2 thoughts on “Facebook CEO to appear before Congress on currency plan

  1. I find it laughable Congress Critters will defer to legal members of their teams or consultants to frame questions and interpret plausible answers for some witnesses but deem themselves experts in matters of technology. They should have been able to pin Zuckerberg’s ears back as to where Facebook et alia (owned companies) is dangerous to society, both now and in the future.

    So now they’re going to attempt to grill him on crypto, something beyond most business people and techies?
