Daily insights from the experts, straight to your inbox. Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan will disband Haven, the joint venture aimed at lowering health care costs for their US employees, just three years after launching. The announcement Monday means the three major American companies admitted defeat in their attempt to address one of the most vexing and longstanding problems for employers and employees alike in the world's largest economy. Haven said on its website that the venture would end in late February, although the companies plan to "continue to collaborate informally to design programs tailored to address the specific needs of their own employee populations. Jeff Bezos's Amazon, Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway and financial giant JPMorgan Chase announced in January the plan to create a nonprofit health care plan to "provide US employees and their families with simplified, high-quality and transparent health care at a reasonable cost. The trio aimed to become a disruptor in the health care industry just as Amazon has in retail, using their combined data, technology, buying power and customer contacts to improve delivery while cutting costs.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Hun Sen announced on social media that Cambodia had extracted its first drop of crude oil from fields in the Gulf of Thailand following 30 years of delays. The government, which owns a 5 percent stake in the venture, signed an agreement with KrisEnergy in to develop more than 3, square kilometers of the Khmer basin in the gulf, known as Block A. Development of the field, which was originally expected to begin production last year, will proceed in phases, both sides said. Anti-corruption groups and senior officials from the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party CNRP applauded the milestone but were quick to demand transparent and efficient revenue management. Hun Sen has removed his political opposition and hobbled independent media and civil society, removing any means of ensuring accountability in his de facto one-party state. We hope that the money will be used to develop a real nation. He said the government should reassure people that the extraction of natural oil is being done according to high safety standards and is free from corruption.
