EU Robin Hood financial transactions tax is “within reach” if politicians can agree says diplomat

France, Germany and Italy are among the 10 countries backing the effort, while the UK has been stridently opposed to any tax on financial transactions.Read more: EU power grab with new global transactions taxPierre Moscovici, a former French finance minister, said: “A deal is within reach, if we only consider technical and legal issues, but what is needed is political will” according to Reuters.A financial transactions tax would complicate a future trade deal between the UK and the EU.The tax could create “obstacles in the way of a good UK/EU agreement” after Brexit, said Shanker Singham, a former trade lawyer who is now director of economic policy at the Legatum Institute. EU Robin Hood financial transactions tax is “within reach” if politicians can agree says diplomat A unilateral tax would also make the EU less competitive at a time when the US and UK are both declaring an intention to reduce regulation.“If they do it it would be an indication of politics trumping rational economics,” said Singham. “These are very negative signals to investors and financial services.”Meanwhile, the political will may be lacking. It is unclear, for instance, how likely Germany is to push hard for the tax, particularly before it enters a general election campaign.Read more: MEPs demand transactions tax on European financial sector“The problem in implementing this is the political will,” said Duncan McCann, a researcher at the left-of-centre New Economics Foundation. Thursday 26 January 2017 6:53 pm Jasper Jolly A financial transactions tax – also known as a Robin Hood tax – on trades is “within reach” according to the EU’s commissioner on tax, which could represent a barrier to the UK’s post-Brexit trade deal with the bloc.The original proposal was for a 0.1 per cent tax on trades in shares and bonds and 0.01 per cent on derivatives such as options and futures. The measure would be aimed to raise revenue and signal that financial services are sharing the cost of the global financial crisis. Despite possible distorting effects, backers of the tax point to big revenue-raising possibilities at the expense of financial services as well as limits on financial instability such as flash crashes.The Tobin tax was named after American economist and Nobel prize-winner James Tobin, whose aim was to stop short-term foreign exchange trading and thereby stabilise currencies.McCann said: “The key rationale for imposing a financial transactions tax is that you would curtail more harmful speculative trading.” However, the tax should not be seen as a “panacea”, he said, pointing to failed attempts to impose a similar levy in Sweden.“With these complex financial regulations the devil is in the detail,” he added.The tax was first proposed in September 2011 as a way of making the financial services sector contribute more to EU revenues as well as to limit “financial transactions which do not contribute to the efficiency of financial markets or of the real economy,” according to the European Commission’s website.A financial transactions tax was also mooted by candidates for the Democratic Presidential nomination, including Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, during the US election campaign. whatsapp Share whatsapp Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoUnify Health LabsRandy Jackson: This 3 Minute Routine Transformed My HealthUnify Health LabsUndoAtlantic MirrorA Kilimanjaro Discovery Has Proved This About The BibleAtlantic MirrorUndoWarped SpeedCan You Name More State Capitals Than A 5th Grader?

The UK today discussed the transition to net zero with G7 counterparts. Net zero front and centre in G7 meeting hosted by Sunak Tomorrow the Chancellor will call on the G20 to focus its efforts on taking collective action to tackle climate change. whatsapp In a statement the Treasury said: “Finance ministers and central bank governors discussed the key roles of their ministries and central banks in the transition to net zero, and how climate policies complement and amplify the role of the private sector in financing climate action.” Sunak told attendees they needed to step up their plans to achieve the G7’s goal of creating $100bn of climate finance, the Treasury added. This year’s talks are crucial, as countries will be required to update their “nationally determined contributions” for reducing greenhouse gas emissions for the first time since the Paris conference in 2015.

