Monday, June 6
DelCOG Board Meeting (via Zoom)
Author Hal Weitzman, executive director for intellectual capital at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, teaches MBA students and business executives at Chicago Booth. At the June DelCOG Board Meeting, he will talk about his new book, What’s the Matter with Delaware: How the First State Has Favored the Rich, Powerful, and Criminal—and How It Costs Us All. He will answer the question of Gabriel Zucman, coauthor of The Triumph of Injustice: How the Rich Dodge Taxes and How to Make Them Pay – “What is it that attracts giant multinational companies, kleptocrats, and tax evaders to Delaware?”
Nell Minow, vice chair of ValueEdge Advisors, says Weitzman’s “meticulously researched book” is a “must-read for anyone who wants to know why it is so difficult to align corporate action with shareholder value or the public interest.” Minow adds, the Weitzman book is a “powerfully argued examination of capitalism’s ‘Delaware problem,’ which undermines the transparency and accountability essential to a strong economy.”
U.S. Constitution Day
Commemorates the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787, in order to ensure that all citizens should know about their rights as outlined in the Constitution. A clause in the 2004 bill that established a day to honor the Constitution mandates the teaching of the Constitution in schools that receive federal funds as well as in federal agencies.
International Right to Know Day
Raises awareness of every individual’s right to government-held information and to know how elected officials are exercising power and how taxpayer’s money is being spent.
Bill of Rights Day
We celebrate the 231st Anniversary of The Bill of Rights.
