The companies involved in the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history are trying to prevent government investigations blaming them for the disaster from being used against them by the people and businesses who are suing them.
Billions of dollars are potentially at stake in a trial scheduled for February to determine whether rig owner Transocean can limit what it pays those making claims under maritime law and to assign percentages of fault to Transocean and other companies involved.The companies involved in the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history are trying to... more
Imagine making a boatload of money and paying little or no taxes. That’s what many of the country’s largest companies have been doing for the past few years, according to a new report looking at the taxes that corporate America pays or, in this case, doesn’t pay.
Citizens for Tax Justice examined 280 Fortune 500 companies and found 78 hadn’t paid taxes during at least one of the last three years, and 30 hadn’t paid a red cent in all three years. In fact, those companies with zero taxes made $160 billion in profits over that same period. That’s billion with a “b.” They include Pepco Holdings, General Electric, Verizon, Wells Fargo, PG&E and other giants of industry.
Of the companies that did pay, the tax bill was about 18 percent, half the official 35 percent. The study also finds that 66 percent of the companies with profits overseas paid more taxes to foreign governments than they did to Uncle Sam.
Several companies had so many excess tax breaks that they reported negative taxes, which means they actually got tax rebate checks from the federal government.
Yes, really. It’s a part of the tax shelters and loopholes in the current tax system that the study says rewards companies that know how to game the system, while the average working American pays his or her fair share and more.
So, if you’re wondering why large groups of frustrated Americans are “occupying” Wall Street and cities across the country complaining about corporate greed and social inequality, this report gives you the answer in spades.Imagine making a boatload of money and paying little or no taxes. That’s what... more
AS PROTESTS against financial power sweep the world this week, science may have confirmed the protesters' worst fears. An analysis of the relationships between 43,000 transnational corporations has identified a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the global economy.
The study's assumptions have attracted some criticism, but complex systems analysts contacted by New Scientist say it is a unique effort to untangle control in the global economy. Pushing the analysis further, they say, could help to identify ways of making global capitalism more stable.
The idea that a few bankers control a large chunk of the global economy might not seem like news to New York's Occupy Wall Street movement and protesters elsewhere (see photo). But the study, by a trio of complex systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, is the first to go beyond ideology to empirically identify such a network of power. It combines the mathematics long used to model natural systems with comprehensive corporate data to map ownership among the world's transnational corporations (TNCs).
"Reality is so complex, we must move away from dogma, whether it's conspiracy theories or free-market," says James Glattfelder. "Our analysis is reality-based."
Previous studies have found that a few TNCs own large chunks of the world's economy, but they included only a limited number of companies and omitted indirect ownerships, so could not say how this affected the global economy - whether it made it more or less stable, for instance.
The Zurich team can. From Orbis 2007, a database listing 37 million companies and investors worldwide, they pulled out all 43,060 TNCs and the share ownerships linking them. Then they constructed a model of which companies controlled others through shareholding networks, coupled with each company's operating revenues, to map the structure of economic power.
The work, to be published in PLoS One, revealed a core of 1318 companies with interlocking ownerships (see image). Each of the 1318 had ties to two or more other companies, and on average they were connected to 20. What's more, although they represented 20 per cent of global operating revenues, the 1318 appeared to collectively own through their shares the majority of the world's large blue chip and manufacturing firms - the "real" economy - representing a further 60 per cent of global revenues.
When the team further untangled the web of ownership, it found much of it tracked back to a "super-entity" of 147 even more tightly knit companies - all of their ownership was held by other members of the super-entity - that controlled 40 per cent of the total wealth in the network. "In effect, less than 1 per cent of the companies were able to control 40 per cent of the entire network," says Glattfelder. Most were financial institutions. The top 20 included Barclays Bank, JPMorgan Chase & Co, and The Goldman Sachs Group.
John Driffill of the University of London, a macroeconomics expert, says the value of the analysis is not just to see if a small number of people controls the global economy, but rather its insights into economic stability.
Concentration of power is not good or bad in itself, says the Zurich team, but the core's tight interconnections could be. As the world learned in 2008, such networks are unstable. "If one [company] suffers distress," says Glattfelder, "this propagates."
"It's disconcerting to see how connected things really are," agrees George Sugihara of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California, a complex systems expert who has advised Deutsche Bank.
Yaneer Bar-Yam, head of the New England Complex Systems Institute (NECSI), warns that the analysis assumes ownership equates to control, which is not always true. Most company shares are held by fund managers who may or may not control what the companies they part-own actually do. The impact of this on the system's behaviour, he says, requires more analysis.
Crucially, by identifying the architecture of global economic power, the analysis could help make it more stable. By finding the vulnerable aspects of the system, economists can suggest measures to prevent future collapses spreading through the entire economy. Glattfelder says we may need global anti-trust rules, which now exist only at national level, to limit over-connection among TNCs. Sugihara says the analysis suggests one possible solution: firms should be taxed for excess interconnectivity to discourage this risk.
One thing won't chime with some of the protesters' claims: the super-entity is unlikely to be the intentional result of a conspiracy to rule the world. "Such structures are common in nature," says Sugihara.
Newcomers to any network connect preferentially to highly connected members. TNCs buy shares in each other for business reasons, not for world domination. If connectedness clusters, so does wealth, says Dan Braha of NECSI: in similar models, money flows towards the most highly connected members. The Zurich study, says Sugihara, "is strong evidence that simple rules governing TNCs give rise spontaneously to highly connected groups". Or as Braha puts it: "The Occupy Wall Street claim that 1 per cent of people have most of the wealth reflects a logical phase of the self-organising economy."
So, the super-entity may not result from conspiracy. The real question, says the Zurich team, is whether it can exert concerted political power. Driffill feels 147 is too many to sustain collusion. Braha suspects they will compete in the market but act together on common interests. Resisting changes to the network structure may be one such common interest.

