This is why I think the best solution is moral/cultural. Companies should be encouraged to pay their taxes in the spirit of the law and held accountable for schemes that are technically legal but obviously contra spirit of the law (not saying this specifically applies to AMZN)

Why not enforce the spirit of the law with some latitude for enforcement? "Companies have an obligation to pay the technical minimum taxes they can manage" sets up a perpetual arms race that gov't is unlikely to win.

I think there's an implicit "don't push tax minimization to a comical extreme" too. Skip the Double Irish Dutch Sandwich even if it's technically legal.

That's quite a kindness considering how dumb it makes the speaker look. Not the move I would go with but 🤷‍♂️

most of the companies we have backed you have never heard of before I'm sure, though that's not a variable we optimize for one way or the other ✌️

It's freemium. Their power users pay for it... with money...which incentivizes the company to make the product better, for users... Real Business 👍

Extremely pleased to tweet that is backing & the team! already an incredible product & they're building the best answer I've seen to "what if a social network had a real business model instead of an attention-draining ad model"🤔

I think it's just inertia. In the same way that software companies weren't remote until some people tried it, it worked, they blogged about it, etc

100% of the very good arguments in favor of running your software company remote apply to running a fund, yet everyone is shocked that is fully remote: team, mentors, investors, portfolio co's all distributed. Surprised it's not more common.
