The Oil Drum | Drumbeat: July 19, 2010
Although the peak for coal is not expected for some time, the energy required to mine and transport coal is increasing. Over time high quality black coal will run short and dirtier brown coal will be substituted. This will carry an energy penalty as brown coal is less energy-dense and takes more energy to avoid sulphur dioxide emissions. Peak gas is expected before peak coal. The energy inputs to North Sea oil and gas have been increasing over the years as more advanced oil extraction techniques have been applied. Another major future source of gas in the UK in liquefied natural gas which is chilled, compressed and imported by ... market research, surveys and trends
(Tax) Cat and (Corporate) Mouse « Task Force on Financial ...
Creative corporate tax strategy is nothing new. As Congress passes laws and the tax code changes, so does the strategy of how firms choose to declare their revenues and losses and financial flows overall. Many times, in efforts to avoid intended taxes on their profits, corporations will create and use a foreign-based shell company in a tax haven or secrecy jurisdiction. Doing this allows the company to siphon funds away from the eyes of the U.S. government to a company that it fully or partially owns, in a destination like the Cayman Islands, and then later to filter the funds back in, or repatriate them, to the United States ... market research, surveys and trends


Tax Justice Network: Dutch multinationals hardly pay any tax
It quoted Bill Dodwell of Deloitte, who said this "shows the giant contribution of small companies. It is probably because many are less international and so have different planning opportunities.” Quite: this ability of big multinationals to hop offshore to cut their tax bills, penalising the smaller firms, is one of TJN's core concerns. More recently, TJN's Richard Murphy released a report for the UK Trades Union Congress (TUC) showing how the public purse loses £13 billion a year through tax avoidance by the wealthy and £12 billion a year through tax avoidance by corporations. Well now a similar story has ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Pressure to develop mounting in Goochland
leaders are attempting to lay out a new vision for the county with a fresh focus on economic development, but to succeed, they'll need the cooperation of influential landowners. This month, county leaders set about establishing strategic priorities for the cash-strapped bedroom community still haunted by past mismanagement issues that have led to an overhaul of county government. While the preliminary conversation offered few specific answers, one area of consensus was that the key to the future prosperity lies to the east -- in the Tuckahoe Creek Service District. The 7,800-acre water and sewer district was funded with $63 ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

The progress report provides an update on work to eliminate or discourage practices that undermine OECD countries' ability to enforce ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