Horizons launches two new corporate bond ETFs

Both ETFs began trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange Wednesday with both Class E unit and Advisor Class units. The investment objectives of Horizons HYI are to provide its unitholders with high total return income monthly distributions. The fund invessts, directly or indirectly, primarily in high-yield debt securities of North American companies. It may also invest, directly or indirectly, in convertible debentures, preferred shares and mortgage-backed securities. The fund will seek to hedge its non-Canadian dollar currency exposure to the Canadian dollar at all times. The investment objective of Horizons HUF.U is to generate income that is consistent with prevailing U.S. short-term corporate bond yields while stabilizing the market value of the ETF from the effects of U.S. interest rate fluctuations. The fund invests primarily in a portfolio of U.S. corporate debt securities and will hedge the portfolio’s U.S. interest rate risk to generally maintain a portfolio duration of less than two years. It may also invest in U.S. government debt securities and debt securities of non-U.S. companies. The may also invest in debt securities directly, or through investments in securities of other investment funds, including exchange traded funds. The fund will use derivatives, including interest rate swaps, to deliver a floating rate of income. As Horizons HUF.U is denominated in U.S. dollars, it will generally seek to hedge its Canadian dollar currency exposure to the U.S. dollar. Horizons HUF.U is the second floating rate bond ETF launched by Horizons ETFs. The structure of HUF.U is very similar to that of the already existing Horizons Floating Rate Bond ETF, except that Horizons HUF.U will invest primarily in U.S. corporate bonds and distribute in U.S. dollars. To achieve the investment objectives of the ETFs, Natcan will use fundamental credit research to select companies that, based on their view on the company’s industry and growth prospects, are believed to offer attractive risk adjusted returns. “These two ETFs further enhance our partnership with Natcan’s fixed income team, which is one of the most capable bond management teams in Canada,” says. Howard Atkinson, CEO of Horizons ETFs, “Philosophically, our firm is of the belief that a low-cost actively-managed strategy can deliver better performance than a passive indexing strategy for certain asset classes, which include corporate bonds, high yield bonds and preferred securities,” Atkinson explains. “Natcan has done an excellent job in managing their existing ETF mandates and reinforcing our view that an active strategy can overcome many of the limitations found with index replication in these asset classes.” These two new ETFs will be the fifth and sixth income-focused mandates that Natcan sub-advises for Horizons ETFs. Natcan’s fixed income team are also the sub-advisors of the Horizons Corporate Bond ETF (TSX:HAB), the Horizons Floating Rate Bond ETF (TSX:HFR), the Horizons Tactical Bond ETF (TSX:HAF) and the Horizons Preferred Share ETF (TSX:HPR). Toronto-based Horizons Exchange Traded Funds Inc. Wednesday announced the launch of two new corporate debt based ETFs, the Horizons High Yield Bond ETF (HYI) and the Horizons U.S. Floating Rate Bond ETF (HUF.U). The portfolios of the ETFs will be actively managed by Montreal-based Natcan Investment Management Inc. Companies Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc.

