Another important day in #tax world and especially for @OECDtax.

#G20 Ministers should approve today last week's proposal by the OECD to reform international corporate tax rules.

Is this a revolution?

Check out this thread for a visual illustration of what is on the table!
The reform (who has the right to tax multinationals and where should that happen) has 3 steps (A, B and C). A being the major breakthrough. All companies with a certain turnover in a country even without physical presence have to allocate a part of their profits to that country.
How this step A looks like is the big question and it has been hard to visualize the reform and clearly indicate what still needs to be negotiated (cause a lot is still under discussion). I have tried to put it all in images and happy to hear comments and discuss #taxtwitter

#OpportunityCost is the aggregate net cost of doing something, vis a vis 'not doing it' at all.

The initial project, option & prospect of #Brexit came with huge opportunity costs, which were too easily pre-discounted as #ProjectFear. 1/
The initial #Leave case, dramatised by the #BorisBus, contended that UK could save its £350m pw #EU 'gross membership contribution' and pass that 'saving' straight to the #NHS - as 'additional funding'. 2/
The #Leave case focused on saving UK's #EU gross membership cost in favour of #NHS.

It ignored regular #EU annual contributions back into a multiplicity of UK projects, which would obviously be stopped, if we ceased membership.

Anyone who ran with the Biden aspect re WBC was dupped by TeamTrump front-facing much worse scandals.

The Biden disinfo is not an ‘urgent’ NatSec issue, duh! It’s old news.

@nyt @washingtonpost @wsj @cnn @msnbc: You just aided GRU/Trump’s Biden smear campaign.

Biden aspect of the WBC disinfo — meant to smear Biden. RT hyped fake vid.

Let's talk about #BlackBloc, and why some antifascists wear masks.

"Antifa" are anyone who stand up against fascism, masked or otherwise. Black bloc and antifa are not interchangeable terms. Black bloc is not a group but a tactic some use, sometimes. #DefendPDX
Black bloc traditionally acts as the first line of defense against violent fascists and out of control cops. They're people who train and prepare to take the brunt of the violence so other people who can't can still feel safe coming to a protest.
Black bloc as a tactic was developed by autonomists in Europe, then came to the US during protests like the "Battle in Seattle" against the World Trade Organization in 1999.

(This is long before groups of Americans were using the term "antifa" to describe themselves.)

Any #Brexit would be a total #Catastrophuc for UK! Reasons will follow in this 12 part thread, to be developed over coming days. If you know of any NET benefits from #Brexit, please feed them in. They'd need to be good to match the >£1bn pw this mess is ALREADY costing US! 1/12.
Easiest one first! Full #EU membership (as NOW) gives the UK unrestricted tariff-free & frictionless trade access to an enlarged & well developed HOME market of 550+ million people in 27 fellow member states, being SO much MORE than our own UK of 4 much smaller parts. 2/12.
Brexiteers discount EU's relentless progress in terms of comprehensive trade deals with international markets. While UK has been a busy fool, chasing Brexit and getting nowhere! EU has signed Canada, Korea, Japan and (recently) Brazil & Argentina! All OURS to access NOW! 3/12.

السلام عليكم.

1️⃣ ترون كلام هذا البائس @Sabri_ali_oglu والذي يعبر بالضبط عن الانحطاط الأخلاقي والشعور بالنقص والكذب والخسة والدناءة والغطرسة اللامتناهية، والشعور الوهمي بالتفوق.

إنه في الحقيقة يعبر عن حالة التهتك والضعف والمهانة كذكر مخصي.

2️⃣ إما أن ذاكرته ذاكرة ذبابة، وإما أنه يعتصر ألماً من فشل مخططات بلده العدوانية تحت حكم البائس أردوغان ضد العرب.

لقد تعامل الأتراك طوال تاريخهم مع العرب وشعوب المنطقة بعدوانية منقطعة النظير لا لشيء إلا بسبب الغيرة والأحقاد.

3️⃣ حارب العربُ الأتراكَ ولم يستقر للأتراك سلطان على الجزيرة العربية طوال حكم العثمانيين البائد، ولم يمكنهم سوى وضع حاميات عسكرية هنا وهناك، بينما قبورهم شاخصة حتى اليوم في أرجاء #المملكة_العربية_السعودية.

