UK GDP growth – beware the march of the spenders | Business | The Guardian
the breakdown was deeply troubling. What it showed was an economy unhealthily reliant on consumer spending. Real household spending was up 0.7% on the quarter and added 0.5 percentage points to the growth rate. In other words, the other components of growth – investment, trade and government spending – contributed -0.1 points to growth during the first three months of the year. [...] drop in business investment, which was down both over the quarter and over the year. //&! bit.ly/1RjxDnh - Making things matters. This is what Britain forgot. Ha-Joon Chang.

PANAMA PAPERS: WHAT STANLEY KUBRICK CAN TEACH YOU ABOUT TAX SHELTERS
While Britain announced Friday it would be joining the European Union’s largest economies—including Germany, France, Italy and Spain—in sharing information about the secret owners of businesses and trusts that may be avoiding taxes, it does not appear Britain’s agreement extends to its overseas territories and crown dependencies, where much of the offshore wealth is hidden. In addition to Jersey, these British territories and dependencies include Bermuda, Gibraltar and the British Virgin Islands, which is home to the Kubrick family fortune.

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.

Mossack Fonseca: The Nazi, CIA And Nevada Connections... And Why It's Now Rothschild's Turn
What the story is about is the nebulous world of offshore tax evasion and tax havens, which based on data from the World Bank, IMF, UN, and central banks, hide between $21 and $32 trillion, where registered incorporation agents and law firms in small Caribbean countries (and not so small US states) make the laundering of money and the "disappearance" of the super wealthy, into untracable numbers hidden behind shell companies, possible. [...] Why is Nevada important? Because recall that according to a recent investigation by Bloomberg, "The World’s Favorite New Tax Haven Is the United States" ... [...] Rothschild’s Penney wrote that the U.S. “is effectively the biggest tax haven in the world.”

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

Is Stephen Crabb the man to tackle this age of extreme inequality?
The Panama Papers will lead to the dynamiting of Tory credibility, but new work and pensions secretary, Stephen Crabb, is unlikely to prove the saviour of his party’s reputation. [...] Last autumn’s U-turn over cuts to working tax credits was a smoke screen. The axe will fall, only not everywhere, not just yet. From this week, existing universal credit claimants will lose up to £220 a month as the work allowance is pared back faster than the national living wage increases to replace it. [...] Short of taking a vow of poverty and retreating like Charles V to a monastery, there is nothing he can say now that will change the perception that he is at the head of a party that has a fundamental personal interest in preserving the advantages of the 1%.

Universal credit cuts to lose low-income families up to £200 a month
[ UC is a backdoor welfare cut ] Changes to be introduced on Monday will push more low-paid working families into poverty, charities say. Tens of thousands of low-paid working families can expect to lose up to £200 a month as a result of changes to universal credit introduced on Monday – the first wave of £3bn in welfare cuts that will affect 1m households by 2020. [...] a full-time single parent would have to work a 14-month year. [...] The cuts stem from changes in the work allowance unveiled by the chancellor, George Osborne, in his summer budget a year ago. These drastically reduced the amount people can earn before low-wage top-ups are withdrawn at the rate of 65p per £1 earned.

Panama Papers Warum der Zynismus, mit dem die Leaks vielfach aufgenommen wurden, die falsche Reaktion auf die Enthüllungen ist [...] So wie es keine Neuigkeit ist, dass die globale Finanzelite sich eine juridisch-ökonomische Parallelwelt geschaffen hat. [...] Dennoch ist der fatalistische Zynismus, mit dem die Leaks vielerorts aufgenommen wurden, nicht nur falsch, sondern sogar gefährlich. Aus zwei Gründen: zum einen, weil der Zynismus eine Sprache ist, die der Neoliberalismus perfekt beherrscht. „Der Zyniker“, so schreibt etwa der Philosoph Franco Berardi, „ist ein leichter Schläfer: Er schläft traumlos und wacht auf, sobald die Macht ihn ruft.“ Wer sich in solcher Abgeklärtheit einrichtet, muss sich nicht wundern, wenn am Ende alles so bleibt, wie es ist.

Why Everyone Must Get Ready For The 4th Industrial Revolution
For example, as automation increases, computers and machines will replace workers across a vast spectrum of industries, from drivers to accountants and estate agents to insurance agents. By one estimate, as many as 47 percent of U.S. jobs are at risk from automation. Many experts suggest that the fourth industrial revolution will benefit the rich much more than the poor, especially as low-skill, low-wage jobs disappear in favor of automation.

But this isn’t new. Historically, industrial revolutions have always begun with greater inequality followed by periods of political and institutional change. The industrial revolution that began at the beginning of the 19th century originally led to a huge polarization of wealth and power, before being followed by nearly 100 years of change including the spread of democracy, trade unions, progressive taxation and the development of social safety nets.

Where are all the Americans in the Panama Papers?
The Panama Papers leak has captured heads of state like Vladimir Putin and the leader of Iceland, but it hasn't mentioned many Americans, at least so far. Why? Perhaps because America is a pretty great place for rich Americans to hide their money. Meanwhile, the law firm at the center of the shell company-tax evasion scandal, Mossack Fonseca, is scaling back its operations now that -- in its own words -- "the cat is out of the bag." //&! http://bloom.bg/228ukpg //&! http://www.vox.com/2016/4/3/11356326/panama-papers

BBC - History - British History in depth: The Darien Venture
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-27392838 - What can Scotland learn from failed Darien venture? 13 May 2014 Last updated at 12:56 BST The Darien venture was an ambitious plan to create a New Scotland in Central America in the late 1690s, but it failed dramatically. The aim was to establish a wealthy Scots colony, but within two years the dream was over, with half of the colonists dead and Scotland itself bankrupted. Many experts believe the financial ramifications led directly to the Act of Union with England in 1707. Allan Little visits Panama for BBC Newsnight and considers what can be learned from the failed venture ahead of Scotland's independence referendum on 18 September. || http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darien_scheme + http://www.educationscotland.gov.uk/scotlandshistory/unioncrownsparliaments/dariencolony/index.asp
