When a couple of old, rich white dudes navigate the tax system, Allan Sloan thinks it's funny. When Apple does it, he thinks it's bad. Here's the difference:
Why am I amused by this, rather than enraged — the way I am enraged by companies like Apple, which call themselves American but invent repellent (albeit not illegal) ways to artificially suck earnings out of the United States via offshore subsidiaries that don’t have to pay any tax anywhere?

Graham Holdings and Berkshire Hathaway aren’t pushing boundaries; they’re using something that Congress has specifically allowed.
Oh! Congress allowed it. Totally fine, then.
