Company history

Forbes headquarters on 5th Avenue in Manhattan (now owned by New York University)
Forbes Building on Fifth Avenue in New York City (now owned by New York University)
B. C. Forbes, a financial columnist for the Hearst papers, and his partner Walter Drey, the general manager of the Magazine of Wall Street,[4] founded Forbes magazine in 1917.[5][6] Forbes provided the money and the name and Drey provided the publishing expertise. The original name of the magazine was Forbes: Devoted to Doers and Doings.[4] Drey became vice-president of the B.C. Forbes Publishing Company,[7] while B.C. Forbes became editor-in-chief, a post he held until his death in 1954. B.C. Forbes was assisted in his later years by his two eldest sons, Bruce Charles Forbes (1916–1964) and Malcolm Stevenson Forbes (1917–1990).
Bruce Forbes took over on his father's death, and his strengths lay in streamlining operations and developing marketing.[5] During his tenure, 1954–1964, the magazine's circulation nearly doubled.[5]
On Malcolm's death, his eldest son Malcolm Stevenson "Steve" Forbes Jr. (1947–) became President and Chief Executive of Forbes and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes magazine.[8] Between 1961 and 1999 the magazine was edited by James Michaels.[9] In 1993, under Michaels, Forbes was a finalist for the National Magazine Award.[10] In 2006, an investment group Elevation Partners that includes rock star Bono bought a minority interest in the company.[8][11] A 2009 New York Times report said: "40 percent of the enterprise was sold ... for a reported $300 million, setting the value of the enterprise at $750 million. According to Mark M. Edmiston of AdMedia Partners, 'It’s probably not worth half of that now.'"[12] In November 2013, Forbes Media, which publishes Forbes magazine, was put up for sale.[13]
Sales documents prepared by Deutsche Bank revealed that while Forbes is seeking price of over $400M, the 2012 EBITDA was only $15M.[14] Forbes sold a majority of itself to Asian investor group Integrated Whale Media Investments in July of 2014.[15]

Sale of headquarters and relocation to Jersey City

In January 2010, Forbes reached an agreement to sell its headquarters building located on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan to New York University. Terms of the deal were not publicly reported, but Forbes will continue to occupy the space under a five-year sale-leaseback arrangement.[16] The headquarters will move to the Newport section of Jersey City in 2014.[17][18]

Other publications

Apart from Forbes and its lifestyle supplement, Forbes Life, other titles include Forbes Asia and fifteen local language editions. Steve Forbes and his magazine's writers offer investment advice on the weekly Fox TV show Forbes on Fox and on Forbes On Radio. Other company groups include Forbes Conference Group, Forbes Investment Advisory Group and Forbes Custom Media. From the 2009 Times report: "Steve Forbes recently returned from opening up a Forbes magazine in India, bringing the number of foreign editions to 10." In addition, that year the company began publishing ForbesWoman, a quarterly magazine published by Steve Forbes' daughter, Moira Forbes, with a companion Web site.[12]
The company formerly published American Legacy magazine as a joint venture, although that magazine separated from Forbes as of May 14, 2007.[19]
The company also formerly published American Heritage and Invention & Technology magazines. After failing to find a buyer, Forbes suspended publication of these two magazines as of May 17, 2007.[20] Both magazines have since been purchased by the American Heritage Publishing Company, and have resumed publication as of Spring 2008.[21]
Forbes has published the Forbes Travel Guide since 2009.
On January 6, 2014, Forbes Magazine announced that, in partnership with app creator Maz, it was launching a social networking app called “Stream”. Stream allows Forbes readers to save and share visual content with other readers and discover content from Forbes magazine and within the app. [22]

