Mike's Blog Round Up
May 13, 2020

Eschaton: American tourists hoping to travel to Europe this year are in for a rude awakening.

No More Mister Nice Blog: It’s tough to defeat Coronavirus when one of the U.S. political parties essentially constitutes a fifth column.

Lawyers, Guns and Money: Oral arguments in the tax returns case suggest the Supreme Court will once again protect Donald Trump.

Naked Capitalism: A pandemic is bad enough for commercial real estate; private equity is making matters much worse.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"It is one thing that if I had a chance to go back I would be more sensitive to. It is always a balance. Great care has got to be taken not to take a dividend or a distribution from a company that puts that company at risk." (Mitt Romney, June 4, 2007.)
