      (Bloomberg Opinion) -- David Einhorn's decision to take a stake in BT Group Plc may provide just the boost needed to convince Britain's former national carrier to sell a stake in its traditional network.

      Patients Versus Shareholders

      Regulation and state intervention in the economy has a bad rap in the US. The Trump government claims that its deregulation drive (mostly in the environmental and financial spheres), is at least partly responsible for the economic miracle.
