Das Steuersystem weltweit fairer machen, Steuerdumping vermeiden – das will die OECD mit ihrer Steuerreform erreichen. Zusammen mit Kantonsvertretern gab Finanzminister Ueli Maurer heute die Strategie bekannt, wie die Schweiz den OECD-Mindeststeuersatz von 15 Prozent umsetzen will – und vor allem per wann. Denn bis vor wenigen Monaten bezeichnete Bundesrat Maurer Pläne, eine Umsetzung per 2023 anzustreben, als unrealistisch.

Weitere Themen Im weltweit ersten Prozess über syrische Straffolter hat das Oberlandesgericht Koblenz einen ehemaligen Vernehmungschef des syrischen Geheimdienstes zu lebenslanger Haft verurteilt. Die Richter haben dabei das Vorgehen des Hauptangeklagten als Verbrechen gegen die Menschlichkeit eingestuft - und einen Präzedenzfall geschaffen.

Si quieres unirte a este grupo tan genial, visita: www.cosasdeinternet.fm/mecenas Notas del episodio:  «El dilema de las redes sociales» o «The Social Dilemma», se estrenó en Netflix en septiembre del 2020.  Pero la premier ocurrió en febrero del 2020 en el Festival de Cine de Sundance. En la producción entrevistan más de 20 expertos y esas voces narran el hilo argumentativo. Uno de los protagonistas es Tristan Harris, acá una charla de TED suya (bien puede ser que de ahí sacaron la idea para la dramatización de la consola de control). En esta charla organizada por Google, Jeff Orlowski explica su decisión de incluir dramatizaciones en «El dilema de las redes sociales».  La efectividad de los anuncios en Facebook, en promedio, no supera el 1% de CTR. Luego de que una trabajadora de Facebook compartiera miles de páginas de información sobre la compañía, el Washington Post publicó la investigación «The Facebook Files» donde profundizan en las implicaciones de esa información.  En este artículo de El País aparece un resumen de la historia de la soplona de Facebook: «Facebook admite en documentos internos que Instagram es tóxico para muchas adolescentes». Y esta fue la respuesta de Mark Zuckerberg. El estudio que menciona Santi, donde se examina si hay o no un vínculo entre la salud mental y las redes sociales se llama «The Longitudinal Association Between Social-Media Use and Depressive Symptoms Among Adolescents and Young Adults: An Empirical Reply to Twenge et al.» Y ese estudio es una respuesta a este otro estudio que sí afirma una conexión. Más cosas de salud mental: «Problematic Social Networking Site Use and Comorbid Psychiatric Disorders: A Systematic Review of Recent Large-Scale Studies». Según este reporte de la OECD, la tasa mundial de suicidios en adolescentes de 15 a 19 años ha bajado —ligeramente— en las últimas dos décadas.  Vox publica que nadie sabe la causa del aumento de suicidios de mujeres adolescentes en Estados Unidos: «Teens are increasingly depressed, anxious, and suicidal. How can we help?». Este artículo académico muestra la confusión que hay en estudios de salud mental con relación a las redes sociales. Hay hallazgos de todo tipo: «Social Media Use and Its Connection to Mental Health: A Systematic Review». Cuando este documental lanzó, nosotros acabábamos de publicar «Tranqui, Internet dice que tienes la razón», nuestro episodio sobre polarización en línea.

We explore the importance of making the latest evidence on children's rights and wellbeing accessible to a broad audience, strengthening and framing key arguments by using the most engaging language and communicating with policymakers and politicians so they make informed budgetary and voting decisions. The Institute for Inspiring Children's Futures works with diverse partners, including the OECD, Unicef and the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, and engages with policymakers and politicians internationally. They aim to ensure children facing adversity have what they need to reach their full potential, and much of their focus is on children who come into contact with the justice system. Despite the fact that the wellbeing of children is an important indicator of the future stability of society and prosperity of the economy, there is still far to go to ensure children's rights are realised.

