Since its demise it has inspired more internet tribute sites than any videogames magazine in history, with the possible ...

Australia has escaped the technical definition of a recession – two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth – but as the Prime Minister said, we are not out of the woods yet 1 . The global picture is of synchronised global recession in all the major markets of Northern America, Europe and Japan. Governments have found themselves in the unusual position of owning large parcels of banks and auto makers. In Australia, the latest National Accounts show positive growth – albeit small – but amidst positive signs there is an outlook of lower business investment due to declining demand, worsening terms of trade, and rising unemployment. market research, surveys and trends

Thin capitalization for tax avoidance
The direct tax code is likely to include a new provision on thin capitalization to prevent companies from borrowing excessively with a view to reduce their tax liability. There are other reasons why companies go in for thin capitalization. The choice between equity and debt is not free.
