Incredible accounting of a tax loophole increasingly favored by the wealthy (incl Musk, Mercer, Page etc) that lets them reap the tax benefits of donating without actually giving to working charities, and also hiding the recipients of the money they do get out the door

INBOX: Amazon says its raising the average min pay in its operations about $1/hr, to $19/hr. (No indication the min wage isn't $15/hr still) Also it says more workers can access their accrued pay any time, not just biweekly, etc. A way to reduce the need for payday loans.

Fascinating look at underbuilding. “You have a scarce resource of floor area that could be used for housing people, and it is being used, essentially, for people who are super wealthy.”

You'd expect a new 210-foot condo tower to have quite a few apartments. Increasingly on the Upper East and West Sides, you'd be wrong. In some cases, these luxury buildings have fewer apts than the low-rise rental buildings they replace. (free link!)🧵

Roskomnadzor "has morphed... from a sleepy telecom regulator into a full-blown intelligence agency, closely monitoring websites, social media and news outlets" Great reporting by @paulmozur @satariano @Aaron_Krolik @alizauf
