Chamath Palihapitiya, the CEO of investment firm Social Capital and chairman of spaceflight company Virgin Galactic, has argued that the US government and the Federal Reserve should not bail out hedge funds and billionaires during the coronavirus crisis.
“On Main Street today, people are getting wiped out. Right now, rich CEOs are not. Boards that have horrible governance are not. People are,” Palihapitiya told CNBC’s “Fast Money Halftime Report.”
