Talks in Davos raise hope of agreement to find multilateral solution to taxing digital firms

France is poised to announce on Wednesday that it is dropping its go-it-alone plan to tax big US tech companies in exchange for Washington’s agreement to press ahead with attempts to find a multilateral solution.

Hopes were rising in Davos on Tuesday night of an agreement after several days of intense talks involving the French finance minister, Bruno Le Maire, the US treasury secretary, Steve Mnuchin, and Ángel Gurria, the head of the rich-country thinktank the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development.

Scaling up and down


There’s a worn-out analogy in software development that you cannot build
a skyscraper the same way you build a dog house. The idea is that
techniques that will work on a small scale will not work on a larger
scale. You need more formality to build large software systems.

The analogy is always applied in one direction: up. It’s always an
exhortation to use techniques appropriate for larger projects.

But the analogy works in the other direction as well: it’s inappropriate
to build a dog house the same way you’d build a skyscraper. It would be
possible to build a dog house the way you’d build a skyscraper, but it
would be very expensive. Amateur carpentry methods don’t scale up, but
professional construction methods don’t scale down economically.

In fight against climate crisis, operators will be compensated for early switch-offs

Germany will pay its utility companies billions of euros to speed up the shutdown of their coal-fired power plants as part of the country’s efforts to fight climate crisis, the government has said.

The agreement reached between federal ministers and representatives of four coalmining states removes a key hurdle in Germany’s plan to curb greenhouse gas emissions over the coming decades.

UK also must maintain higher labour and environmental standards, EU tells diplomats

The EU will tell the UK that it must maintain higher labour and environmental standards than some of its own member states and that it will put the “socioeconomic” interests of its fishing communities at the centre of its post-Brexit negotiating strategy, diplomats heard on Tuesday.

Diplomats briefed by the European commission on Tuesday were informed that the UK would need to commit to staying beyond the common basic minimum of standards applied to EU member states.

Il Business cerca fonti di reddito ovunque. Snatura ogni cosa, rendono commerciali cose private che sono belle solo nell'initimità e non sugli scaffali di un negozio. Quanto sa essere meschino chi fa business, chi lotta ardentemente per avere altro denaro. Si piegano a qualsiasi cosa pur di ottenerlo, e questo li rende le persone più ripugnanti che possano esistere, possono avere tanto denaro ma la dignità non si compra.

ECJ ruling on firm’s French operations marks a victory in fight to avoid more regulation

Airbnb has won a victory in its fight to avoid more regulation by city authorities after the European court of justice ruled that it acted as an “information society service” rather than a real estate agency.

The EU court said the company did not require an estate agent’s licence to operate in France as it was mainly providing a tool for presenting and finding accommodation for rent rather than acting as a broker.
