ByPatrick McGeehan Photographs byJohn Taggart June 25, 2018 ATLANTIC CITY — The last time there was so much hype about the future of this troubled seaside resort, Donald J.

After years of decline, it shut down in 2016, seemingly consigned to symbolize the ruinous excess here during the Trump era. But now, less than two years later, the old Taj, stripped of its faux minarets, concrete elephants and … [Read more...] about Can Sports Betting Do for Atlantic City What Donald Trump Couldn’t?

The headquarters of Huawei Technologies, the world’s largest maker of telecommunications equipment, sprawls across two square miles in the global manufacturing megalopolis of Shenzhen, China. At the center of its campus, surrounded by hulking office buildings of red brick and gray stone, sits a meticulously landscaped artificial pond. On the day I visited, two black swans glided across the water—fitting omens for the trajectory of Chinese technological power. Most Americans have never heard of Huawei (pronounced HWA-way), but the company operates in 170 countries, employs 180,000 people, and in 2017 had revenue of $92 billion. These days it’s leveraging its telecom experience to corner what it sees as the next big thing: solar energy.