Russell Padmore travels across Ireland to find out how the Irish economy has shrugged off the impact of the pandemic and problems caused by Brexit. It seems foreign investors, especially Irish Americans, are confident that Ireland will enjoy significant growth in 2022, despite the prospect of corporation tax being increased, after the country signed up to a global deal orchestrated by the OECD. Russell's journey from the capital city, Dublin, to the rural north west also includes a trip across the border into Northern Ireland to hear how businesses there are worried about the UK government creating more uncertainty in its economic relationship with the European Union, which could undermine trade with the Irish Republic.

The Cooking Subversive Manifesto

#WhyCook #CSM #LifestyleCookingI came across an article published by the Harvard Business Review in 2017 with a data point that astounded me: only 10% of Americans love to cook.  The article’s author, a consultant for consumer packaged goods companies who did the study for one of his clients, also pointed out that of the 90% who did not love to cook, half hated it and the other half were lukewarm. While I already suspected many Americans didn’t know their way around the kitchen, I didn’t expect how much in a minority avid cooks were and further, to find so disturbing the use of the strong sentiment hate to describe one of my passions. To add insult to injury, the author’s point was not that a valuable life skill was practically lost in this generation, but that groceries and food manufacturers risked market share decline and category obsolescence by not addressing the downward cooking trend.  He advocated for a ruthless portfolio strategy that calls for food manufacturers to identify “long-term losers, and exit by selling them while they can.” My gig as a culinary educator had already began, but these data points upset me and fueled a desire to not just teach cooking, but to promote it as a lifestyle choice.  Teaching how to cook dishes is not hard—you introduce new ingredients, demonstrate and explain the scientific principles behind basic techniques and share the recipes so they can be replicated. But that doesn’t teach you how to cook without a recipe; to cook when you have a busy week or to have fun.  You don’t learn to fall in love with cooking this way. You fall in love with cooking when you produce dishes you’re proud of.  You fall in love with cooking when you find it brings family and friends together. And you know you’re in love when cooking stops being the thing you have to do to eat; or  that instead of trying to fit cooking into a busy schedule, you make your schedule less busy because you’ve realized cooking is a worthier endeavor than other activities that fill your time: television, social media, video games.  You’re in love with cooking when you’re having fun.  That won’t happen to everyone and it certainly will not happen overnight.  Nothing worthwhile is instant, though we’ve been programmed to believe otherwise, since our culture worships convenience and speed. The barriers to entry are low: even dry, over-salted scrambled eggs, barely edible, will pass for cooking.  But good cooking—producing food you’re proud of that you prefer more often to restaurant fare or store-bought packaged foods, or that non-family or friends would willingly choose to eat, well that’s different.  It’s the same difference as when a drunk guest comes up to the band stand to say “hey, I also play in a band,” and I think, well okay, we’re professional musicians with decades of experience, so I’m not sure we’re talking about the same thing here. While there are plenty musicians better than I, I’m willing to bet it’s not this inebriated fellow. But hey, I’m glad he’s playing music. Good cooking, like playing an instrument well, has a higher learning curve.  It will take my piano students many years of practice and scales before they can master a relatively simple piece like Fur Elise. But when they do, they will take pride, and that will be its own reward and a powerful motivator.  Most of my students will have given up long before they get to this level of proficiency.  It takes patience and commitment to play well. Like cooking, there’s a lot of competition for a piano student’s time—school, friends, social media.  Fortunately for cooking, there’s an immediate and practical payback—dinner!  It’s not hard to cook a simple dish well, but another matter to do it consistently and regularly.  All of which takes time, practice and a certain mindset. To get to the point where cooking is its own reward, we’ll need incentives and a game plan to keep us on the path.  Lifestyle CookingLifestyle cooking is a term I’ve coined where we choose to make healthy home cooking part of our lifestyle.  Lifestyle cooking isn’t just about cooking  dishes, it’s reclaiming cooking as a valuable and enjoyable life skill and reframing what we know about the food and farming industries so we can make healthy choices; it’s learning how to shop, organize, share duties, be part of a community; it’s about eating and celebrating. It’s about helping the planet (and ourselves) because learning how to cook and shop means we can reduce the 68% of food we waste in our homes, which will reduce the carbon emissions from global food waste that account for 8% of the world’s carbon footprint.  If global food waste was a country, it would rank third, after the USA and China.    So yes, I’d like to convince the 90% of Americans that don’t love cooking to change their minds. Tough order, right?  But in a weird turn of events none of us could have foreseen, covid-19 happened, life as we knew it changed almost overnight and with many restaurants closed, people started cooking and gardening.  Life slowed down and the Big Quit happened—where a historic number of people quit their jobs to reassess their work-life balance. Nothing like a seismic lifestyle shift and a brush with death to straighten our priorities. And that gives me hope. When I launched Cooking Subversive last year, I mentioned that I saw cooking as a gateway to slowing down.  But it works both ways: with the pandemic, slowing down became a gateway to cooking.  But with many restaurants almost back on their feet, and those of us employed returning to work, cooking may fall to the wayside despite our best resolve.  So we need motivation.  And this is why I wrote the:Cooking Subversive ManifestoI Cook to Reclaim my HealthI Cook to Reclaim the Planet’s HealthI Cook to be with Family and FriendsI Cook to Create (which gives me Pride) I Cook to save MoneyI Cook because…well dang it, I like to Eat!The Cooking Subversive Manifesto (CSM) is a proclamation of why I cook.  It is a declaration of how cooking is not just a means to eating, (though that’s a pretty good incentive by itself), but fundamental to reclaiming rights to health and happiness for ourselves, the community and Mother Earth.So in the next few articles, we’ll explore the tenets of CSM in the Why Cook? series:  Six reasons to be a lifestyle cook.  You might think these are self-evident.  After all, who will debate that home cooking is good for our health?  Though I will argue that what and how you cook are important determinants, in general we agree that home cooking is healthier than commercial alternatives. Would anyone doubt that home cooking brings family and friends together or contest that cooking something delicious and beautiful is a point of pride?  The ubiquitous food photos on our social media feeds are proof enough.  Yet, most of us have not been swayed to take the time to cook until the pandemic forced some of us to. In a 2011 report by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) that measured time spent on home cooking and food preparation across 28 countries:The United States is the only country where both the participation rate and mean time for cooking are at the bottom of the ranking. In other words, the American population attaches on average little importance to cooking relative to the other surveyed countries. The United States is also one of the countries where relatively little time is spent eating as a primary activity and where obesity rates are amongst the highest in the OECD.So it begs the question, why haven’t these reasons been enough for us to take cooking seriously?  And that is what we will unpack.  Anyone can learn to cook. But becoming a lifestyle cook requires a change in mindset.  This is only possible when we can understand the confluence of forces, whether accidental or deliberate, that made us think time spent cooking wasn’t worthwhile; that if we could afford to hire someone else to do it for us, whether it’s dining out, buying pre-cooked meals, or a private chef, then we should do so. We’ve outsourced cooking and missed out on all the benefits. Let’s change that storyline.Coming up next: I Cook To Reclaim My Health Get full access to Cooking Subversive at cookingsubversive.substack.com/subscribe

