FATCA – America’s Tax Rort is Exposed

The FATCA, or the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, is a one-sided law that forces other countries to enforce US tax laws. If they fail to do so, they’re effectively locked out of US markets and the US dollar—the world’s reserve currency (at least for now). FATCA imposes a 30% withholding tax on interest, dividends, rents, and similar payments leaving the US. The only way to avoid the tax is for foreign financial institutions (FFIs) to act as unpaid IRS informants. Withholding occurred some years ago,…

Argentine President Javier Milei gets himself on Time’s front cover

Argentina: What is happening in the land of the chainsaw? –

With the roar of a chainsaw, he has accomplished what many deemed impossible: Argentina’s first budget surplus in 16 years. Gone are the days of money-printing schemes to cover debts and bloated public subsidies for fuel and transportation. In a bold move, the new president has slashed thousands of state jobs (25,000 plus to date), frozen public construction projects, and bravely devalued the country’s currency.
