3:24 am
a good idea to talk about politics or policy with a glass of wine in your hand and excellent food offered by a person who has clear interests to represent and then there is a little less transparent lobby because there are members of industry associations well they have consultants working for them so you talk to people and you don't realize if they are representing the interests of google or facebook or silicon valley because the names are different these lobbyists seem to have some very deep pockets according to transparency international in 2019 google spent some 8000000 euros trying to get into brussels good graces while the lobbying budgets of the big 4 have skyrocketed since 2014 so why is this new digital tax regime causing them such a headache well until recently most digital giants pay their tax bill in the country where they're registered but as they've grown questions are being asked as to why they were paying tax income derived in individual countries their fronts led

discriminatory in nature but it seems with a new terror threat so almost a weekly basis from the trumpet ministration the french are boyd by the idea of safety in numbers what will they do tomorrow go off to austria and spain italy the united kingdom all the other countries across the globe that will implement digital tax we're going to order global trade which is in nobody's interest and the result is not worth the effort it's taken them a while but it does appear that all e.u. countries are now on the same page all in agreement that they should be taxing digital giants which means if no agreement is made globally in the next few months starting with talks in paris next week the us and e.u. the old allies could find themselves going head to head. paris. economics professor steve keen believes america's push for its own national
3:27 am
interests is having a detrimental effect on everybody else. since trump is in charge he'll do whatever he sees as being a win situation for america and a loss for the rest of the world i think in the case of the because these companies are mainly american out and he's going to impose taxes on them and they'll continue without english axis and he could easily threaten to cut access to the guts of the countries if they are the companies such as there are if there are quantify taxes in national jurisdictions like europe he would probably think they have to pay taxes in america from income globally and of course that undermines the whole idea of having national succession systems we next seeking justice in new jersey offer downloads shooting his documentary shadow with stray bullet it will back in if i think it's time for the likes.
