Un año después de los Paradise Papers, la falta de progresos es preocupante

Un año después de los Paradise Papers, el mundo no ha progresado lo suficiente como para abordar el grave problema de la ocultación de la riqueza en los paraísos fiscales. Se estima que el 10% del PIB mundial está oculto en paraísos fiscales, y que la desigualdad aumenta tanto en los países desarrollados como en los países en desarrollo, por lo que la falta de progresos es preocupante, según Comisión Independiente para la Reforma de la Tributación Corporativa Internacional (ICRICT).

US firms book more profits in Ireland than in China, Japan, Germany, France & Mexico combined

ICRICT commissioner Gabriel Zucman and his colleague Thomas Wright just published a paper about the evolution of the taxes paid by U.S. multinationals on their foreign profits since 1966. The effective foreign tax rate has fallen by half since the late 1990s. Almost half of this decline owes to the rise of profit shifting to tax havens. Ireland is the top destination.
