Here's an example of the kind of chart that makes people justifiably skeptical about SPACs. https://t.co/a123F3FwDM

Podcast: @JeffImmelt ran GE for 16 years, during which time its market value roughly halved. He discussed his book “Hot Seat” and how it attempts to put that rocky period into context with @johnsfoley on The Exchange. https://t.co/KtT0yV7Ky0

The Goldman Sachs worker bees who made a slide deck protesting 'inhumane' conditions deserve some sympathy, even though they’re faring better than most Americans. Their self-pity is worrying for Wall Street, though, says @johnsfoley of @Breakingviews https://t.co/sX6Fbc44De

From @Breakingviews: Elon Musk has found a new way to troll his detractors, anointing himself Technoking of Tesla. But at least he’s keeping shareholders happy at the same time, says @johnsfoley https://t.co/CaKQzriy70

Watch: Covid-19 hurt the economy in 2020, but not the pay of big bank CEOs. A $33 million package is harder than usual to justify, @johnsfoley suggests. https://t.co/zOEeIKgDox https://t.co/Iht7KgfgI6

Email bankruptcy. Simply set an auto-reply that says “This inbox is currently undergoing a restructuring owing to attention-insolvency. Your claim on the recipient’s time has been ranked as ultra-subordinated.” And presto! https://t.co/koxa7wC1yf

Really wish someone would invent an email add on that shows people how any unread messages a recipient already has. If people could see the 92,749 mails already demanding my attention, they might think the better of 'just wanted to follow up on'....

U.S. banks benefited massively from government measures to support the economy and lending as Covid-19 struck. That makes Wall Street bosses’ 2020 pay hard to justify, says @johnsfoley. https://t.co/41ieBD1zti https://t.co/bjcanb7a3a
