Three returning contestants

And all on the same page.

  1. “U.S. Indicts VW’s Former CEO,” The Wall Street Journal, May 4, 2018 B1. Former CEO indicted in March for conspiracy and wire fraud following the emissions cheating scandal.  Do CEOs go to jail?
  2. “Facebook Has Dual Standard On Privacy,” The Wall Street Journal, May 4, 2018 B1. If you’re in a special group in Facebook, you get an alert if someone accesses your profile; if you’re a muggle, or don’t work at Facebook, you don’t.  Maybe this will change?
  3. “Theranos Hurt Big-Name Investors,” The Wall Street Journal, May 4, 2018 B1.  Company said it had the technology to do a wide range of blood tests based on a few drops of blood.  It didn’t, and a host of big-name investors lost a bundle. Is this a governance issue, an information issue, or a compliance issue?  Don’t believe everything you hear; it’s costly.  And don’t serve as a director without doing your own due diligence.
