But is Deutsche Bank’s deep-seated interest really the public good? Nah.
As one of the biggest commercial real estate lenders in the world, the direct benefit to Deutsche Bank of a “work from home” tax would be if it turns out to be a deterrent to people working at home, and in turn, a deterrent to corporations backing out of office space leases.
Because if lots of people continue working from home, it hurts the commercial real estate market, which hurts the developers who own the office buildings, who owe piles and piles of cash to Deutsche Bank. More than you could possibly imagine.
All you need to know really!
