Opinion | Running for president was the worst business decision Trump ever made

Yes, you almost certainly pay more than $750 a year in income taxes. I pay more than that in income taxes. A friend’s son paid more during the summer he worked as a camp counselor.

No, none of us has $10 billion, like Trump (dubiously) has claimed. And yes, we all, in our small way, have subsidized this alleged billionaire’s pricey hairstyling and extended stays in luxury accommodation.

Yes, too, foreign interests and miscellaneous characters appear to have become big spenders at Trump properties since he started running for president.

But we knew he was a tax chiseler and a scoundrel before the Times story broke. We knew it before he became president, because he bragged about it on the campaign trail. If voters didn’t care then, why would they start to now?

If the numbers weren’t so complicated to parse, voters might be more interested in learning that

Great Idea, Challenging Business Model, Says Analyst

Not one to miss an opportunity to go down a lucrative new path, last week Amazon (AMZN) announced it is launching a cloud gaming platform, Luna.

Luna will launch at an introductory price of $6 a month with a tiered subscription structure, and the new service will go head to head with other big players’ services such as Google’s Stadia, Microsoft’s xCloud, and EA’s Origin Access.

Powered by AWS and integrated with its own live streaming platform, Twitch, the aim is to have the service accessible to any device with a screen. Although users playing on TVs will need to connect a FireTV box or a FireTV stick. Gamers using phones, tablets or PCs already online will be able to access the service without FireTV.

One thing the service won’t have at launch is much content. To start off, only 50 games will be available, and with one

Vista Outdoor to buy bankrupt gunmaker Remington’s ammunition business

(Reuters) – Vista Outdoor Inc said on Monday it would buy some parts of U.S. gunmaker Remington Outdoor Co Inc’s ammunition and accessories businesses for about $81 million.

Remington in July filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection for the second time in two years as it faced financial troubles partly because some retailers placed restrictions on gun sales after school shootings in the United States.

“By rescuing the Remington ammunition businesses from bankruptcy, we will protect hundreds of jobs, support wildlife and habitat conservation and ensure that hunting and shooting sports enthusiasts can continue,” Vista Outdoor Chief Executive Officer Chris Metz said in a statement.

Vista Outdoor was one among the many bidders in the auction process of Remington’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases pending in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Alabama.

Remington’s rifle was used in the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting in Connecticut in

‘A step in the right direction’: Thailand’s tourism operators welcome special visa for foreigners

BANGKOK: Tourism operators and hotels in Thailand have welcomed the government’s new stimulus measure that will allow foreign tourists to visit the country with a special long-stay visa amid the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The special tourist visa or STV is expected to become available from October to Sep 30 next year. Its holders will be able to stay in Thailand for 90 days and to extend the visa twice at a cost of 2,000 Baht (US$63) each time.

The scheme was approved in principle by the Cabinet on Sep 15 as part of the government’s efforts to boost the sluggish economy and tourism sector battered by the global health crisis.

“Any and all visitors coming to Thailand will help to stimulate the hotel sector that goes beyond just brick and mortar in an industry that supports suppliers from fisherman and farmers to tour guides and small businesses,” said
