Fast food, Fat profits: Obesity in America - YouTube
Obesity in America has reached a crisis point. Two out of every three Americans are overweight, one out of every three is obese. One in three are expected to have diabetes by 2050. &!

Sell high calorie foods in plain packaging to beat obesity, says Brain Prize winner | Science | The Guardian Peter Dayan, Ray Dolan and Wolfram Schultz share €1m neuroscience prize for work unravelling the brain’s reward system Selling high calorie foods in plain packaging could help in the battle against obesity according to a leading researcher who has won a share of the most lucrative prize in neuroscience for his work on the brain’s reward system. The colourful wrapping and attractive advertising of calorie-rich foods encourage people to buy items that put them at risk of overeating and becoming obese in the future, said Wolfram Schultz, a professor of neuroscience at the University of Cambridge. “We should not advertise, propagate or encourage the unnecessary ingestion of calories,” [ ... dopamine is released in anticipation of a reward, not just consumption of reward, thus seeing comfort food packaging and buying it, releases dopamine = walking into today's supermarket is dopamine rush for some, a high, irresistible, can not stop themselves from buying them 50/50 sugar/fat combos! ]

Theresa May must take £115bn hint from Kraft Heinz's failed Unilever bid | Business | The Guardian
Warren Buffett and 3G were apparently surprised at hostility from Unilever’s board – but PM must use this bid as cue to form proper policy on takeovers [...] Kraft’s crew of billionaires should get out more. Did they miss the debates that have raged over rootless global companies, asset-stripping deals and the UK’s open-doors policy on takeovers? Hostility was predictable and justified.

Unilever’s board was always likely to reject the chance to be bought by a financier-led firm in search of another target for its job-cutting formula. [...] If Buffett and Jorge Paulo Lemann, 3G’s co-founder, couldn’t see outrage in the offing, they were astonishingly naive.

The UK’s vegetable shortage was not a blip – it’s a sign of things to come | Felicity Lawrence | Opinion | The Guardian
But when you take into account climate change, the shortages of early 2017 look more like a taste of things to come than just a blip, and that is almost impossible for supermarkets to admit. [...] First, it depends on the profligate use of finite resources – water, soil, and fossil fuels (with all their greenhouse gas emissions).

Businesses must alter 'toxic' attitude to executive pay, PwC says | Business | The Guardian
Companies have failed to address a “toxic” attitude towards executive pay and face a government crackdown if they do not act to curb boardroom excess, according to a report by consultancy group PricewaterhouseCoopers.

In polling carried out by PwC last month, two-thirds of Britons said they believed executive pay was too high, and nearly three-quarters said it made them angry if a chief executive was paid a lot while their company was doing badly.

Ed Miliband says Panama Papers show ‘wealth does not trickle down’
'Since Reagan and Thatcher, the basic view has been, ‘Be nice to the super-rich and their wealth will trickle down.’ [...] In an interview with the Observer, he said he understood why David Cameron defended his father after the Panama revelations were leaked. “But for 30 years, since Reagan and Thatcher, the basic view has been, ‘Be nice to the super-rich and their wealth will trickle down.’ That is the big lesson of Panama for me. It doesn’t trickle down; it gets stashed.” The former Labour leader is helping to promote a new low-budget documentary, the Divide, which explores the wealth gap through seven families striving for a better life in Britain and the United States.

The Fed Sends A Frightening Letter To JPMorgan, Corporate Media Yawns
At the top of page 11, the Federal regulators reveal that they have “identified a deficiency” in JPMorgan’s wind-down plan which if not properly addressed could “pose serious adverse effects to the financial stability of the United States.” Why didn’t JPMorgan’s Board of Directors or its legions of lawyers catch this?

It’s important to parse the phrasing of that sentence. The Federal regulators didn’t say JPMorgan could pose a threat to its shareholders or Wall Street or the markets. It said the potential threat was to “the financial stability of the United States.” [...] “…the default of a bank with a higher connectivity index would have a greater impact on the rest of the banking system because its shortfall would spill over onto other financial institutions, creating a cascade that could lead to further defaults.

A tax inspector calls
That's why the unsnappily-titled Joint International Tax Shelter Information and Collaboration network (JITSIC) is gathered in Paris, under the umbrella of the (cumbersomely-monickered) Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
This so-called 'rich countries club' has been given the task of pursuing the erosion of countries tax bases by multi-national corporations. That much has been agreed by the G7 developed nations group, and the wider G20.
And in researching this, the OECD has come up with some fairly startling findings about the extent to which multi-nationals game the system. [...] As I noted before, they reckon that between $100bn and $240bn of corporate tax goes unpaid because of these accounting practices
