    It's little wonder that the United States Internal Revenue Service is providing the worst level of service in its history – well, that is, since such things began to be measured at any rate, which was actually only 14 years ago...

    It's nice to be able to welcome France's support for apprenticeship as a means for assisting youngsters into the workforce, even if the Constitutional Court had to stop the Government from doing a bit of gerrymandering by distributing its largesse mostly to friendly regions. The failure of other nations to copy Germany in its devotion to the concept of apprenticeship is nearly inexplicable. Actually, I can see where it's coming from: if you are a fan of equality, opportunity for all and the rest, then you want to give less bright children and those from poorer backgrounds the opportunity to shine at senior school, and go to University (to get a useless degree in media studies). Unfortunately, the result is to deprive the "old" industries of skilled workers, and to inflate the pool of unemployed and unemployable youth.

    Company law is a fairly dull subject, but nothing is more infuriating than having to negotiate your way through forests of ambiguous, bureaucratic legislation when trying to set up a new company, organize a takeover or issue shares. It's good for lawyers of course, but in the end even they should probably be in favour of simplicity, because if no-one wants to set up in your jurisdiction there won't be any work at all! Hong Kong is near the end of a comprehensive re-write of its companies law, which will considerably improve clarity and transparency. Not that the old law seems to have stopped new entrants from flooding in.