Voter turnout, registrations continue to set records in Clark County

first_imgVoter turnout, registrations continue to set records in Clark CountyPosted by Chris BrownDate: Friday, October 23, 2020in: Newsshare 0 More than 36 percent of registered voters have already registered their voteCLARK COUNTY — Ballots continue to pour into ballot boxes across Clark County at a record-setting pace.By Friday morning, Clark County Elections workers had collected 111,325 ballots, including 37,289 on Tuesday alone; the highest non-election day total on record.A new ballot drop box at the C-TRAN bus depot in Hazel Dell. Photo by Mike SchultzA new ballot drop box at the C-TRAN bus depot in Hazel Dell. Photo by Mike SchultzFor comparison, the highest voter turnout for a presidential election in recent history was 85.31 percent during the 2008 election. During that year, 44,444 ballots had been returned within the first six days.This year, 34.65 percent of the county’s 321,268 registered voters have already turned in a ballot with 11 days remaining until the Nov. 3 general election.Another trend also continues to be a much larger percentage of people using the drop boxes around the county, and avoiding the mail.Typically, around 25 percent of ballots returned ahead of election day are recovered from a drop box. This year, that number currently sits at just over 60 percent, said Clark County Auditor Greg Kimsey.It’s worth noting that the number of drop boxes has increased sharply since the last presidential election. In 2016, there were just five boxes around the county. After recent additions, there are 22 locations for this election.All of that may be good news for the county’s budget, noted Kimsey. Since last year, the county has been funding postage paid envelopes to eliminate the need for a stamp, but they only pay if someone mails it. So every ballot returned through a drop box currently saves the county 55 cents, the cost of a first class stamp.That means the 66,271 ballots put in a drop box have saved the county, so far, a total of $36,449.As for which drop box locations are seeing the most traffic, downtown Vancouver has collected 14,214 ballots, with the Fisher’s Landing C-TRAN box a distant second at 7,625, followed by the Vancouver Mall C-TRAN box at 6,408. Another shocking statistic is the rate in growth for voter registrations in Clark County.Vote return numbers as of Fri., Oct. 23. Image courtesy Clark County Elections DivisionVote return numbers as of Fri., Oct. 23. Image courtesy Clark County Elections DivisionJust since the August primary election there have been nearly 17,486 new voter registrations for Clark County, and a total of nearly 34,000 new registrations since the beginning of the year.“Huge numbers,” said Kimsey on Friday. “I think we have a backlog of about 1,200 registrations that we need to process today.”Since 2008, there have been nearly 105,000 more people registered to vote in Clark County, including an increase of almost 50,000 since 2016, nearly doubling the rate of overall population growth in the county.Some of that may have to do with the state’s online voter registration system, and same-day registration that took effect in 2019, which allows people to register and vote on the same day up until 8 p.m. on election night.Monday is the final day people can register to vote online, Kimsey noted. After that, they need to come to the county elections office if they want to register and receive a ballot before the deadline on Nov. 3.Also, ballots should have been received by voters by Wed., Oct. 21. Thus far, the county has registered 736 ballots returned to them undeliverable. If you haven’t received your ballot, you’re asked to contact the county elections office at (564) 397-2345 to request a replacement.You can track the status of your ballot online at this link, and view daily ballot returns here.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Clark CountyElection 2020LatestVancouvershare 0 Previous : Ore.

Two CU-Boulder Professors Named Jefferson Science Fellows

first_img Published: Aug. 30, 2007 University of Colorado at Boulder professors Ross Corotis and Jerry Peterson have been named Jefferson Science Fellows and will spend the 2007-08 calendar year working full time at the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C.They are the first CU-Boulder faculty members to participate in the program, which was established in 2003 to engage the academic science, technology and engineering community in the shaping of U.S. foreign policy.The program is administered by the National Academies and supported through a partnership among universities, the Carnegie Corporation and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.”I am extremely pleased that two of our distinguished faculty members have been awarded these prestigious fellowships,” said Provost Phil DiStefano. “Professors Corotis and Peterson have a wealth of knowledge and experience in engineering and the sciences that will be extremely beneficial to the State Department in formulating and implementing U.S. foreign policy.”Corotis is the Denver Business Challenge Professor of Engineering and a recognized expert in structural mechanics in the department of civil, environmental, and architectural engineering. His primary research interests are in the application of probabilistic concepts to civil engineering problems, and recently he has focused on societal hazard risk perception, assessment and management. He joined the CU-Boulder faculty in 1994 as dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Science, and he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 2002.Peterson is a professor in the physics department and specializes in the area of nuclear physics. He is a member of the American Physical Society’s Committee on Homeland Security, Division of Nuclear Physics, and of the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center Division Review Committee. He was an administrator in the CU-Boulder Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research for six years, including posts as assistant vice chancellor, associate vice chancellor and interim vice chancellor. He joined the faculty at CU-Boulder in 1970 after teaching at Princeton and Yale universities.Corotis and Peterson are among eight faculty chosen for the program this year. They were selected based on their stature within the national and international scientific and engineering communities, as well as their ability to articulate science and technology issues to the general public, to understand scientific advancements outside their discipline area, and to effectively integrate this knowledge into policy discussions.They reported to the Office of the Science and Technology Adviser to the Secretary of State on Aug. 15. Their assignments, which have not been specifically outlined, may involve extended stays at foreign embassies or missions.Each will receive a stipend of $50,000 to offset the costs of temporarily living in the Washington, D.C., area. Their salaries will continue to be paid by CU-Boulder.Following their fellowship year, they will return to their academic careers but remain available to the State Department for short-term projects over a period of five years.
