David Singh (profile here) and Dr Shffi Mohamad (here) say that the role of the board of directors in corporations is related to supervision and planning, in particular, governance, strategic direction, and accountability. But it's more complicated than it seems.

All the signs are here but central bankers are either in denial or doing exactly the wrong thing.

Watching American motor racing always smacks of a trick when, not long before the end, a safety car comes out and everyone bunches up. Why not just to five lap sprint races because at the end of the day, that's all the racing that counts. So when one hears a TV commentator at the inaugural Miami Grand Prix say that we need a safety car to spice things up, there's a horrible sinking feeling, and a sour taste after the safety-car led debacle in the Abu Dhabi GP 2021.

To say that the the 2021 season of Formula One ended on a sour note would be the understatement of all time.

The series faced an existential crisis. When the teams assembled for testing, nothing would be the same.

When the lights went out for the first race, in Bahrain, only one question mattered: had Formula One survived?

Australia's Consumer and Competition Commission has sued two companies within Meta, the parent group of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp over crypto-ads by celebrities. The companies are Meta Platforms, Inc. and Meta Platforms Ireland Limited

The action is intended to establish that social media and other platforms are responsible for what appears there, something that all social media - and even online versions of established media have long fought against.

Buried in a long and complicated judgment there is a short and simple answer to the question "can a company sue for defamation?"

Here it is.

The statement below, from the UK government's website for the Department of Business sets out the immediate and short-term plans for, inter alia, the registration of foreign companies operating in the UK. The statement was published on 28th February 2022. The Bill was introduced to Parliament hours later.

Nigel Morris-Cotterill will publish a BLOG/cast on the companies registration portion of the Bill on 10th March 2022 at www.financialcrimebroadcasting...

If there was ever a unifying speech by an American President, this was probably it.

Only the most hard-line Republicans, determined to complain no matter what, will have much to say that doesn't support the vast majority of Biden's proposals. Yes, it was loaded with tacky rhetoric and tub-thumping and he lost his way from time to time but the general thrust of his speech was this: capitalism and social responsibility can live side by side and in doing so create a fairer and more wealthy society.

The European Bank of Reconstruction and Development began life as a combination lender and aid agency to help bring relatively poor areas in the EU up to standards in the more well off areas. It funded bridges and drainage, hospitals and schools and it was good. It has no money other than what it raises from "donors" which is a fictitious term meaning member states which, of course, means EU taxpayers.

What is it spending money on now? Let's just say that it's not good and if you are a taxpayer in the EU, it's your money. The EBRD itself says that 35% of the money it spends comes from EU coffers. As you will see, more comes direct from member states.

They are going to have trouble : is it "cartel," "monopoly," "anti-trust"....?

The UK, USA, New Zealand, Canada and Australia are forming a working group to identify and act against illegal conduct in international supply chains.

And the US will get to use its terminology because, on the face of it, it gets two votes.

Several weeks, ago, Austria declared Google Analytics to be non-compliant with its data protection legislation.

Now France has followed suit.

I'll set out my position in the first line so no one can be in any doubt: Max Verstappen is a deserving world motor racing champion.

But the sport, the drivers and the fans have been done a grave disservice by the Race Director, Michael Masi, who has capped off a season where he has demonstrated that he is unable to make a final decision and that he is easily swayed by the pleas of team principles who have learned that he can be easily bullied.

Formula One fans across Asia and Australasia had a sleepless night watching the race that could have been the season climax but instead provided a last-minute equalizer that pushes Abu Dhabi to be the penalty-shoot out to decide a season of dogged determination, spectacular long-shots and own goals.

It's a fair bet that pretty much everyone involved in Formula One is in for a week of sleepless nights as the teams travel ten hours across the Middle East and unpack on Thursday ready for the Friday start.

And it all started when the teams arrived in Saudi Arabia and got a first proper look at the new Jeddah track.

In less than a week's time, we will know who is the Formula One World Drivers' Champion and the Constructors' Champion for 2021.

When the teams pack up after the race in Abu Dhabi it will mark the end of multiple eras.

But there's a surprising history behind the two teams that are battling for the honours in a season that should not have been.
