Bono's pretend invasion of Venezuela
In a Bloomberg News Service article on Bono which ran in yesterday's New York Post, aside from a rehash of Bono's moving his business to the Netherlands for tax purposes, an interesting tidbit emerged:
'What's more, Bono's foray into private equity, via Menlo Park, Calif.-based Elevation Partners LP, has clashed with his ideals at times.Elevation's first investment was a stake in two video-game companies, Edmonton, Canada-based BioWare Corp. and Los Angeles-based Pandemic Studios LLC. BioWare makes a war game called "Destroy All Humans 2." Pandemic's catalog includes a war game called "Mercenaries 2: World in Flames," depicting a mercenary invasion of Venezuela.'
