FEATURE-Scientist seeks to banish evil, boost empathy. * Psychopathology expert says idea of evil has done no good * Sees empathy as world's most valuable but ignored resource By Kate Kelland, Health and Science Correspondent LONDON, May 5 (Reuters) - Simon Baron-Cohen has been battling with evil all his life. As a scientist seeking to understand random acts of violence, from street brawls to psychopathic killings to genocide, he has puzzled for decades over what prompts such acts of human cruelty. Global Integrity. Globalisation isn't just about profits. It's about taxes too. The world looked on agog as Tim Cook, the head of Apple, said his company had paid all the taxes owed – seeming to say that it paid all the taxes it should have paid.

Globalisation isn't just about profits. It's about taxes too

There is, of course, a big difference between the two. It's no surprise that a company with the resources and ingenuity of Apple would do what it could to avoid paying as much tax as it could within the law.
