@scorpfx $BIDU $BABA $JD the mayor referenced in the Benzinga article appears not to realise that data consent is focused on giving every individual jurisdiction over their own data and the right to trade it. The state regulates this to ensure it happens so it already has jurisdiction and already levies tax on profits generated in part by virtue of their data. Effectively his suggestion is to use data as an excuse to tax profits twice. Only fools and those intent on tricking them will take this seriously.
