A History of American Corporate Taxation Who Wins and Who Loses?

America's corporate income tax is one of the most poorly understood aspects of the nation's tax system.  With the constant rumblings emanating from Washington about a revamping of the corporate tax rate, I thought that it was a good time for a background look at the history of the current system.   While stumbling around the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis economic data website (also known as FRED), I found this rather interesting graph showing the ratio between federal tax receipts on corporate income and corporate after tax profits:   Back in 1951, the aforementioned ratio of corporate income tax receipts to corporate after tax profits peaked at 95.2 percent.  This dropped steadily, hitting a six decade low of 16.7 percent in 2009.  For 2011, the ratio stood at 19.97 percent, the second...

While speaking to the Malaysian media before departing for Kuala Lumpur this Friday morning after his two-day visit in Ankara, the Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak informed that the feedback from the Turkish Business Community had been encouraging. "I see that they are interested in exploring or looking at opportunities brought about by the FTA. I believe the FTA can greatly assist us in fields that we have the edge in through reduction or abolishment of import duties."

Abbott hesitates to comment on asylum seekers’ shipwreck

The asylum seekers boat that sank off Indonesia was allegedly abandoned by its captain five days before it ran out of fuel and hit strong waves. According to the survivors, the boat was lost in the sea for days as they had no sense of direction and kept floating without having enough fuel. The boat was on its way to Australia, where the government had already decided to send all asylum seekers back to Jakarta. The accident killed at least 22 out of 120 asylum seekers whereas 70 are feared missing. The fatalities include a large number of women and children. Their remains were found on a beach in a local estuary, while 25 people were found alive. Indonesia lacks the resources and skills to search in big sea, especially at... Read more

Canada to Send 500 Observers to Monitor Ukraine Election

Canada has vowed to send up to 500 observers to Ukraine to help monitor the fairness of upcoming presidential election in the country. The May 24, 2014, election have a special significance since Russia is persistently trying to destabilize Ukraine after singly annexing its Black Sea peninsula this spring. Former president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, was overthrown by a popular uprising in March and since have fled to Russia. Yanukovych received sheer criticism for drawing from a deal to have closer ties with the European Union, instead he accepted a major bailout package from Russia. Since the decision, Russia has seized Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula and is now backing pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine to push for independence. While announcing the initiative, Prime Minister Stephen Harper stated that “Canada will continue to... Read more

Ukraine Falling to Economic Warfare and Its Own Missteps

Ukraine Falling to Economic Warfare and Its Own Missteps

As protests in Ukraine's eastern region turned violent on Sunday leading to the death of a Ukrainian security officer in a shootout with pro-Russian militia, Kiev threatens military action while Moscow flexes its geo-economic warfare muscles. Pro-Russian militia groups have seized government buildings and police headquarters in Ukraine's eastern city of Donetsk and Slovyanks--where the shoot-out took place--and despite a Monday morning ultimatum by the Ukrainian government, these groups have shown no sign of giving in. There has been no movement by the Ukrainian military to make good on its ultimatum; indeed, the messages have been unclear and contradictory. Acting president Oleksander Turchinov has dangled the idea of a referendum that would seek to address the demands of the region's Russian-speaking population for more autonomy. In the same breath, Turchinov on Sunday promised... Read more

Why Iran Should Appoint a New Ambassador to the UN?

Middle East, Tuesday, April 22nd 2014

Why Iran Should Appoint a New Ambassador to the UN?

Iran’s decision to resist replacing Hamid Aboutalebi, as the Islamic Republic’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York, is only increasing frustrations both in Tehran and Washington. Widely considered a moderate diplomat, Aboutalebi, Iran’s former ambassador to Belgium, Australia, and the European Union is closely aligned with the politics of President Hassan Rouhani himself. The nominated ambassador was meant to serve as Rouhani’s ears and eyes in the United States, part of a wider effort on behalf of the Iranian government to defrost the icy relationship between the two countries, following decades of hostility and distrust. Despite being a seasoned diplomat, Aboutalebi’s alleged involvement in the 1970′s siege of the US embassy in Tehran makes the nomination ”not viable,” in the words of US government officials, who have denied Aboutalebi the visa necessary for...

Exploring for Oil in Nicaragua: Friends in High Places

On 17 July, Nicaragua announced that US-based Noble Energy would invest $30 million in drilling two offshore wells in the Caribbean—launching Nicaragua's first-ever oil exploration. The wells will be drilled in the Tyra and Isabel blocks, which have undergone nearly 5,000 kilometers of seismic surveying since 2011. But Nicaragua's first exploration will not go off without a hitch—namely, the revival of a nasty territorial dispute with Colombia, and another with Costa Rica. In all Nicaragua is planning to offer up nearly 68,500 square kilometers of offshore Caribbean territory to explorers, dividing the area up into over 150 blocks. This brings us to Noble Energy, one of our favorites over the past couple of years, but a company whose exploration bravado could land it in hot water—so we keep a close eye on... Read more

Obama said in this address, “The common thread of humanity that connects us all – not just Christians and Jews, but Muslims and Hindus and Sikhs – is our shared commitment to love our neighbors as we love ourselves”.

