It takes a certain amount of chutzpah to ask for a $5 million discount — but then again, folks who can afford to pay for something expensive enough to be discounted millions are typically powerful, larger-than-life business moguls. Among their ranks is Wes Edens, co-owner of the Milwaukee Bucks basketball team and a majority share-holder of English Premier League club Aston Villa, who was able to knock $5 million off the listing price of a futuristic Manhattan condo.

The sleek, glassy home, listed for just under $25 million at the time of sale, overlooks the trendy High-Line pedestrian path in Chelsea and sits atop an eye-catching building crafted by the late, award-winning architect Zaha Hadid.

“We have come to our nation’s capital to cash a check.” 

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. made this statement at the Lincoln Memorial during the 1963 March on Washington. King understood that if America is ever to truly become the promised land where “little Black boys and Black girls [can] join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers,” America must reconcile the inequitable distribution of wealth created by the legacy of slavery, convict leasing, New Deal policies, Jim Crow segregation, and redlining. 

This year, 2020, has revealed that now is the time to truly deliver on King’s dream.

An Australian government promise to pay its suppliers faster has led to a collaboration between an e-invoicing startup from South Australia and the federal Treasury.

“This project started back in 2016, when the government was looking at ways to streamline the interaction with
