NETFLIX: The American Fat Cat Tax Dodging Russian Co.

Is NETFLIX CEO Reed Hastings an NSA threat? Netflix Russia can only be 20% owned by non-Russian (that is American) (Business Standard). CEO Reed Hastings touts job creation (Netflix buys Russian police drama ‘Silver Spoon’ for global market) which is really just betting or developing new movies for his service (using local development government funds or tax credits as is a common scenario), when his candidate (L.A. Times) on the LASUD public school board laid off 1,600 full time administrative jobs (LA School Report). His company does not pay taxes on operations overseas (The Guardian UK) and his technology is accused of being stolen (Netflix Annual Report 2016). Finally he dislikes U.S. President Donald Trump. CEO Reed Hasting and his movie streaming service is a “fat cat”.
