Tax reforms in EU Member States 2015

Taxes can do more than just fund public services; they can also support growth, employment, investment, economic competitiveness and social fairness. We are encouraging smarter taxation across the EU:!uR47tc

Sadly with the Euro currency and no centralised TAX system those countries are in one big poker game as QE does not help those that need it as any helps them all and with that makes those like Greece, worse off.   Now if Germany paid more TAX and with that fed into the poor Euro currency countries then it would balance out.  They do not and that sadly is why the Euro currency is so badly flawed that it is causing problems that need not happen and exaggerating others.

So when the Euro and QE does not work then what hope have you on any taxes :(

Today is #WorldTeachersDay. Did you know that over 52,500 teachers have been forced to leave their positions due to conflict in Syria?

One consequence of the Syrian conflict is a staggering #education crisis including 2.7 million children out of school and a loss of school infrastructure estimated to be worth nearly $700 million.

Last week we signed an agreement with UNICEF – worth €62 million – to scale up our joint response in providing boys and girls with access to education in protective and empowering environments in #Syria, #Lebanon and #Turkey:!bC94rT

George Bush his War on Terror and Bashar Al Assad his reign of chaos destablised the Middle East, that's the reason why we are diverting money to the refugee crisis.

Today, October 3rd, marks the 25th anniversary of Germany's reunification 

"The images of German reunification are not just nice pictures for history books, they are true symbols of our European identity. They show what people and politics can achieve if they overcome national walls, fences and barriers. 

Twenty-five years ago, we overcame what seemed insurmountable and united Germany as well as Europe. Today, this allows us to travel without borders and – in many countries – even pay with the same money. The images of reunification remain powerful because they remind us what we can accomplish if we think and act beyond the borders on maps and in minds, for a Europe of peace and freedom, of fairness and prosperity", Jean-Claude Juncker said.!WJ46vr

Très bien dit. Mais il faut aussi avoir les yeux grands ouverts sur la montée des néo-nazis, de populisme et d la gauche très radicale. En fait, on pourrait presque les mettre tous dans le même panier.

50% of Europeans believe discrimination based on religion is widespread. And among the religious groups, Muslims suffer from the lowest levels of social acceptance. Hate speech has no place in our society, whether physically or online.

Our collective responsibility to live together in tolerance and respect is particularly important at a time when we have a moral obligation to give refuge to people of various religions and cultures who arrive on our shores.

On 1st and 2nd of October we are hosting the first Annual Colloquium on Fundamental Rights with a clear key topic: how to fight antisemitism and anti-Muslim hatred in Europe.!hd94Ch

If you stopped demanding the European countries to accept millions of parasites, aka male "refugees" in military age, it would already be easier for Sylvia to get funding, because billions wouldn't be wasted on human refuse.

EU-Turkey: Draft Action Plan on support of refugees and migration management

The Draft Action Plan seeks to address the current #refugeecrisis in two ways: by supporting the #refugees and their host communities in #Turkey (Part I) and by strengthening cooperation to prevent irregular #migration flows to the #EU (Part II).

After yesterday's agreement in principle, the details of the Draft Action Plan now need to be agreed between the two sides.

The Capital Markets Union may sound a bit abstract but it is actually very practical – it's about helping small business owners access funding from sources other than banks. We have launched an Action Plan to create the right conditions for more funding to flow from Europe's savers to Europe's businesses.!pP94qd

+Mario Occhini ahahah temo che a 13 anni nessuno possa essere "in affari con i cinesi". Comunque, ovviamente ci sono molti marchi italiani falsificati, ma non vuol dire che siano sempre i cinesi a farlo (anche se lo sono per la maggior parte) e che lo facciano solo loro in quanto sono cinesi. E comunque si parla di accordi fra governi, non fra singoli commercianti (anche in Italia ce ne sono tantissimi che truffano, anche più dei cinesi), è assurdo dire"chissà se possiamo fidarci"...

The European Commission (EC) is the 'engine room' of the EU. It is one of 3 main EU institutions; the other two are the European Parliament (EP) and the Council (of the European Union).

The Commission prepares legislation for adoption by the Council (representing the member countries) and the Parliament (representing the citizens).

It administers the budget and the policy programmes (Agriculture, Fisheries, Research etc.) in cooperation with authorities in the member countries. The EC also services the 27 EU Commissioners.
