Just finished the new thriller about the next world war, "2034," by Elliot Ackerman and Admiral @stavridisj. It's a good read, focused on US-China tensions, and sobering about cyber and how miscalculations escalate and create a nuclear exchange nobody wants. Check it out!

If @BorisJohnson is here declaring war on Cummings, 1) it is a wonderful soap-opera distraction from the substantive issues raised by the leaks (too much cosiness between PM and plutocrats) and b) we are witnessing the political version of mutually assured nuclear destruction

In the first four months of 2021, Elon Musk has committed almost $150 million directly to charities. Here's where that money's gone: trib.al/lQ4DpDa

Agreed. But more than most tycoons, he would probably be justified in saying he was very busy with other important stuff and always intended to get around to it later? There are plenty of other Giving Pledge signatories who don’t really have that excuse - older, more retired... twitter.com/teddyschleifer…
@mattbish @elonmusk Eh, Musk has made infinitesimal progress toward that goal. $100m total before this most recent spurt.

Actually, this may be a rare moment where profound changes to business/capitalism are possible, to make them far more beneficial to all of us, not just the wealthy few. But that will take serious engagement with business & finance, not naive calls for CEOs to stay out of politics twitter.com/mattbish/statu…

What is striking now is that some prominent CEOs seem to be shifting their political priorities towards a more progressive agenda, breaking a half century deal with America’s social conservatives. Read Jamie Dimon’s letter to shareholders to see how. But how real is this change?
It is not through a lack of political CEOs that the US now has the most pro-business Supreme Court ever, very low rates of corporate tax, and feeble regulation in much of the economy - much of this preceding the most business leader heavy cabinet in modern times twitter.com/mattbish/statu…
From this editorial from my old colleagues, you might get the impression that until recently corporate America had been virtuously above politics rather than corrupting it with its lobbying dollars and campaign donations... economist.com/leaders/2021/0…

When did morality become a political issue? CEOs have an obligation to do the right thing with their immense power as leaders to improve the state of the world. It is indifference that is the core of sin. Business is the greatest platform for change. @TheEconomist wrong again.❤️

My contribution to today's Coinbase discourse is that CEO Brian Armstrong took the unusual step in 2018 of signing The Giving Pledge when $COIN was still a private company. Very rare to see people who are only billionaires on paper sign the document. Here's his letter.

Great to see so many CEO’s stepping up to defend democracy and right to vote. This is not a bipartisan issue. This is a democratic rights issue. Don’t be fooled.
