A Pole goes into detail on the more exotic intra-EU tax avoidance schemes
‘One of the Swiss tricks is a real estate relief. The holdings could deduct from the tax base the mortgage taken on the property. You say: nothing extraordinary, in many countries companies can deduct interest. But there you could deduct the entire capital installment! What does it mean? That holding, instead of paying taxes, bought the property. After five years they were the owner of a large hotel or office building.’

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.