Chris and Edgardo cover a lot of ground during this episode. Here are the references for a sample of the issues they discussed: Edgardo's new website that includes the electricity profiles of 24 OECD countries and whether, using which tech and at what price they have lowered emissions over the last 60 years is at (https://edecarb.org/) Edgardo noted the increasing recognition by many expert economists that "restructured" energy-only generation markets probably cannot facilitate the massive, long-term investment necessary for electrification, especially with the entry of (subsidized) renewables, is summarized here: (https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1389298276827021319.html) Chris and Edgardo discussed the most recent global electricity investment data from the IEA, including that for 2020's global $800 billion investment (including $300 billion of transmission and distribution), renewables made up 45% and nuclear only 5%. Nevertheless, the global total is less than half estimated ($2.3 trillion) amount for net zero by 2050 (https://www.iea.org/reports/world-energy-investment-2021) Nevertheless, Edgardo's preliminary statistical analysis suggests that renewables entry is associated with electricity price increases. One example is Germany's residential renewables surcharge, which totaled 25.6 billion in 2018 (https://www.iea.org/reports/germany-2020), which households appear to support, while in Ontario voters revolted, booting out the political party that introduced the GEA, with the incoming Government revoked the legislation and started subsidizing electricity prices, including $3.1 billion/year just for renewables https://www.ontario.ca/page/expenditure-estimates-ministry-energy-northern-development-and-mines-2021-22#section-6 Speaking of investment, Edgardo and Chris noted that Bruce had just announce the over-subscription of what is billed as the world's first “Green” nuclear bond for CAD$500 million. The “Second Party Opinion” (SPO) was provided by Cicero, which out of their three shades of green, gave it a “medium green” rather than a “dark green” set aside for wind and solar and the like, because of residual risks on proliferation, waste and radiation accidents: https://www.brucepower.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/Second-Opinion-Bruce-Power-16July2021final.pdf Sticking to investment, Edgardo noted that in his most recent blog looking at the cost-benefit of refurbishing Pickering Nuclear Generation Station (PNGS) versus going forward with the IESO replacement scenario (https://www.ieso.ca/en/Learn/Ontario-Supply-Mix/Natural-Gas-Phase-Out-Study), the refurbishment scenario is a better financial and cost abatement cost option (https://edecarb.org/analysis/ontario-ix)

