Call me stupid if you like but if multinationals with distribution depots have to pay tax in the the country where the depots are located, all they have to do is move the depot off shore to a low tax country, sign favourable contracts with a delivery company and raise prices to cover the transport costs. Finally shut down your depots and hey presto you pay your taxes to another country. Tax should be paid in the country where the profit was generated not from where it was sent.
I posted a link to http://oecdinsights.org/2014/05/12/two-hundred-girls-for-sale-millions-already-sold/ on an Internet forum.
One person has responded that his anti-virus, Comodo, has warned him about viruses and malware on that page. Nobody else has reported a problem, but thought you should know.
Good article, BTW.
Re your enjoyable life quality quiz, allow me to observe on a serious but hopeful note, that a lot of the questions about satisfaction in life involve the culture of faith ie the values derived from what people believe in. The current economic doldrums and the apparently inadequate general responses beg the question of the object of faith. Obviously believing in money itself is an issue which runs through culture and is itself at issue!
I just don’t understand how the global common good doesn’t make it clear to OECD members and staff, including Mr William White of EDRC and WP1 that hunger can and must be ended healthily throughout the planet in the mediun term, and that innovation implies wealth can be created and be distributed simultaneously for the first time in history through digital economics in the short term.

(Actually, I’ll be in Paris for a week FROM 11-17th Jan 2016? Would anybody like to “debate” these “fundamental” questions? If so, please let me know!)
browsing through Internet, I have found your initiative – congratulations!
but do you know where the term Jobs for Tomorrow was first used? in a 1976 research report to the European Commission in Brussels, which defined a circular economy.
as lead author of the 1976 report, I take it as a big compliment that the term has now become a commonly used term in the sense we used it 40 years ago.
