The State of Today’s Media Landscape, the 2016 Election and The Effects of Brexit; C-Suite TV’s Executive Perspectives October programming talks about the changes in today’s media landscape and Ireland as one of the most business friendly economies.
NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwired – Oct 25, 2016) – Executive Perspectives, one of the top online business shows on C-Suite TV, has announced its October programming. Executive Perspectives will feature one-on-one interviews with Nancy Gibbs, Editor-in-Chief, TIME and Barbara Jones, Consul General of Ireland in New York.
Nancy Gibbs, Editor-in-Chief of TIME, talked about a number of issues surrounding the media today — among them, the importance of constantly having to evolve, producing premium content, the state of the 2016 election cycle, and the public distrust of institutions, including the media.
TIME was founded in 1923 by Henry Luce, a visionary and media and digital disruptor on his own right. Since then, the magazine has gone through several transformations, including going from an American institution to a global one and from print to digital. Their steady approach to creativity and storytelling have been stalwarts in the publishing industry and this is reflected in how they reach their audience, the quality of the content they provide and their investment in the next generation of journalists. Gibbs says this is an “expensive investment, but we believe in it.”
She also addressed the current public distrust of the media that has risen during this highly charged political climate. Gibbs believes many journalists enter the profession with a certain level of idealism, one that makes them shine a light into dark corners and expose corruption and injustice, but the level of distrust remains. She believes part of that distrust in institutions like the media, churches, and financial entities are a direct result of people becoming disappointed when democracy doesn’t work for them or fails to make their lives better.
Regardless of all the changes taking place, TIME plans to continue evolving and investing in the next generation of journalists in order to remain on the cutting edge.
Barbara Jones, Consul General of Ireland in New York, talked about the relationship between the United States and Ireland, the impact of Brexit on the Irish people and what the recent ruling against Apple in regards to taxation means for future business investments.
According to Forbes, Ireland is one of the most business friendly environments in Europe. That, along with access to the European market, a corporate tax rate of 12.5% that they control and a strong ROI, makes Ireland a prime target for those looking to conduct business overseas. Jones describes the U.S./Ireland transatlantic and economic relationship as “the most integrated and globalized relationship” both countries currently have, being matched job for job, pound for pound, and dollar for dollar.
Jones also talked about the impact Brexit might have on the only remaining English-speaking country in Europe. She expressed great confidence in the financial services industry being fully prepared to handle any surge in business, despite competition from Brussels, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, and Paris. On the negative side, a Brexit could increase the risk for tariffs and borders, since Northern Island is part of the United Kingdom.
She also addressed the recent ruling that ordered Apple to pay billions in taxes, calling the European Union Commission’s decision “inherently flawed.” She quickly pointed out that Ireland develops their own tax code and Parliament voted on it, and that perhaps a different forum, such as the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development), might be better equipped to handle any future taxation issues.
