Bloomberg Businessweek Celebrates 85th Anniversary, Chronicles the Most Disruptive Ideas of the Past 85 Years

Bloomberg Businessweek's 85th Anniversary Celebration - Arrivals

Bloomberg Businessweek Celebrated its 85th Anniversary with a huge bash at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City hosted by Seth Meyers. The festivities included a performance by Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett.

Gaga wowed in a cleavage bearing red-sequin Brandon V Maxwell gown.

Notable attendees included George Lucas, Henry Kissinger, Harvey Weinstein, Mort Zuckerman, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Martha Stewart, MSNBC host Ronan Farrow, Patrica Duff, Blackstone CEO Steve Schwarzman, Gayle King, J. Crew’s Mickey Drexler and Jenna Lyons.

Seth Meyers opened the event by saying, “I think tonight has a chance to be one of the best 85th anniversary parties mainly because I haven’t ever been to an 85th anniversary party before.”

Michael Bloomberg himself said, “Very few magazines make it to their 85th birthday. The magazine celebrates the innovators and the makers that make this world better.”

The magazine’s commemorative issue titled “85 Years, 85 Ideas” hit the newsstands on Friday. Bloomberg Businessweek editor Josh Tyrangiel wrote in an editor’s letter, “Having established our endurance, we’ve decided to celebrate our anniversary by largely ignoring it. It wouldn’t serve anyone to march through our greatest hits. We’d rather celebrate the impact of yours.”

The issue has a list of the 85 most disruptive ideas since it began publishing, one from each year. The jet engine (1958) topped the list when Pan Am inaugurated daily 707 service across the Atlantic.

At the bottom of the list was GDP (1937) which was first used in a research report presented to the U.S. Congress.
