Excellent article on the sort of issue we METARites might perhaps profitably focus on, that is, What the Heck will be the International Business Environment and Regulations worldwide in the coming decade?

Hmmmm? Smart investors, i would expect, want to know.

Judgement is about to be handed down by the EU high General Court, amidst the most complex possible political, lobbying, and both well thought out AND idiotic knee jerk reactions regarding

Apple’s Tax Avoidance Maneuvers in Ireland with implications for far more than Ireland’s GDP and Apple’s bottom line.

It's a case that Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook has lambasted as “total political crap.”

And on Wednesday, we'll find out whether he's right, when the EU General Court will rule on the legality of European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager's order that Ireland should recover €13 billion in unpaid taxes (plus interest) from the iPhone maker.

And I would love comments both on this particular peculiar case as well as all manner of speculations on what comes next now that neo-liberal orthodoxy is rotting away with no new orthodoxies hailed and blessed as of yet.
