    Global Tax Insights

    03 Jan, 2014

    Most countries give some sort of beneficial treatment to investments in technology, particularly start-ups, and this week's particular case is Italy, which will favor young entrepreneurs for the next few years. I do like the fact that there is positive discrimination in favor of women entrepreneurs of any age, while for men only the young ones are rewarded. Given how many Italian men are living at home with their parents, and not just young ones, I predict a rash of granny start-ups: so when in three years' time you see a statistic showing that Italy has the most innovative oldsters in the world, you'll know why. "Cherchez l'impot" is just as true as "Cherchez la femme." More generally, it’s stretching a point to give Italy a prize this week; the Government is bouncing from one crisis to another

    Global Tax Insights

    12 Nov, 2013

    Despite occasional mis-steps, such as over solar panels, and the little “misunderstanding” between the US and Europe over phone bugging, you’ve got to hand it to the EU on the free trade front. A Commission Vice-President weighed in this week in support of the TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership), and talks continued both on an investment agreement with China, and a free trade agreement with Japan. Full marks for trying, but one has to be sceptical about the chances for all three of these deals to come to fruition. Of the three, perhaps the most likely to work out is the China investment deal: it’s a fact that current levels of investment between the two parties are extremely feeble, although the figures given by the Commission may underestimate triangular flows, for instance through Hong Kong into China and via …

    Nothing forced Switzerland into an embrace with the EU

    Kitty Miv, Editor

    17 Oct, 2013

    Let's suppose that one (you, that is, or me) was offered to be Prime Minister of a European country (and for this purpose we won't count Russia as being European in the light of President Putin's recent behaviour) – which one would you choose? Obviously it won't be Ukraine, because you'll end up in prison, or Italy, because you'll hardly be in the job long enough to get to know your chauffeur.

    Pace Mr Lamy, it has been a good week for trade

    Kitty Miv, Editor

    04 Sep, 2013

    As Pascal Lamy bids goodbye (31st August) to the World Trade Organization, he will regret that he was unable to bring the world's squabbling nations into alignment in the Doha Round; but he can reflect that the playing field of the world of trade is a far more level place than when he took office eight years ago, and surely he can take the credit for much of this.
