure and allegations of anti-competitive behavior in the grocery sector.

New Zealand example

Similar concerns led New Zealand to conduct its own inquiry into the supermarket industry back in 2019, resulting in recommendations for increased regulation and transparency.

The central question here is whether Coles and Woolworths wield too much power in the Australian market, potentially stifling competition and limiting choices for consumers.

With the New Zealand example as a cautionary tale, many are wondering if this inquiry will result in meaningful changes to the Australian grocery landscape.

Elon Musk: Nikki Haley’s ‘campaign is dead’



Elon Musk has thrown a verbal jab at former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, declaring her political campaign as “dead” on X.

The unexpected comment from the Tesla and SpaceX CEO has ignited a new wave of discussion within the political sphere, leaving many wondering about the implications for Haley’s political future.

In a tweet that garnered significant attention, Musk criticized Haley’s recent policy stance, writing, “Nikki Haley’s campaign is dead on arrival if she continues to ignore the urgency of climate change.

We need leaders who prioritize the planet’s future.” The tech mogul’s remarks come as Haley, a prominent Republican figure, has been exploring the possibility of running for president in the upcoming election cycle.

Musk’s statement has reignited the debate over climate change within the Republican Party, with many conservatives emphasizing economic interests over environmental concerns.

This raises questions about whether Musk’s endorsement or critique could influence the GOP’s stance on climate issues and potentially impact the 2024 presidential race.
