Largest stock exchange operators worldwide 2024, by market capitalization

May 15, 2024 | Stocks

The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is the largest stock exchange in the world, with an equity market capitalization of over 28 trillion U.S. dollars as of March 2024. The following three exchanges were the NASDAQ, the Euronext, and the Japan Exchange Group. 

What is a stock exchange?

A stock exchange is a marketplace where stockbrokers, traders, buyers, and sellers can trade in equities products. The largest exchanges have thousands of listed companies. These companies sell shares of their business, giving the general public the opportunity to invest in them. The oldest stock exchange worldwide is the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, founded in the late sixteenth century. 

Other functions of a stock exchange

Since these are publicly traded companies, every firm listed on a stock exchange has had an initial public offering (IPO). The largest IPOs can raise billions of dollars in equity for the firm involved. Related to stock exchanges are derivatives exchanges, where stock options, futures contracts, and other derivatives can be traded.

Voting intention in the United Kingdom 2017-2024

May 9, 2024 | Elections

As of May 2024, 48 percent of British adults would vote for the Labour Party in the next general election, due to be held on July 4, 2024, compared with 18 percent who would vote for the Conservative Party. The ruling Conservatives have trailed Labour in the polls throughout 2022 and 2023, with a huge gap emerging in September 2022 when Liz Truss came to power. Truss' short time as Prime Minister was widely seen as a disaster for the country and her party, and she was succeeded by Rishi Sunak as Prime Minister that October. Labour has maintained their lead in the polls since Sunak became Prime Minister, and would win the next general election based on the most recent polls. 

Sunak gambles on July election

On May 22, 2024, Rishi Sunak announced his decision to hold the next UK general election on July 4. Unlike many other democracies, general elections in the UK have no fixed date, with the power to call one resting with the Prime Minister, although this must be done at least every five years. While the last election in 2019 was held in the winter, this was mainly due to the political crisis surrounding the UK's exit from the EU. Sunak's surprise announcement came shortly after some positive economic figures were released in the UK. Sunak may hope this will improve his poor job ratings and perhaps boost the government's approval. The job of catching Labour in the polls by July may be a long shot for the Conservatives, especially as no ground was made up in 2023. 

Sunak's five pledges - 2023

After a tough 2022, in which Britain suffered through its worst cost of living crisis in a generation, the economy was consistently identified as the main issue facing the country, just ahead of healthcare. To respond to these concerns, Rishi Sunak started 2023 with five pledges; halve inflation, grow the economy, reduce national debt, cut NHS waiting times, and stop small boats. Over a year on from this announcement, just one pledge can be said to be realized, with CPI inflation falling from 10.1 percent at the start of the year to 2.3 percent by April 2024. There is some ambiguity regarding the success of some of the other pledges. The economy shrank in the last two quarters of 2023 but has since started to grow again. National debt has increased slightly, while small boat arrivals are down from 2022, but still higher than in most other years. The pledge to cut NHS waiting times was not fulfilled either, with the number of people awaiting treatment rising in 2023.

Average gasoline and diesel prices in the U.S. 2022-2024

May 21, 2024 | Prices, Marketing, and Trade

The average price for regular gasoline in the United States stood at 3.62 U.S. dollars per gallon on May 13, 2024. This compared to a diesel price of 3.93 U.S. dollars per gallon. Prices decreased slightly in the second week of May, which is also reflected in crude oil benchmarks.

Real price surge of 2022 and 2023 still below 2011 to 2014 prices

When looking at the real price of gasoline over time, U.S. drivers had to pay notably more in the years between 2011 and 2014. The surge in prices noted throughout 2022 and partly for 2023, which followed supply constraints, was still lower in terms of real U.S. dollars.

U.S. on lower-end spectrum of worldwide motor fuel prices

The U.S. has some of the lowest conventional motor fuel prices in the world. Although fuel prices are usually higher in high-income countries, the U.S. profits from its position as the world’s largest crude oil producer and can keep retail prices for oil products comparatively low. For example, among high-income countries, prices for automotive premium gasoline (RON 95) were only lower in Russia and Saudi Arabia - countries where crude oil and oil product exports are in part restricted by sanctions, thus keeping domestic supply high.

Global brand value of Barbie from 2015 to 2024

May 21, 2024 | Toys

In 2024, the Barbie brand was valued at approximately 720 million U.S. dollars. The brand's value saw a noticeable uptick following the success of the Barbie movie. Barbie is a well-known toy doll invented by Ruth Handler and manufactured by American toy company Mattel. 

The Barbie Movie

Although the Barbie doll has existed for several decades, all eyes had been on the brand even more since the announcement of the Barbie movie, featuring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling. Zoomers and millennials in the United States were especially aware of the existence of the film. When asked in late July 2023, whether or not they intended to go see the movie, the majority said no; however, a considerable share of moviegoers in the United States had planned to watch “Barbie” in theaters.


Mattel, which is responsible for a number of toy brands, including Barbie, Hot Wheels, and Fisher-Price, is one of the world’s largest toy companies. In 2023, the company generated close to five and a half billion U.S. dollars in revenue, which is a noticeable increase compared to the figures recorded between 2018 and 2020. Just over half of Mattel’s revenue was generated through its North America segment.
