Weshalb wir am 18.6. NEIN zur Umsetzung der #OECD-#Mindeststeuer sagen, obwohl wir die Bemühungen, das internationale System der Unternehmenssteuern gerechter auszugestalten, begrüssen 👇…
#Abst23 #CHvote Image
1️⃣ Die geplante Umsetzung nützt vor allem den Multis. Sie führt nicht zu einer Umverteilung in rohstoffreiche Länder des globalen Südens, die meist viel höhere Gewinnsteuersätze (25-35%) haben - im Gegenteil: Der Druck steigt, ihre Sätze zu senken und dem OECD-Satz anzugleichen.
2️⃣ 75% der Mehreinnahmen gehen an die Kantone, v.a. Tiefsteuerkantone wie BS, ZG, GE. Sie würden zur Standortförderung und Subventionierung von Konzerntätigkeiten (F&E) eingesetzt und nicht der Allgemeinheit nützen - es würden also v.a. Rohstoff- und Pharmakonzerne profitieren.

When students of statistics are introduced to creating and interpreting models, they are introduced to George Box's maxim:

*All models are wrong, some are useful.*

It's a call for humility and perspective, a reminder to superimpose the messy world on your clean lines. 1/ A Tron-like plane of glowing grid-squares. Two spherical cow

Even with this benediction, modeling is forever prone to the cardinal sin of insisting that complex reality can be reduced to "a perfectly spherical cow of uniform density on a frictionless plane." 3/

NEW: The #EU and the #UnitedNations tax resolution🧵: On Monday 20 March, the EU sent its contribution to the public consultation on closer and inclusive tax cooperation at the #UN. Full contribution can be found here:… /1
Bit of history, back in December 2022, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution on the "Promotion of inclusive and effective international tax cooperation at the UN".… /2
The resolution was seen as thinly-veiled criticism of the #OECD's Inclusive Framework. Developing countries felt left out during the negotiations on the OECD's milestone reform of international corporate taxation and advocated for a greater role for the UN in tax policy /3

3 confessions from #ClimateActivists & #ClimateEconomists seeking to tackle the #ClimateCrisis

We were wrong

-2 promise apple pie & motherhood sans costs
-2 repeat solar PV cheapest form of power sans caveats
-2 dismiss any trade-off between climate & development

Back in the day those, including me, who worked on many different versions of the #greendeal all focused on the win-win scenarios ... #greenjobs #greengrowth #justtransition etc. and tho the context has changed completely this win-win farming remains even in the year 2023
Had we mobilised on a war-footing back then, invested at scale, imposed #carbontaxes, innovated like mad & massively increased financial & technological support 4 developing economies to shun coal & adopt #renewables, the #greendeal may have worked, albeit not without real costs

Around the world #IndustrialPolicy is back on policy agendas, but analysis of these policies is limited by a lack of cross-comparable data. We're looking to address this gap through our #OECD Quantifying Industrial Strategies (QuIS) project. A short 🧵on what we're doing 👇 1/7
The QuIS project defines Industrial Policy as direct support extended by the public sector to businesses & aimed at 1⃣ promoting investment, 2⃣ improving competitiveness, or 3⃣ structurally increasing economic development. 2/7
Our methodology to measure & categorise industrial policy expenditures is based on this definition. This is a crucial step towards our goal of gathering and providing the data necessary to compare Industrial Strategies across but also within countries. 3/7

Oct 12 2022: "Deep-sea miner stock jumps after first seafloor collection since 1970s"

The "#greatreset" (#Commonwealth w/ WEF as secretariat) includes deep sea #mining. The annihilation of #oceans carried out under guise of sustainability.

#UN #SDGs…
"The fields in the CCZ represent the largest known, undeveloped #nickel resource on the planet & is estimated to contain over 3 times the amount of #cobalt, almost 2 x the amount of nickel & as much #manganese as all global land-based reserves, combined."

#Privatization of the #oceans will allow for ocean exploration & deep sea #mining - both essential for the fourth industrial revolution infrastructure desired by the ruling class technocrats. #4IR #EVs #Salesforce

[NIT] 🧵

Zdravniki v času vojne, energetske in gospodarske krize spet izsiljujejo in grozijo s stavko za višje plače.