Earlier this year, Berkshire Hathaway Chairman Warren Buffett made headlines by
publicly decrying the stark inequity between his own effective federal tax rate (about
17 percent, by his estimate) and that of his secretary (about 30 percent). The resulting
media firestorm has drawn welcome attention to unfair tax breaks that allow the richest
Americans to avoid paying their fair share of the personal income tax. But these inequities are not limited to the personal tax.
Our corporate tax system is plagued by very similar problems, problems that allow many of America’s most profitable corporations to pay little or nothing in federal income taxes.
This study takes a hard look at the federal income taxes paid or not paid by 280 of
America’s largest and most profitable corporations in 2008, 2009 and 2010. The companies in our report are all from Fortune’s annual list of America’s 500 largest corporations, and all of them were profitable in each of the three years analyzed. Over the three years, the 280 companies in our survey reported total pretax U.S. profits of $1.4 trillion.

While you don’t need a spokesperson, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have “spokes-principles” — a core set of ideas or answers to the crises of the Wall-Street Empire that speak for you, that communicate who you are to a public that’s tuning in more and more every day.
Without that set of spokes-principles, the public may have sympathy for the protesters’ motives, but it will ultimately fear their objectives. And the organizers will have done the world a great disservice by earning a big public spotlight and failing to shine it on answers that the world urgently needs to know and start talking about if we’re going to have a fighting chance of saving our civilization.

Everyone works hard not to get cheated out of their fair share. In the past 30 years, due to gains in technology, productivity rose but salaries when adjusted for inflation decreased for the middle class. The extra wealth accumulated at the top 1%. They then use that wealth to influence politicians and get bailouts and all sorts of other favors. When wealth that is concentrated in the hands of a few is one of the main influences in politics then society is no longer a democracy it is a plutocracy. That is what the protest is about. We all work hard and we all want to be treated fairly and we want the rule of law to be restored such that it applies to everyone in society and that the wealthy are not exempt from their actions. Corporations are needed; unethical behavior and corruption aren't needed.Everyone works hard not to get cheated out of their fair share. In the past 30 years,... more
A mainstream media outlet has published an article called 'The Case for Piracy. The writer shows how copyright has been hijacked by corporations and that publishers are their own worst enemies. 'One of the main reasons we all have anti-piracy slogans embedded in our brains is because the music industry chose to try and protect its existing market and revenue streams at all costs and marginalise and vilify those who didn't want to conform to the harsh new rules being set.' There's a lot in the article that Slashdot readers can relate to, and it's interesting that so many replies seem to agree with the author.

