Weekly Highlight:

They paid no taxes – and claimed a $3.2 billion tax benefit, thanks to fierce lobbying and what the Times calls  “innovative accounting.” Oh yeah, and Obama just named its CEO his liaison with the business community. An infuriating look at what’s wrong with multinational capitalism, and this weekend’s US Uncut actions nationwide to protest it.
