business news in context, analysis with attitude

by Kevin Coupe

One of the things that John Oliver has become renowned for with his HBO Sunday night program, “Last Week Tonight,” has been his ability to explain complicated issues in simple terms, reducing them to an Eye-Opening essence with sharp (often profane) words and visuals. (His classic bits about net neutrality and FIFA are worth finding on YouTube.)

Oliver was at it again on Sunday with a piece about corporate consolidation and the impact it can have on consumers. It is brilliant, opinionated, and, as usual, probably should be watched with the use of earphones so as not to offend co-workers or small children.

Great stuff.
