Al Gore believes, as Johan Carlstrom at Bloomberg writes, that it is time for some reforming of capitalism. Mr. Gore has done all right under the old regime having recently:
... sold his Current TV network to Al Jazeera, the cable channel funded in part by oil-rich Qatar ... with a price tag of about $500 million.
And, then, there were those Apple options which he exercised:
... at $7.48 a share, on 59,000 shares ... that he’d been granted for serving on the Cupertino, California-based company’s board since 2003. On paper, it was about a $30 million payday based on the company’s share price on the day he claimed the options.
Making Mr. Gore rich enough to enjoy his role as self-appointed scold to the world.
