"The first duty of the board is to its shareholders.The decision on where to locate is an internal matter for the board. HSBC need only abide by the regulations governing banking in the jurisdictions in which it operates. It is logical for the board to choose the jurisdiction most favourable to its shareholders.

"Parents do not need to pay 100% of their kid's tuition bill. Only societal pressures make them think they do. When kids have no skin in the game, they don't take education seriously.
