HM Treasury in french Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Le Trésor de Sa Majesté (anglais : Her Majesty's Treasury ou HM Treasury) est un département exécutif du gouvernement britannique chargé de l'élaboration et de la mise en place des finances publiques et des politiques économiques. Il est dirigé par le Chancelier de l'Échiquier. Historique[modifier | modifier le code] Avant 1066 et la conquête normande par Guillaume le Conquérant, les Anglo-Saxons collectaient, évidemment, des impôts (y compris le Danegeld, impôt destiné à payer un tribut aux Vikings pour éviter leur invasion). En 1667, Charles II nomme George Downing (à qui l'on doit Downing Street) pour réformer le Trésor et la perception des impôts. À partir du XVIIe siècle, la gestion du Trésor sera le plus souvent confiée à une commission, plutôt que d'un seul individu, situation qui sera définitive en 1714. Avant 1827, si le Premier Lord du Trésor était roturier, il occupait également le poste de chancelier de l'Échiquier.

HM Treasury In english The Treasury building viewed from St. James' Park The new eastern entrance to HM Treasury Her Majesty's Treasury (HM Treasury), sometimes referred to as the Exchequer, or more informally the Treasury, is the United Kingdom government department responsible for developing and executing the British government's public finance policy and economic policy. History[edit] The beginnings of the treasury of England is traced by some to an individual known as Henry the Treasurer a servant to the king of England, William the Conqueror.[5][6][7] The surety of this beginning is based on an entry in the Domesday Book showing the individual Henry ("the treasurer") as a Winchester landowner, known to be the place where the royal treasure was stored.[8] The Treasury of the United Kingdom traces its origins to the Treasury of the Kingdom of England, which had come into existence by 1126, in the reign of Henry I. The prefix of the department name is changed depending upon who is the reigning monarch.

The Top 5 Facts About America’s Richest 1% | Daily Ticker Follow The Daily Ticker on Facebook here! The American dream is alive and well for the wealthiest 1% of Americans, but unfortunately, if you are in the other 99% the jury is still out. "America is obviously a country where you can go from being middle class to upper class, but right now class mobility has sort of collapsed in the United States," says Zaid Jilani, senior reporter for the progressive think tank (See: America's Middle Class Crisis: The Sobering Facts) This grim reality is in part the impetus for the Occupy Wall Street movement, which, now in its fourth week, will take to the streets of Manhattan's Upper East Side Tuesday in what it is calling the "Millionaire's March." As the Occupy Wall Street movement continues to grow, The Daily Ticker wanted to find out just how rich America's super-rich 1% really is.

David Smith's Austerity myths revisited Posted by David Smith at 01:00 PM Category: Thoughts and responses My piece on Friday, The Myth of Abandoned Austerity, has attracted quite a lot of interest. It had a simple aim - to demonstrate that fiscal consolidation, deficit reduction, continued throughout the parliament, alongside recovery. Simon Wren-Lewis, a professor of economics at Oxford, devoted a blog post to it, here. Jonathan Portes, director of the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, was typically condescending, tweeting that I was "confused (& confusing)". Let me respond to Simon. But Simon answers the question himself: “I know this cannot be the case because I have never said that austerity was abandoned in 2012. That means, he suggests, that I am guilty of creating a straw man. This is not quite the same, of course, as economists that Simon might know saying austerity has been abandoned. (More...)
