America's economyOver the cliff?Barack Obama must do more than avoid an economic abyss. He has a chance to fix America’s finances
Dec 15th 2012 | from the print edition





BEN BERNANKE, the chairman of the Federal Reserve, is not known for his turns of phrase. But “fiscal cliff”—the term he coined to describe the tax increases and spending cuts that will hit America’s economy at the start of 2013 unless politicians agree to avert them—has inspired songs (“The fiscal cliff is a danger zone/It’s where grown men go when budgets are blown,” croons Merle Hazard, a satirical singer) and television comedy (Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show” calls it “Cliffpocalypsemageddonacaust”).
There have also been more serious consequences. The shadow of the fiscal cliff has depressed corporate investment. American consumer confidence has started to wobble. Growth is slowing, perhaps to as little as 1% in the fourth quarter. Policymakers around the world are fretting: Australia’s central bank has just cut rates, citing the cliff as a worry.

These worries are understandable but overblown (see article). In the short term the risk of economic catastrophe is minimal. The real threat—and the real opportunity for Barack Obama—lies in the medium and long term.
The long and the short of it
If lawmakers do nothing, America faces fiscal tightening in 2013 worth up to 5% of GDP. That is a Greek-scale squeeze. It would not take many months for it to push the country into recession. A complete stand-off between Mr Obama and Congress would lead to disaster even sooner, for unless America’s lawmakers vote to increase the “debt ceiling” (the maximum amount of debt that the Treasury can issue) by around March, the federal government will be unable to pay its bills—including, potentially, its bondholders. The damage from a self-induced default would dwarf even that from the fiscal cliff.

Nike Presses for 40-Year Tax Deal in Oregon


Un commentaire :



How is this legal? This is pure crony capitalism. 

I hate taxes, especially corporate taxes that create double taxation... but how does this make any sense? A tax should either apply to everyone or no one.




L'article :




By SHELLY BANJO
Oregon's governor has called the state's legislature into a special session Friday to appease one very powerful corporate citizen: Nike Inc.
The world's biggest sneaker maker is expanding its operations in the U.S. and has threatened to move if Oregon cannot guarantee its corporate tax structure will remain the same.
Gov. John Kitzhaber is asking lawmakers to grant him the authority to ensure that the state's method of determining corporate taxes won't change for companies, like Nike, that fit very specific criteria: Will invest $150 million in the state over five years and create 500 jobs.
Nike—the second-biggest company in Oregon by employees and revenue—is contemplating an expansion of its Beaverton, Ore., headquarters that would exceed those thresholds. Nike said it first wants assurance its state tax burden isn't going to increase. Under the proposed law, it could get such a promise for up to 40 years.
Oregon is the latest of a string of states to dole out billions in tax incentives that elected officials say create jobs and investment. State leaders say it isn't a tax break.
"We don't have the magnitude of resources available to a state like New York or California with which to woo companies," Mr. Kitzhaber said at a legislative hearing Thursday.
"Nike is a global company with a long history in Oregon," Nike's finance chief Don Blair said. "We support this proposed legislation as a way to help us continue to grow in Oregon." Nike was started out of the University in Oregon in 1964.
The footwear giant already enjoys a different tax structure than many other multi-state businesses. Under Oregon's "single sales factor" rule, which was fully adopted in 2005, companies like Nike pay state taxes solely on the fraction of sales they incur in Oregon.
Total sales, the number of employees, or property aren't factored into corporate taxes in Oregon, the way they are in the majority of other states.
Opponents of the measure question why Nike is asking for a guarantee now, since Oregon isn't weighing changesany to the corporate tax structure.
"Nike put an economic gun to the governor's head and said you either guarantee the law won't change or we'll go elsewhere," said Chuck Sheketoff, executive director of the Oregon Center for Public Policy. "As it is Nike is paying less than 90% of its fair-share in taxes."
Mr. Kitzhaber said Nike approached him about a month ago to detail plans to expand operations in Oregon and ask the state for certainty on corporate taxes.
Nike said it was entertaining offers from other states courting the company with incentives, according to Mr. Kitzhaber. He declined to name the other states.
"Nike didn't threaten to leave but said if you wanted to act right away we will commit to keeping the new expansion in Oregon," he said.

 Lawrence Summers Fixing unjust US tax system

How to fix costly and unjust US tax system
By Lawrence Summers


Too many provisions favour a very small minority of fortunate taxpayers
Sooner or later the American tax code will be reformed. Probably sooner. Raising revenue will be the main motivation, but at a time of sharply increasing economic polarisation issues of fairness will be prominent too. There are also legitimate concerns about the complexity of current tax rules and their adverse effects on the economy.
