Aviso: Esta noticia tiene más de un año. Última actualización: 22/07/2012 MADRID, 22 Jul. (EUROPA PRESS) - Un estudio realizado por el grupo Tax Justice Network ha revelado que existen entre 17 y 26 billones de euros escondidos en paraísos fiscales, que habrían aportado 230.000 millones de euros en concepto de recaudación por impuestos.

El grupo, dirigido por el antiguo economista principal de la consultora McKinsey y experto en paraísos fiscales, James Henry, estima que estas cantidades se encuentran concentradas en "jurisdicciones enormemente proteccionistas", como Suiza o las islas Caimán, con la ayuda de bancos privados que tienen el objetivo de atraer a los llamados "individuos de alto valor neto".

La riqueza de estas élites económicas, según Henry, está "protegida "por un grupo de profesionales, muy bien pagado y disciplinado, que se aprovechan de una economía global cada vez más transfronteriza y con menos fricciones".

Most of what you learned growing up about money, income, and wealth are not true. This is understandable - think about whom you first learned them from (odds are good, it was from those who were not rich themselves). From confusing high incomes with wealth to not knowing the importance of tax asset placement when choosing your investments, after reading this special, it might make more sense to you why some professional athletes making $20 million a year quickly go bankrupt, while a bus driver can retire a multi-millionaire and have no financial worries.

Currency changes affect you, whether you are actively trading in the foreign exchange market, planning your next vacation, shopping online for goods from another country—or just buying food and staples imported from abroad.

Top 5 Factors Affecting Exchange Rates

Like any commodity, the value of a currency rises and falls in response to the forces of supply and demand. Everyone needs to spend, and consumer spending directly affects the money supply (and vice versa). The supply and demand of a country’s money is reflected in its foreign exchange rate. When a country’s economy falters, consumer spending declines and trading sentiment for its currency turns sour, leading to a decline in that country’s currency against other currencies with stronger economies.

A source at the Elysée palace said secret services were "investigating a Chinese link" in the scandal after the company suspended three senior executives for allegedly committing "very serious faults". The Winners Curse: Too Big to Succeed? by Robert Arnott, Lillian Wu. Much ink has been spilled on the perils of allowing some companies to become “too big to fail.”

The Winners Curse: Too Big to Succeed? by Robert Arnott, Lillian Wu

This assumes that governments, hence taxpayers, must foot the bill when these Top Dogs become seriously ill, while reinforcing a view that the Top Dogs, whose failure might do systemic damage, should be heavily regulated to mitigate the damage that they might cause. The flip side of this view receives scant attention: companies can become “too big to succeed.” El nuevo IVA frenará el consumo y ahogará a algunos sectores. Cuando un Gobierno sube el IVA, las empresas tienen tres opciones: subir los precios en consonancia con el incremento del impuesto; mantener el coste para el cliente y sacrificar parte de los beneficios para asumir esa mayor presión fiscal o repartir la carga de la subida entre compañía y comprador.

Un banco francés de hace 375 años perdona las deudas a los más pobres de París. Al igual que Francia esta siendo castigado por un excesivo endeudamiento nacional con una rebaja de la deuda soberana, miles de afortunados del pueblo francés tenía sus obligaciones financieras perdonadas después que el mayor banco del país decidió eliminar simplemente su deuda e hizo borrón y cuenta nueva. Pero claro, la cuantía es pequeña. Los 3.500 clientes que se beneficiaron de la generosidad del banco tenían deudas por 150 euros o menos (unos US $ 190) con el Crédit Municipal de París, también conocido como el “Mont-de-piété,” el banco de los pobres, que durante siglos ha permitido a los necesitados obtener préstamos y microcréditos.

Merkel Hardens Resistance to Euro-Area Debt Sharing. Chancellor Angela Merkel hardened her resistance to euro-area debt sharing to resolve the region’s financial crisis, setting Germany on a collision course with its allies at a summit of European leaders this week.

Merkel Hardens Resistance to Euro-Area Debt Sharing

Merkel, speaking to a conference in Berlin today as Spain announced it would formally seek aid for its banks, dismissed “euro bonds, euro bills and European deposit insurance with joint liability and much more” as “economically wrong and counterproductive,” saying that they ran against the German constitution. “It’s not a bold prediction to say that in Brussels most eyes -- all eyes -- will be on Germany yet again,” Merkel said. “I say quite openly: when I think of the summit on Thursday I’m concerned that once again the discussion will be far too much about all kinds of ideas for joint liability and far too little about improved oversight and structural measures.” ‘Wrong Direction’ Twitter mood predicts the stock market with 86.7% accuracy. Some people think Twitter is about sharing pointless little messages or about self promotion.

The Real Reason I’m a Trader » Rogue Traderette. When I was in year 10, my whole year group got carted off to a huge Career Expo in the hope that we would all magically discover the job we were destined for. As I walked around, I was drawn to nothing. Well, not nothing exactly, there were lots of handsome private school boys to look at, and they were far more interesting than the desks full of free stickers from the Health Department. So, rather than using the opportunity to dig deep and research potential careers, I decided I knew exactly what I was interested in and headed straight for the Defense Force display.

Barclays: Las claves de un fraude que sacude a la banca y revela las diferencias con España

Ya en 1816 Thomas Jefferson escribía en una carta a un senador que "sinceramente, creo que las entidades bancarias son más peligrosas que los ejércitos listos para el combate". Casi 200 años después, tras la crisis del sistema financiero que estalló en 2008 como consecuencia de las llamadas hipotecas basura, tras los rescates millonarios a la banca con dinero público, y, más recientemente, tras los escándalos de Bankia en España, JPMorgan en EE UU, o Barclays en el Reino Unido, las palabras del que fuera tercer presidente de los Estados Unidos parecen, si no proféticas, sí bastante acertadas. Lo peor, además, puede estar aún por llegar. En España, sin embargo, los representantes políticos no han sido capaces de ponerse de acuerdo para aprobar una comisión de investigación, bloqueada por la mayoría del PP y con poco apoyo del PSOE.

Ed Nacional For a short time, Americans seemed to be born-again savers. In the second quarter of 2009, in the depths of the Great Recession, households put away 7 percent of disposable income, compared with under 2 percent in the third quarter of 2007. Yet the savings rate is falling again, down to 5.3 percent in December. According to a Harris Poll released last week, 27 percent of Americans have no personal savings and 34 percent have no retirement savings, an increase from over a year ago.

With the Prime Minister as the ex-officio Chairman, the commission has a nominated Deputy Chairman, who holds the rank of a Cabinet Minister. Montek Singh Ahluwalia is currently the Deputy Chairman of the Commission. The Eleventh Plan completed its term in March 2012 and the Twelfth Plan is currently underway.[1] Prior to the Fourth Plan, the allocation of state resources was based on schematic patterns rather than a transparent and objective mechanism, which led to the adoption of the Gadgil formula in 1969. Revised versions of the formula have been used since then to determine the allocation of central assistance for state plans.[2] History[edit]
