Bernard Arnault is back in the news again after the left-leaning French daily, Liberation, ran the front-page headline, “Casse-toi, riche con!” (Get lost, rich jerk), referring to the billionaire’s decision to seek Belgian citizenship. Arnault, chairman of LVMH, says he’ll sue the paper and plans to pay French taxes. See here Quartz’ Craig Copetas on a live debate about tax avoidance and taxing the rich.