A study in the art of fast bowling and captaincy

He has shown the menacing influence fast bowling has on a cricket match. Irrespective of the conditions, a bowler of his ilk can threaten any batsman. Sadly, bowlers of his ilk are rare to come by, which is what makes Mitchell Johnson a greater hazard for the opposition. In practice sessions, it’s hard to replicate what Johnson does. Steyn and Morkel bowl fast too. But not as fast nor are they as life-threatening as Johnson. A bowling machine doesn’t provide the angle of his round arm action. Nor does it replicate the death stare from him, nor the moustache, nor the variety in deliveries.  Johnson still does spray the ball around. Though his control has improved a great deal, there are moments in which the old Johnson appears. For my mind,... Read more

Makeup-Bag Stalking: What We Schlep

Baltic Sea Mystery similar to Mystery of Everyman’s Way

There was a strange object discovered in the summer of 2011 by a group of Swedish treasure hunters from an ocean explorer team from Sweden.  Quite recently, this Ocean X Team conducted a second expedition to the circle-shaped object in the Baltic Sea and found something they have never experienced before. First they thought it was just stone or a rock cliff, but after further observations the object appeared more as a huge mushroom, rising 3-4 meters/10-13 feet from the seabed, with rounded sides and rugged edges. The object had an egg shaped hole leading into it from the top, as an opening. On top of the object they also found strange stone circle formations, almost looking like small fireplaces. The stones were covered in something resembling soot. “During my 20-year... Read more

AAP: let it be the voice of YOUth!

Presently, politics is the hottest topic in India as the election campaign goes on. It’s quite interesting to be able to realize what’s going on back home while living overseas in Canada. It fascinates me to watch how the political parties are crafting policies as well as designing their mottos and agendas according to trending topics or what plans and facilities people want to have in their day-to-day lifestyle. As a young reader, I was eagerly looking for the parties that were targeting young voters as well as their reasons and benefits for the younger group of population. There are many political parties in the game during this election season but I will highlight only three of them, which include the Indian National Congress Party (Congress), Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP)...

A Busy Girl's Guide To Smart Jet-Setting

{ads1}Ahhh, the "joys" of flying: being crammed into a teeny, lumpy seat that we paid way too much for; delays, with no chance of making our connection; screaming children throwing food and having tantrums — and stale almonds and rocket-fuel-flavored wine as our only comforts. There has to be a better way.  So, we turned to the savviest fliers we know for their advice. We polled 10 travel-industry insiders and perpetual globetrotters who make it their business to know which airlines have the best food, the least annoying music, the most lucrative mileage programs, the greenest fleets, seats that we can actually fall asleep in, and free (yes, free!) cocktails. Ahead, find our field guide to helping you jet-set without regret.  Scroll through to start zooming. If you want to play with miles or points, you have to have a credit card — unfortunately,...

Honey Singhs bonanza for Akshay in Shaukeen

Masala, Thursday, April 24th 2014

Dildaar and yaaron ka yaar is how Yo Yo Honey Singh likes to describe himself. He proved it with his action recently when he flew back from his current American tour for some very special recordings in the new Akshay Kumar film Shaukeen. Apparently Akshay who has collaborated repeatedly with Yo Yo in the past requested the rapper-performer for one special number in the Abhishek Sharma directed remake of Basu Chatterjee's Shaukeen which pairs Akshay with Lisa Haydon. Yo Yo insisted on doing three songs instead of one. Says Honey Singh, "Main aisa hi hoon. Anything for a friend. And there are two stars in Bollywood for whom I'd do anything. Akshay Paaji and Shah Rukh Bhai are like my brothers. When Akshay Paaji requested me to do one song, I told him,... Read more

Movie Review Dekh Tamasha Dekh

Reviews, Friday, April 18th 2014

At a time when our country is getting all geared up for the D-day [or should we say the E-day -- Election Day], the entertainment industry seems to be filled with dedications for the same. YOUNGISTAAN and BHOOTNATH RETURNS provided an interesting take on Indian politics and politicians. This week witnesses the release of DEKH TAMASHA DEKH, a socio-political satire, which revolves around the hunt for the religious identity of a man. Inspired by a true incident, DEKH TAMASHA DEKH starts off when an underprivileged man gets crushed under the weight of a politician's [Satish Kaushik] mega hoarding. The film gets into the mood immediately after the death of this man: Be it the judge trying to get into the details of the man's death, be it the lawyers of the... Read more

Music Review Kya Dilli Kya Lahore

Music :: Filmi, Wednesday, April 23rd 2014

Expectations: This is an offbeat film. However, Gulzar's presence does raise hopes for some powerful blend of mass appeal with class. Music: The lyrics are the mainstay of this offbeat album. Gulzar excels in the words, shedding his usual esoteric imagery for meaningful substance. And he also comes up with one whopping image that's perfect and poignant too - of the Indo-Pakistan border being like the line drawn on the ground for opposite teams in a kabaddi match! The theme of the score, cross-border harmony, continues throughout the four-track album like a distinct lyrical signature, though the first track, 'Kisse Lambe' (Sukhwinder Singh-Sandesh Shandilya-Rahat Fateh Ali Khan) is largely in incomprehensible Punjabi, which, we feel, could (in fact, should) have been avoided. Within the song, Sukhwinder Singh dominates effortlessly with his powerful throw.... Read more

The Real Wage Productivity Conundrum

The Real Wage Productivity Conundrum

In the early days of my career in the late 1970s and early 1980s, one thing that employees could count on was getting a raise that would include a cost of living allowance or COLA.  That way, we had some assurance that our compensation was keeping up with increases in what we were spending to live.  A paper by Lawrence Mishel and Kar-Fai Gee gives us some insight into the conundrum that faces workers in America.  While labour productivity increased...
