Pour "rigoler" un petit pronostic:

Fin d’année 2020: le gouvernement continue de s'entêter dans la croyance au "ruissèlement". Tous les plans d'aides sont conçus comme un soutien inconditionnel aux entreprises, sans considération pour le soutien des ménages.

1/n (c'est long)
Début 2021 : pour les mêmes raisons idéologiques, le gouvernement continue de s'entêter sur la #dette, place les mesures de soutien au bilan de la Sécu et non pas de l'Etat pour contraindre son remboursement. De nouvelles mesures d'austérité sont annoncées pour les compenser.
L'économie continue de vivoter artificiellement par perfusion d’argent public : le ministre de l’économie et le 1er ministre annoncent un nouveau plan de soutien aux entreprises sur la base de leur chiffre d’Affaire passé, le "Plan de Soutien Final Pour la Reprise" (PSFPR)

#WEF & Prince of Wales: The Green Horizon Summit: Nov. 9-11 2020. Attended by 2500. Led by 100+ corporate & climate "leaders" including "Prince" Charles, UN's Guterres, Lagarde, Carney, BlackRock, etc.


Let's start w/ the ruling class imperative to rebrand #capitalism (Oct, 23, 2020) - in order to save it.

Schwab: "At the forefront [we need] to create a new model,
a new concept, a new definition of capitalism...

Schwab, continued: "the old definition comprises only financial capital. But actually human & social capital, [] & of course natural capital - is as important as financial capital."

#SoGeht1Komma5 von #FridaysForFuture ist verdienstvoll 1. Begrenzung auf 1,5 Grad möglich. 2. dt. Klimaziele reichen nicht! 3. Im Vergleich zu Aktionsplan @Linksfraktion gibt's Leerstellen,besonders bei Sozial-, Handels-,Friedenspolitik & #Klimagerechtigkeit . Thread in 10Teilen
1. #Klimagerechtigkeit bedeutet, den globalen Süden im Blick zu haben. Nur mit globaler Gerechtigkeit, Ende (fossiler) Ausbeutung wird es was. Das hat auch die #Oxfam-Studie eindringlich gezeigt (1/10)…

2. Klimaschutz bedeutet, in Deutschland für Gerechtigkeit zu sorgen. Make the rich pay gilt nicht nur für #Corona-, sondern auch #klimakrise. Wer nicht soziale Spaltung in Gesellschaft angreift,wird bei Klimagerechtigkeit scheitern. (2/10)…

Earthquake in international #tax world with US pulling out or pausing the #OECD negotiations aka #BEPS2.

A quick personal take in this thread. #Oxfam reaction will come in the next hours.

What does this mean for the EU? Is the USA all bad?

Let's recall this process started with a high amount of ambition in January 2019 with buy-in from the USA. Actually the USA was the one opening up the discussion with its own tax reform. Let's also remember there are 2 pillars.

Pillar 1 = digital economy. Pillar 2 = minimum tax.
The pulling out of the US or the ask to pause the negotiations seems to only hit pillar 1.

Pillar 1 divided countries from the very start. Some countries wanted a very limited focus (only techgiants) and others wanted to broaden the scope.

Actually the USA wanted a broad scope.

I got a lot of questions recently on #tax policy developments in the #Netherlands. So here is a thread!

A lot has happened in the past 2 months. I will try to give a complete overview with implications and consequences for one of the largest #taxhavens in the world.

Enjoy! 👇🇳🇱
First a general comment.

Over the past weeks the Netherlands has been extensively portrayed as a harmful tax haven in the EU, especially by southern European countries.