‼️#G20 5 takeaways‼️

The trade war with China has shifted.
After meeting China’s leader on the side lines of the G20 summit, Mr. Trump told reporters on Saturday: “We discussed a lot of things, and we’re right back on track” with trade talks.
Trump also said that the United States would not impose any new tariffs on Chinese exports while the talks were underway, and that China had agreed to resume broad purchases of American farm products and other goods.
Trump he would visit the Demilitarized Zone and publicly invited Mr. Kim, the North’s iron-fisted leader, to meet him there.

North Korea indicated on Saturday that it would welcome such a meeting.

Le #G20 d'Osaka confirme plusieurs traits caractéristiques de la politique étrangère de #Trump. Le 1er d'entre eux, outre sa personnalisation extrême hors- voire contre les normes bureaucratiques, pourrait être baptisé "la diplomatie à l'estomac". Voir ici sur la #CoréeduNord. RT
2) Tout est pensé dans la #diplomatie de #Trump d'1 part pour être public et projeté via Twitter à sa base de partisans et d'autre part pour être un spectacle dont il est la figure centrale. Ainsi, cette proposition "impromptue" de rencontre avec #KimJongUn en zone démilitarisée

Bilateral between the US and Saudi Arabia
President Trump has a bilateral meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, who is set to be the host of G20 later today after the closing session in the afternoon in Japan.
2/ Saudi will host #G20 in 2020.

The bilateral meeting venue was on 22rd floor at RON with an astounding view of Osaka at 8:39 AM local. It’s a working breakfast.

The meeting ran behind schedule for 24 minutes for unknown reasons.
3/ The Crown Prince only talked for 30 seconds “in fluent English.”
Because of shutter sounds, we could not hear clearly.
He said, “Thank you, Mr. President, for your warm welcome, we are trying to (inaudible) in our own country, Saudi Arabia. It’s a long journey.

#AcuerdoMercosurUE Abro hilo. Cerrado luego de 20 años de negociación. Incluye libre comercio, es decir que los productos que vendamos a UE entrarán sin pagar aranceles. Para los que importemos de UE la reducción será gradual hasta llegar a cero en 15/20 años. Eso nos favorece.👇
#AcuerdoMercosurUE Hay que hacer reformas macroeconómicas y aumentar la seguridad jurídica para mejorar la competitividad de las empresas, de modo de aprovechar esta oportunidad (vender a UE). Si logramos esas reformas será beneficioso, de otro modo, a la larga, perjudicial.👇
Los productos europeos que vengan al Mercosur tienen más tecnología y mejores condiciones de producción, por eso son más competitivos. Entre los socios del Mercosur, Brasil es más competitivo que Argentina por tener inflación y tasa de interés de un dígito. Qué hay que hacer? 👇

Prompted by a reporter’s question about whether Trump would warn Putin against future election meddling, Trump *jokingly* said to Putin: “Don’t meddle in the election.”

Then they all shared a big laugh about it. Appalling.
NEW: Trump smirked as he surrendered western values to Putin at the #G20Summit in Osaka. Trump and Putin delighted in their shared belief that they have permanently eroded the liberal, democratic consensus.

A White House official speaking on background gave us (travel team) a short briefing about a G20 session on the digital economy.

3/ This applied especially “in the areas of emerging technologies.”
The issues range from “skills and workforce to preventing things like terrorist content from proliferating online.”

No golden goodbye from @theresa_may to Vladimir Putin in #G20 talks. Seems like she’s confronted him about most things weighing on her mind. Not quite what the Russian President wanted to hear. Will paste quotes from a Downing St spokesperson below....
“She told the President that there cannot be a normalisation of our bilateral relationship until Russia stops the irresponsible and destabilising activity that threatens the UK and its allies - including hostile interventions in other countries, disinformation and cyber attacks”
“The Prime Minister said that the use of a deadly nerve agent on the streets of Salisbury formed part of a wider pattern of unacceptable behaviour and was a truly despicable act that led to the death of a British citizen, Dawn Sturgess.”
