The Rise of Digital Workers

As more digital freelancers find work through online labor platforms, taxing their income will become increasingly difficult

Although it may sound ominous, a dark pool is a legal mechanism typically used by large traders. It is an automated trading system that doesn’t display orders to the public; a consolidated tape of trade execution details is released at a later point. Available shares are deliberately not advertised; buyers are matched via automated systems only when sellers are present. Prices are gleaned from the lit market. But some dark pools offer varying degrees of pricing to the publicly quoted prices on public equity exchanges.

The dark and the darker sides of the market

Total transparency in financial trading can be costly

Given the great diversity of stakeholders’ interests, be they governments, advocacy groups, industry associations, think tanks or community organizations, a bespoke strategy for engaging with each group is required. To communicate its narrative, a corporation must take every opportunity to regularly check in with its constituents, to be present in relevant conversations and to join and actively participate in germane initiatives.

We’re losing trust in business. How can we get it back?

Business is “on the brink of distrust”, declared Edelman’s Barometer earlier this year.

The One Belt One Road project already has $1 trillion of projects underway, including major infrastructure works in Africa and Central Asia. Ahead of the Beijing summit earlier this month, the China Development Bank had set aside almost $900 billion alone for more than 900 projects. China’s Big Four state-owned banks extended an estimated $90 billion in loans to the economies related to the initiative last year alone.

China’s $900 billion New Silk Road. What you need to know

You’ve probably heard of the Silk Road, the ancient trade route that once ran between China and the West during the days of the Roman Empire. It’s how oriental silk first made it to Europe. It’s also the reason China is no stranger to carrots

Yet since the law was implemented, Airbnb growth has exploded. According to the website Inside Airbnb, the number of listings in Berlin has increased by 54%, with over 7,200 new listings for a total of 20,576 — the most ever in Berlin. But even more ominous, the number of whole homes/apartments listed – which the law was specifically designed to curtail – has increased by 45% to 10,289 listings. So 50% of Airbnb listings are still for entire homes and apartments.

How the Berlin government could rein in Airbnb and protect local housing

If Airbnb knowingly facilitates criminal activity, it should itself be treated as a criminal enterprise