Forbes named magazine artist Kyle Reeves as Vice President to David Churbuck. David founded Forbes '​ Web site in 1996. The site uncovered Stephen Glass' journalistic fraud in The New Republic in 1998, an article that drew attention to internet journalism. At the peak of media coverage of alleged Toyota sudden unintended acceleration in 2010 it exposed the California "runaway Prius" as a hoax, as well as running five other articles by Michael Fumento challenging the entire media premise of Toyotas suddenly gone bad. The site, like the magazine, publishes many lists focusing on billionaires and their possessions, especially expensive homes, a critical aspect of the website's apparent popularity.[23] employs the slogan "Home Page For The World's Business Leaders" and sometimes claims to be the world's most widely visited business web site.[24]
The company's current chief executive officer is Mike Perlis; the current chief product officer is Lewis D'vorkin; the current editor of the magazine is Randall Lane. also publishes subscription investment newsletters, and an online guide to web sites, Best of the Web. is part of Forbes Digital, a division of Forbes Media LLC. Forbes' holdings include a portion of RealClearPolitics. Together these sites reach more than 27 million unique visitors each month.
The 2009 Times report said that, while "one of the top five financial sites by traffic [throwing] off an estimated $70 million to $80 million a year in revenue, [it] never yielded the hoped-for public offering".[12]
Forbes currently allows advertisers to publish blog posts on its website alongside regular editorial content through a program called AdVoice, which accounts for more than 10 percent its digital revenue.[25] The website also uses a "contributor model" in which a wide network of "contributors" writes and publishes articles directly on the website.[26] Contributors are paid based on traffic to their pages; the site has received contributions from over 2,500 individuals, and some contributors have earned over US$100,000, according to the company.[26]

The Bunny and The lady Dignity Are Elizabeth's Dream Moon!


Stars hide behind clouds tonight,
The pool of invisible daydreams glitter
under the loose girdle of July rain,
Britterish memories,
Brown and soft skins,
Wonders hang like black long hair,
The bunny and his mommy have hidden
their faces from the moon they reside,
To escape violent claims,
Someone on earth has abused the Moon's grace,
confusing her greed with decent beauty,
It's no wonder many others disgree
and create new character to feature the eclipses,
In China, a famous artist shoots television series
to honor the moon as a grandpa
who is as wise as Kongfuzi,
whatever humans believe from their braised views,
It's simply incredible for the dream girl,
named Elizabeth to make believe, and fine tune
her limitless imaginations to share with her friends,
Liz loves the idea of A White Bunny
and the Lady Dignity on the Moon face,
The society has been changing
for better or for worse,
Justice rules under the Divine Power,
Evil acts halt under the Sunshine,
Thus, whenever Elizabeth observes the earth,
She would smile at the Moon,
and admire her pure grace....
It's a mother's love, and a bunny's wish.

The Tree No One Visits Vs. The Horse No One Rides


So I did. I climbed one afternoon
up that steep, rockyhill,
Stopping to rest and admire a wildflower
And the view of the lake
In the valley down below.

I would have liked a goat for company,
A black-and-white one with a bell
to go ahead, graze awhile and break
The quiet as he resumes his ascent
to where a tree stands dark and silent.

Waiting all these years for someone,
To sit in its shade at ease with himself,
Even wind that's always thinking up
little games for its leaves to play,
In no hurry now to disturb the peace.

In My Sky At Twilight by Pablo Neruda



In my sky at twilight you are like a cloud
and your form and colour are the way I love them.
You are mine, mine, woman with sweet lips
and in your life my infinite dreams live.

The lamp of my soul dyes your feet,
the sour wine is sweeter on your lips,
oh reaper of my evening song,
how solitary dreams believe you to be mine!

You are mine, mine, I go shouting it to the afternoon's
wind, and the wind hauls on my widowed voice.
Huntress of the depth of my eyes, your plunder
stills your nocturnal regard as though it were water.

You are taken in the net of my music, my love,
and my nets of music are wide as the sky.
My soul is born on the shore of your eyes of mourning.
In your eyes of mourning the land of dreams begin.

The Word Bell That Rings


Pacifica St. Beach,
Pacifica, California,
Morning surfers,
Rolling waves:
white foams,
blades of green,
push, one after another,
profoundly sound,
people walk dogs,
doing fetch and catch games,
warm sunshine,
Believe it or not,
Ride the ducks,
lots of cars,
brave swimmers,
smooth rocks,
many footprints,
advanced camera,
swallow so many images,
including rocks
piled like
a tower,
and oldman
as if
the sky

SEER by Charles Hice


so whats in the window
the future is the clouds
the past is the clear sky
the monuments
the flag of the nation
the time
the transports of the citizens
the vegetation
the wind is blowing
the towers of the electric type
one thing is mostly missing
humans of any kind
nothing is moving
outside of the time

No Paradise Is Lost!


Your pen has painted an arbitrary land
where the meaning of beauty is unknown,
Blank stares, spinning cartwheels,
Bits of stones, morning dew on tree leaves.
Bare arms stretch, floating bodies,
The foggy noon blocks your way in woods,
you jump into the lake,
drink lots of water under the current.
Your hands are numb
under the burning of metamorphosis,
Maddened colors diffuse the moist of desires,
Slaves of love,
Slaves of freedom.