The recent agreement on a global minimum tax, and other changes to tax rules around the world, have called into question the future of tax competition. Each year, The Tax Foundation puts out their International Tax Competitiveness Index. The Index seeks to measure the extent to which a countries' tax system adheres to important aspects of tax policy. Among so many changes and the global minimum agreement, is the annual index still relevant today?  International tax policy is heating up in the wake of the OECD's global minimum tax agreement. Listen to Kelly and Daniel Bunn tease out the details of tax competitiveness and the global tax agreement in plain English.On today's episode of the Taxgirl podcast, Kelly is joined by Daniel Bunn to discuss the relevance and nuance of the International Tax Competitiveness Index. Daniel is the VP of Global Projects at The Tax Foundation, where he researches international tax issues with a focus on tax policy in Europe. Prior to joining The Tax Foundation, he worked in the US Senate at the Joint Economic Committee as part of Senator Mike Lee's social capital project. He was also on the policy staff for both Senator Lee and Senator Tim Scott. During his time with the Senate, Daniel developed legislative initiatives on tax, trade, regulatory, and budget policy. Listen to Kelly and Daniel talk about the OECD and the Tax Competitiveness Index:Daniel recently penned an article (linked below) about whether or not the Index and “competitiveness” models will matter in years to come as the OECD deal moves forward. What is a quick synopsis on today's status on the OECD deal? How does a tax rate factor into tax competition? Daniel explains the nuances surrounding tax rates, and how The Tax Foundation generally considers them as a means to fund various public programs, which can affect tax competitiveness in many different ways.  One word that comes up a lot in discussions of tax policy is “distortion.” Daniel explains what distortions are in the realm of tax policy, and how they factor in to the big picture of the global tax landscape. When talking about the global tax agreement, Daniel says a lot of the implementation over the next few years will come down to behavior changes on both the company side and the government side.  A big sticking point during international discussions pertaining to the OECD was the digital services tax, and how different countries and governments will shift as a result of doing away with the digital services tax long term. How does Daniel anticipate governments may react as a result? One of the interesting premises of the deal is that everyone has to cooperate in order for it to work as intended. So far, a majority of countries (more than 130) have signed on in agreement, but not yet all of them. Is Daniel concerned by lingering resistance down the road? Is there any fear that all the agreements carefully laid today could be undone by future elections? Daniel unpacks the roles that diplomacy and politics play in the OECD as well as in compiling the Tax Competitiveness Index. For someone who's never seen the annual index before, Kelly says she would expect people to assume the larger global powerhouses to be at the top of the tax competitiveness rankings. However, this is certainly not always the case. Daniel explains why this happens and how some of the smaller countries get placed toward the top of the list. In general, it seems the index rewards simplicity in tax policy in favor of high complexity, which is likely why the US is ranked lower than many others. What are Daniel's thoughts on the US's ranking and what are the factors that contributed to its place in the index? How does remote work tie into tax competitiveness? In Daniel's tax writing he discusses how some of the smaller high-ranking countries, like Estonia and Latvia, are trying to “woo” remote workers with their tax policies.  Kelly says one of her favorite pieces of the
