Global Market developments include a surge in crude oil prices, Musk’s inquiry, the Fed’s non-partisan stance, Kpop music company’s revenue revival plan, and Nissan’s wage issues.

India grows

Hybe Co

Korean pop music agencies, managed by Hybe Co., are seeking revival strategies following an $8 billion equity rout due to declining album sales, focusing on new acts, distribution deals, and streaming boosts.

Australia’s largest pension fund
