“Countries are losing a total of $483 billion in tax a year to global tax abuse committed by multinational corporations and wealthy individuals – enough to fully vaccinate the global population against Covid-19 more than three times over.”
Each jurisdiction is graded with a Haven Score out of 100
0 means the jurisdiction’s tax and financial systems allow no scope for corporate tax abuse
100 means this country allows unrestrained corporate tax abuse (and should be sanctioned!)
Haven Scores are based on 20 indicators
Jurisdictions can dig into their Haven Score assessments to identify the harmful laws and loopholes they can amend to reduce their enabling of global corporate tax abuse (register to download detailed data)
General Wesley Clark: “About 10 days after 9/11, I went through the Pentagon, and I saw Secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz. I went downstairs just to say hello to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me, and one of the generals called me in. He said, “Sir, you’ve got to come in and talk to me a second.” I said, “Well, you’re too busy.” He said, “No, no.” He says, “We’ve made the decision we’re going to war with Iraq.” This was on or about the 20th of September. I said, “We’re going to war with Iraq? Why?” He said, “I don’t know.” He said, “I guess they don’t know what else to do.” So I said, “Well, did they find some information connecting Saddam to al-Qaeda?” He said, “No, no.” He says, “There’s nothing new that way. They just made the decision to go to war with Iraq.” (source democracynow.org)
Refugees as a weapon: Minsk takes revenge on EU sanctions
EU is ruled by incompetent idiots (all lawyers and lobbyists)
In the past the hardcore Catholic Poland did not accept ANY refugees and here again Polish won’t accept or tolerate ANY (largely Muslim refugees) in or through their country.
Parts of mankind are still in the middle ages.
After thousands have drowned in the not so small but warmer than Atlantic ocean that is called the Mediterranean Sea (the “natural border” between Africa in the South and Europe in the North)
it’s not the first refugees to come to the EU / DE, you might think that the EU has developed a system or a plan to deal with such situations occurring again and again: apparently not, no system no plan. this is a massive EU failure.
this is exactly how massive massive problems remain unresolved by those lawyers and lobbyists politicians IDIOTS – FOREVER.
because: “the EU” (aka lawyers and lobbyists politicians IDIOTS) have STILL no solution for those refugees
because their lobbyists do not care about refugees, because they do not bring money (except maybe drive up house prices)
imho: EU go dissolve!
two possible options:
1. EU will give Poland money to fly all migrants back to their home countries and then send the Bill to be split between Belarus, France (helped remove Qaddafi) and Saudi Arabia (with US bombs are contributing to refugees fleeing)
2. all migrants will go in detention, one by one interviewed with a lie detector and who is actually a doctor or nurse can stay, the rest must board a plane and go back to their home countries
