The Link #210: [The Mighty Fall]
August 25, 2019

The Business Roundtable (CEOs panel) declares that businesses need to be more responsible to broader stakeholders including employees, customers, and society (or, at least, less responsible to shareholders).

In varying degrees of absurdity: Overstock’s CEO Patrick Byrne resigned amidst scandal with the ‘deep state’, generational feuds at Apollo, and fallout of Great Hill’s buyout of Gawker. 

David Koch passed away at age 79 after quite a life (did you know he almost died in a 1991 plane crash?). 

Dead social networks from years past.

The ills of meritocracy for society.

This week in Music: Taylor’s new album, campaign rally playlists and what they say about candidates, and the Obamas’ summer playlist.
