The weak spots that let journalists expose the finances of looters, organized criminals and oligarchs / Boing Boing
1. Retired Officials: Johnston says former regulators of the industry you’re investigating are “the most helpful people you could ever develop as a source in trying to trace money and criminal enterprises.” They can show you where to look for wrongdoing by pointing out specific laws and bylaws that might have been contravened, he said.

2. Land Registries: “If you’re looking for assets, check the Land Registry for England and Wales,” Garside said. The website publishes a searchable Excel file that lists all the property owned by shell companies outside the UK. “If you’re looking for hidden multi-million-pound houses, that that’s where you find them,” she said.

The lesson from the ruins of Notre Dame: don’t rely on billionaires | Aditya Chakrabortty | Opinion | The Guardian
As the Notre Dame official said last month, they don’t want their money “just to pay employees’ salaries”.

Slack Stock Soars as Messaging Company Goes Public - The New York Times
Slack worth close to $25B it seems at $40+ stock price. It seems it did direct listing at $26.

Last private valuation was $7.1B. Buttefield’s equity of Slack at $38 a share is $1.5B.

“The workplace collaboration company’s shares began trading at $38.50 on the New York Stock Exchange, up from a reference price of $26 that was set on Wednesday. That gave Slack a fully diluted valuation of $23.1 billion, more than triple its $7.1 billion valuation as a private company. In the weeks before the listing, investors had privately traded Slack’s shares at prices as high as $31.50 a share.”
