Aaron Mak is a Slate.com writer who covers technology. We discuss with him recent developments in the Twitter saga. Elon Musk first was said to join the Board at Twitter, causing consternation among Twitter employees and users. Days later, he rejected that outcome, and is now only a major stockholder. But this frees him from fiduciary responsibilities, thus enables him to buy more stock, and influence the company in that fashion. The outcome is not clear. We talk about the possibilities and eventualities that might arise.
We talk with Zack Kopplin, an investigator for the Government Accountability Project, talks to us about how very wealthy people hide their money. This is done all over the world, by various methods. These methods mostly include hiding the actual ownership. We discuss how this is done, who is doing it, and where it is being done. In many instances, this is not illegal, but certainly raises ethical questions. We also talk about how it could be countered.