Many numbers circulate about the Netherlands but sums it up pretty well.
Several reports have been published in the NL in the past 2 months:

(1) The long-awaited report of an independent commission (known as Adviescommissie ter Haar) on how the NL should reform its laws to make multinationals pay their fair share. 👉…

Parliamo di spin doctor in politica.
Figura mitologica, mezzo influencer e mezzo algoritmo, capace di orientare le masse a suo piacimento, incurante dei danni che i suoi intenti provocano all'intera comunità.
La sua missione è creare consenso e a quanto sembra, con >>
qualsiasi mezzo.
Gli studiati, lo chiamano engagement, che in effetti sembra essere più consono, in quanto tiene conto anche delle reazioni negative.
Oggi sembra che se non ne hai uno, non sei nessuno.
Forse è anche vero ma anche più sano.
Eh sì, più sano e vediamo perché. >>
Iniziamo col chiederci a cosa serve avere qualcuno che cura la comunicazione di un politico, quando esso è, per antonomasia, colui che più di tutti, grazie alle idee e al carisma, in grado di farsi seguire da milioni di persone.
È evidente che, maggiore è l'importanza dello SD,>>

[thread] Pochi fortunati possiedono più ricchezze di miliardi di poveracci. Anche quest’anno, @Oxfam diffonde il suo rapporto su #povertà e #disuguaglianze nella settimana di #Davos. Ma è davvero così?… 1/n
@Oxfam Il rapporto ripete da diversi anni un mantra: le "crescenti" disuguaglianze sono il frutto di un “sistema economico difettoso e sessista”. Per dimostrarlo, confronta i patrimoni dei miliardari con quelli delle persone normali 2/n
@Oxfam Nel passato, un numero sempre più ampio di economisti ha denunciato la metodologia di @oxfam, che confronta acriticamente grandezze diverse. Qui il rapporto e le note metodologiche: 3/n

As we peel back the layers of an orchestrated movement that serves to protect the ruling classes & the suicidal capitalist system itself, we need to look at Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy. This will be a long & important thread. #FridaysForFinance
The Compact of Mayors officially merged w/ the Covenant of Mayors in 2016. The Global Covenant of Mayors [for Climate and Energy] unites more than 9209 cities (already committed) in 132 countries across 6 continents. This represents the world's largest coalition.
The Board is co-chaired by European Commission Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič and former New York City Mayor and U.N. Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Climate Action Michael Bloomberg. Former UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres serves as Vice-Chair.

1. L’idée véhiculée derrière le rapport d’#Oxfam est tacite mais redoutable: si on expropriait les milliardaires de la Silicon valley, le Monde irait bien mieux. Notamment les plus pauvres!C’est un raisonnement intuitif mais qui est totalement faux.
2. Car l’expropriation des riches aboutirait à une nationalisation massive d’entreprises privées. Un riche comme Jeff Bezos n’a pas des centaines de millards de dolls en cash: il a cette valeur par le biais de titres sociaux [actions, parts sociales etc].
3. L’expropriation aurait pour conséquence de faire passer sous pavillon étatique des entreprises performantes. Plus prosaïquement, cela signifierait que l’entreprise ne serait plus privée mais publique.

#Thread en réaction au rapport #Oxfam intitulé "CAC 40, des profits sans partage". Comme toujours avec ces "études", un message choc et 2-3 chiffres clés pour être sûr d'être repris par la presse. 1/
2/ Le message est ici très simple : entre 2009 et 2016, sur 100 euros de bénéfices, les entreprises du CAC 40 ont versé en moyenne 67,4 euros de dividendes aux actionnaires, 27,3 euros pour le réinvestissement et... 5,3 euros pour les salariés.
3/ Moralité explicite : les grands groupes français, plutôt que d'investir ou de verser une rémunération complémentaire à leurs salariés, privilégient le capital et les actionnaires. Dans un climat social tendu, voilà un thème "porteur"...

Donc @lemondefr reprend sans recul le rapport erroné d'une organisation militante et évoque à tort des salariés oubliés, alors que la part du travail dans la valeur ajoutée ne recule pas, et un investissement à risque, alors que son niveau est au plus haut depuis 1974... #Oxfam
Un exemple parmi bien d'autres de la fumisterie du rapport #Oxfam : comparer un ratio dividendes/résultat net en normes IFRS pour le CAC 40 et un ratio dividendes/excédent brut d'exploitation en comptabilité nationale pour les entreprises (SNF) en France....
La question n'étant évidemment pas les chiffres de l'Insee, mais le rapprochement par #Oxfam de ratios qui n'ont rien à voir comme s'il s'agissait de la même chose.
