@dresserman But the P&L is entirely contrived "Other external expenses" of €12bn - including inter-company recharges - are enough to push the company into loss, even before staff and finance costs Also, Amazon Inc is run for free cash not profit. No cash flow statement here though...

This is mostly a political story, and many businesses will see little impact from it. But if you are in the information business, and you were wondering if the Lam admin would narrowly define "subversion" and only go after a "minority of troublemakers," now you know. https://t.co/6JZROpOpM4

Hong Kong has arrested over 50 opposition candidates and an American lawyer in dawn raids. Banks and brokerage firms can mostly shrug it off. For media and technology companies that host or transmit ideas it’s the dawn of a riskier era: @petesweeneypro https://t.co/rXbpTBEatp https://t.co/mrYJ71DayW

#Tesla bested by #Volkswagen in Norway. Musk's share halved last year (5.5% from 11%) as battery car competition intensified. #Tesla bulls must hope Europe's most advanced EV market not a sign of things to come... https://t.co/mxZGGHOItB

honestly, i'm just going back to spending a significant amount of time immersing myself in literature that has lasted the test of time, philosophy, going to museums when they open back up, etc. whatever it is that is happening on here now, i don't believe a lot of it can last. https://t.co/y3mzGyV8KH

Haven’t stumbled across a single image that captures the whole complicated process of gentrification more neatly than this deli facade in the middle of red light district. https://t.co/x6zZcVlPjE

Sitting in a hotel in Amsterdam. Ordered room service. As the young waiter was leaving he turned and said, "If i may be so forward, I profoundly enjoyed your book. It was the first I have read in one sitting in quite some time, and I have ADHD.” That made the rest of my year.

Britain today passed 50,000 deaths from Covid-19 and is seven weeks away from leaving the EU without a trade deal. But sure, let’s talk about defining moments. https://t.co/s8nmHIjziM

Today the UK government must tell Mr Barnier again we will become an independent country making our own laws, controlling our own fish and no longer under the European Court. Why can’t the EU keep its word that our future relationship will centre on free trade?
