WE’RE LIVING THROUGH a modern business version of Dickens’ best of times, worst of times maxim. On the credit side of the ledger, endless data points and innovative collaborations offer ways to unlock insights. On the debit side, despite a booming economy there’s an inherent suspicion of big business and its motivations. For three years we’ve been trying to harness the former to cure the latter. The Just 100 represents a novel attempt to bring transparency to corporate America and encourage practices that forge a sustainable form of capitalism, the greatest system for creating prosperity that the world has ever known. The key partner here: Just Capital, a nonprofit research firm started by hedge fund heavyweight Paul Tudor Jones (full disclosure: I’m a board member at Just Capital). Just Capital is one…

in a fight with the fed the white house wins

THE FEDERAL RESERVE backed off its plans for aggressive interest rate hikes next year after President Donald Trump relentlessly and personally bashed chairman Jerome Powell—a recent Trump appointee, no less. The Federal Reserve and its defenders stress the importance of its independence from outside interference. Otherwise, they maintain, election-worried Washington politicians and special interests would distort decision-making, which would end up doing real economic harm. Our central bank has done a remarkable job over the years creating an aura that those who attack it are either ignoramuses or cranks outside the boundaries of respectable and responsible opinion. This achievement comes in the face of several major blunders, most notably the terrible inflation of the 1970s and early 1980s, and the lead-up to the crisis of 2008–09. Nonetheless, the reality is that if the…

Aska Atera Bâtard Blue Hill Bouley at Home Daniel Del Posto Eleven Madison Park The Four Seasons Gotham Bar and Grill Gramercy Tavern The Grill Jean-Georges La Grenouille Le Bernardin Le Coucou Majorelle Manhatta Marea The Modern Per Se The new Bouley at Home serves up ingenious, creative dishes with French and Asian influences in a sleekly modern setting: You sit at counters, watching and chatting with the chefs as they prepare and serve the food in a fun and informal atmosphere. Le Coucou is a Gallic gem that will sweep you off your feet with French classics that are pure joy. Manhatta is more a constellation than a Four Star; the spectacular view (the 60th floor of the former Chase building) is dwarfed only by the culinary delights within, such as the sublime soufflé with butterscotch sauce. The Four Seasons closed in 2016, but it has reopened and is an…

TOP YOUTUBE EARNERS BRAND PARTNERSHIPS, a clothing line, millions of fans: What was once solely the province of athletes and A-listers now includes “Markiplier,” one of the world’s highest-earning YouTubers, who hauled in $17.5 million over our 12-month scoring period. The Hawaii native (real name: Mark Fischbach) launched his YouTube channel in 2012 when he was a biomedical-engineering student at the University of Cincinnati. He was going through tough times: He’d broken up with his girlfriend, been laid off from his desk job and had an adrenal-gland tumor removed that surgeons found when they went to take out his appendix. “A whole bunch of things happened that made me feel like I didn’t have any control in my life, so I had to do something,” says Fischbach, 29, who now lives in Los Angeles.…

1. RYAN TOYSREVIEW $22 MIL Ryan’s just like every other 7-year-old: He loves Legos, trains, cars—and his 17 million followers. His latest mini-mogul move: a line of collectibles and more, now selling at Walmart. 2. JAKE PAUL $21.5 MIL The boisterous younger brother of controversial Logan (No. 10) earned a career-best income from his thriving merchandise business. He attracted more than 3.5 billion views of his rap songs and goofy pranks over our scoring period. 3. DUDE PERFECT $20 MIL This five-man sports crew (Coby and Cory Cotton, Garrett Hilbert, Cody Jones and Tyler Toney) specializes in feats of dexterity and intricate trick shots—say, hurling Ping-Pong balls to trigger domino-falls of Oreos, which garnered 175 million views. 4. DANTDM $18.5 MIL Last year’s top earner at $16.5 million—Daniel Middleton, a British gamer who specializes in Minecraft—has been playing on-camera for six…

POPULATION: 39.5 MILLION 2017 GROSS STATE PRODUCT: $2.7 TRILLION (3% GROWTH) GSP PER CAPITA: $69,477 (RANKS NO. 8 NATIONWIDE) NUMBER OF BILLIONAIRES: 150 RICHEST: LARRY ELLISON $58.5 BILLION AT 74, LARRY ELLISON, the feisty cofounder of Oracle, remains deeply engaged in Silicon Valley’s trench warfare. In October he picked a fight with Amazon, teasing it for relying on Oracle to store its data rather than using its own competing services. (Amazon executives hastened to say it’s increasingly doing less business with Oracle.) Ellison has good reason to tout his company. Yes, its stock is in a funk, underperforming the Nasdaq’s 5% gain this year by 4 percentage points. But there’s a company doing worse: Facebook shares are down by more than a fifth in that time, erasing over $19 billion from the fortune of cofounder…
