#Germany 🇩🇪 is overpaying for #climateprotection by 183 bln USD or 4.5 percent of #GDP. 📉🌍 @BjornLomborg #FalseAlarm #climate #economy /1
How can I argue this? First, I took #Germany's long-term #GDP forecast up to 2060 by the #OECD (2020-2050, in USD, dark blue line). /2
Then I corrected this #GDP #growth forecast with #Germany's expected average annual expenditures for climate protection estimated by the #KfW (ca. 5.2 percent of GDP annually!, green line). /3

Been reading a ton about the Pandora Papers. Here's the thing - what rich people, politicians and cricketers may be doing might not be illegal.

Here's a Pandora Papers 101 📓

#PandoraPapers #tax Image
1/ There are at least 380 persons of Indian nationality in the Pandora Papers.

These documents relate to the ultimate ownership of assets ‘settled’ (or placed) in private offshore trusts.

Corporate mumbo jumbo is cut out. This looks at who is the real owner of an asset.
2/ Ugh. What's this trust you keep speaking of?

Without getting into the legal mumbo jumbo of it, a trustee (a third party) holds assets on behalf of individuals that are to benefit from it (beneficiaries).

An efficient #GST with high boyancy, needs uniform 15% rate on 3/4th of Goods & services, exemption(0%) on basic food, drugs, health services & education(~1/10 of G&S), & higher rates (avg 30% inclusive of cess) on cigarettes & Autos(~1/10th). Drop higher revenue/rate obsession
2/gst The #GSTcouncil's obsession with immediate revenue raising by increasing rates, is damaging macro economy, by negatively impacting MSME/informal employment, income & consumption, and doing long term damage to inclusive growth and sustained higher revenues for development
3/gst Though in normal circumstances I recommend revenue neutral reform, in current depressed environment, revenue negative reform of GST is preferable to revenue positive GST reform, because it will provide a demand stimulus which will quickly recover the short term revenue loss

At first glance, there's some fundamental flaws in this “study” from the @USChamber today (featured in @Morning_Tax)

It takes many leaps of logic to think ending the carried interest #tax loophole will lose the US ~5 million(!) jobs. The Chamber needs to try again 🧵
What’s going on?

Biden proposes closing a loophole letting Private Equity and Venture Capital managers pay 20% cap gains rate instead of the regular 39.6%

The Chamber says this costs as many jobs as in the state of Georgia and billions of tax $.

The argument is quite shaky
Flaw 1: The Chamber’s own appendix

The Chamber says:Upping PE&VC managers’ taxes hurts firms activity, but offers no evidence.

Q:what happened when their taxes rose⬆️33% (5pp) in 2012?
A:PE deals increased, the opposite of what this “study” claims!

Why's this time different?

If you are a regular shopper, you might have noticed that women’s products cost more than the male equivalent or generic products.

Is this a fluke, or are #women paying more for products made for them?

Turns out, yes, women pay an invisible cost in the form of “The Pink Tax”👇
But the catch is - it’s not really a legitimate #tax imposed by the govt. It’s a cost added on products that are marketed towards women. The packaging on these products is often pink, ergo the name.
For eg, a study in the US found that the ingredients in shampoos & deodorants are almost identical for men & women, but prices for female-targeted items were nearly twice as much. Reports suggest that this pink tax costs women $2135 a year.

So here’s the scoop on the new child tax credit changes. It’s being implemented very quickly. It’s using some of the same infrastructure set up for the economic impact (stimulus payments) but it’s different in many ways. #tax #CTC #TaxTwitter
Here’s the gist of it, tho there’s situations that I won’t cover here. Please consult a tax professional for advice in your own situation. This does not constitute advice in your particular situation.
Over the past couple years, the max child tax credit has been $2,000 per child. This is being raised to $3,000 for 2021 per child age 6 - 17 at the end of 2021, and $3,600 per child under 6 at end of 21.

Boris Johnson has said that he would rather 'Let the Bodies Pile High' than impose another #Lockdown.

After he was washing his hands, keeping Tory Donors businesses open while our loved ones died.

@Conservatives must go now! 🚫

Tweet your MP about No 10…
"No more ****ing lockdowns – let the bodies pile high in their thousands."

The @Conservatives Libertarian Vote Leave Cabinet oversaw one of the highest #COVID19 death rates in the World.

Boris Johnson lied, loved ones died. He refuses to speak to victims…
#COVID19 gave Boris Johnson and the @Conservatives opportunity to make more money

The more old and shielding people that died, the less pension/ #NHS expenditure the Exchequer has

The more to spend on #ToryCronyism.

Billions that cannot be used for #NHS…
