WILBUR ROSS JR. +CABINET POSITION NET WORTH: $2.5 BILLION Donald Trump picks the legendary private equity figure, 79, to be his secretary of commerce. If confirmed by the Senate, Ross will be the second consecutive billionaire to hold the position, replacing Hyatt Hotels heiress Penny Pritzker.

A Beatles High Note FOR THOSE WHO see the world through kaleidoscope eyes, Sotheby’s offered a rare piece of music memorabilia on December 10: John Lennon’s Sgt. Pepper-era home piano. Lennon used the John Broadwood & Sons upright (estimated to sell for between $1.2 million and $1.8 million) to compose “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds” and other Beatles classics. The auction featured scores of rock treasures, including Bob Dylan’s final 1962 manuscript for “Blowin’ in the Wind,” which features the Nobel laureate’s handwritten corrections and signature (with a presale estimate of $300,000 to $500,000), and the Eagles’ original 1976 manuscript for “Hotel California” (expected to bring between $500,000 and $700,000).
