The largest issue of Businessweek since 1999 is on newsstands on Friday.
It’s also the largest issue since Bloomberg purchased the magazine in 2009. At 212 pages, with more than 111 pages of ads, Bloomberg Businessweek’s “The Year Ahead: 2014” is a special, perfect-bound issue that is part of Bloomberg L.P.’s new global media franchise “The Year Ahead.”
Forty-five percent of the advertisers in the Nov. 18 issue are also new to the magazine.
The issue examines the major trends, disruptions, breakthrough products, innovations, and revolutions of the coming year. There’s analysis from Bloomberg writers as well as interviews with key CEOs on their predictions for what’s coming in finance, energy, technology, retail, defense & transportation, and health care.
There are stories from around the world and charts illustrating personalized pricing, banks and their troubles, the quest for same-day delivery, and more.
In addition, there’s a ranking of the world’s 600 biggest companies by market share within their 55 industries, and to impress friends, a tear-out card of information on how six industries are facing the year ahead.