Poglejmo si podatke @OECD o višini plač zdravnikov v razvitih držav, iz katerih je jasno, da so pozabili na solidarnost in da očitno politično rušijo vlado. /1
Po primerjalni analizi @OECD, v kateri so plače zdravnikov primerjali s povprečno plačo v vsaki državi, slovenski zdravniki zaslužijo 2,1-kratnik povprečne plače v 🇸🇮.👇

V primerjavi z članicami #OECD so nekje na sredini, toda bistvo je v podrobnostih. /2…
V pričujoči primerjavi namreč upoštevajo le plače, ki jih slovenski zdravniki zaslužijo v javnih zavodih, plače koncesionarjev in dodatnih zaslužkov, ki jih pridobijo popoldne v zasebnih zavodih kot t.i. "dvoživke", v tej analizi niso upoštevane. 👇 /3

It is with mixed emotions that I share some personal news: after 15 years at #OECD, I have decided to step down as Director of @OECDtax. This is the outcome of a long reflection and I feel privileged to have served this unique Organisation & its members for so many years.
2/ I have been incredibly lucky to be in the most exciting place to witness & facilitate the fundamental, once in a century changes to the int'l #tax system. The deal last Oct was the culmination of more than a decade of hard work to introduce a tax regulation of globalisation.
3/What we have built together is here to last. Pillar Two will soon be implemented globally and Pillar One will set the architecture of the tax system. A page was turned last October.

It is impossible to disentangle Italian debt sustainability from the scope, size and design of the @ecb’s market operations.

Italy’s debt is sustainable if #ECB deems it so through its actions. It is not, if #ECB expresses doubts about its sustainability

A circular question!
Put differently, the ECB and Italy are pathologically co-dependant.

Now that Italy is in the #Eurozone, it’s future depends on the @ECB.

At the same time, an #ECB that out of neglect and inaction, or something worse, sows doubts about #Italy, will bring about its own demise!
The @ecb is not your normal #OECD country central bank.

It has a formal “price stability” (#inflation) mandate. But the informal mandate to “hold the #eurozone together” is arguably even more important.

Whenever there is a clash between the two goals, the second will triumph!

Thread alert!🧵 Myself and @E3G colleagues had been toying around with writing a blog summarising the impacts of the #Russia/Ukraine crisis on the global #coal-to-clean transition, when it was pointed out that any such blog would be outdated and irrelevant within days.
Instead, we’ve decided to pull together a regularly updated meta-thread bringing together the sharpest analysis out there. A few caveats to kick things off…
The Russian invasion of #Ukraine is clearly a very fluid situation, and at the centre of it lies a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions. People are dying and lives ruined. This is *not* something to refer to as an ‘opportunity’ (looking at some #climate commentators, here).

Deutschland wird sein Wohlstandsniveau auf diesem Kurs nicht halten können, denn wir haben:

1. eine erodierende Erwerbsbevölkerung
2. deutlich zurückgehende Produktivitätsfortschritte
3. ein zurückgehendes #Bildungsniveau
4. eine verfallende Infrastruktur
5. die zweithöchste #Abgabenlast der #OECD (belastet hauptsächlich die Mittelschicht => Spitzensteuersatz ab Faktor 1.3 des Durschnittverdiensts => verjagt jährlich ~200.000 qualifizierte Bürger)
6. ein nicht nachhaltiges Rentensystem (soziale Spannungen)
7. ein labiles Währungsumfeld, in dem wir Hauptfinanzier sind (Target 2 Forderungen & Schuldenunion)
8. die ineffizienteste Energiewende der Welt („Stupid German politicians“, Financial Times)
9. sind Gläubiger in einer überschuldeten Welt => riskieren Zahlungsausfälle

Toward a new global governance. A corporate coup d'état, global in scale, long in the making. Covid as pretext.

Schwab, #WEF: "What we are really proud of now, [is] the young generation. Like PM #Trudeau, the President of Argentina, & so on. So we penetrate the cabinets..."
Schwab continues: "So yesterday, I was at a reception for PM #Trudeau. And I know that half of this cabinet, or even more than half of this cabinet, are actually Young Global Leaders of the world."

"The World Government Summit is the only global organization dedicated to shaping the future of governments & setting the agenda for the next generation of governments worldwide."

The intent of social emotional learning from the beginning was indoctrinating our children through social behaviorism into particular ideologies (CSE, CRT, Gender Theory, Climate Change) and to weave it into a social credit score system so that they would comply. #SELscore #OECD… “The skills, attitudes, and values that shape human behavior should be rethought, to counter the discriminatory behaviors picked up at school and in the family” teach young people “to challenge cultural and gender stereotypes.”
“(OECD) is seeking to measure student personality to gather policy-relevant insights for participating countries. The inevitable consequence in countries with disappointing results will be new policies and interventions to improve students’ personalities..."