There is something else that goes unrecognized. Few Americans are willing to acknowledge that Occupy Wall Street and the tea party movement are two manifestations of the same explosive American anger at the American government and the modern corporate system.
Both movements blame “the bankers” for what has happened. Both also blame “the politicians in Washington.” They just blame different politicians. The tea party people identify the enemy as liberals, Democrats, mainstream journalists, people who live in Washington, New York and Los Angeles, and are in one way or another in league with banking, international finance and cosmopolitan society.
The OWS people hate “the bankers” whom they identify with greed, financial manipulation (often crooked) and the oppression of the rest of their countrymen. They see their enemies as rightists: the tea party, fundamentalist Protestants, cultural conservatives, Republicans, warmongers, and self-righteous and xenophobic patriots. These days, a lot of them have saved some hate, or grief, for Barack Obama, who, they believe, has betrayed them.
Both sides are obsessed with the other and cannot recognize what they have in common, which is victimization by a finance- and corporate-dominated American business establishment in effective control of the United States government, whose elected officials now are themselves victims of a system of campaign contributions, upon which their careers depend. They have only themselves to blame—politicians of both parties, and their Supreme Court—having deliberately removed all regulation or limit from what is now a fundamentally corrupt electoral finance system.There is something else that goes unrecognized.

This article is in support of the Occupy Wall Street protesters. Pictures of these uncomfortable Americans withstanding the elements to support a worthy cause are heartwarming. Most Americans have only respect and admiration for their efforts and sacrifices. We must all fully support them.
Occupy Wall Street protesters have been interviewed and responded with different types of complaints against our government and U S Corporations. Although they each have a different response, they all know something is very wrong with our nation. They are all fighting the same enemy below that is destroying our nation - Corporate Persona Hood Case Law. These laws have given corporations the same rights as citizens. This article is intended to make the intrepid protesters' aware of their common enemy to offer a uniform issue.
Our founder's intent was to form a government to eliminate tyranny and the caste based society of Lords and peasants. Protesters are fully aware that Americans are more like peasants, pleading for a job at any rate of pay. The middle class is being systematically eradicated, creating either the rich or the poor. This is common knowledge and the protesters don't like slavery anymore than our brave founders. This is just the beginning and their intent is to eliminate the U S Constitution and all of our rights, which is getting in the way of their profits.
Admire the wise words of Thomas Jefferson below that predicted our nation could be reduced to tyranny by our own government. Corporate Persona Hood case law is a cancer to our nation that continues to grow. As you look below you will see his words come to life as case law decisions from 1819 thru 2010, have slowly perverted our nation into Tyranny.
"Experience has shown that even under the best forms [of government] those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny."

Ironically, and to a great surprise our founding Fathers would have never guessed, our Great Nation and the U S Constitution has been destroyed by the U S Supreme Court of the Judicial Branch and not by the Executive and Legislative Branch, although they are now very much contributing to this end. They achieved this by passing corporate persona hood case law granting corporations the same rights as a citizen. Our founding Fathers stated to preserve the Life Liberty and Property of WE THE PEOPLE and that is what they intended. They fiercely opposed the Tories [Multinational Corporations] because they were a danger to the rights of WE THE PEOPLE. Congressmen and Judges used to be Honorable, unbiased and fiercely guarded the Constitutional rights of the people. However, now that the courts granted corporations so much rights, it has put a split between the Judges where they are either biased for or against the RIGHTS of WE THE PEOPLE - which is in direct contradiction to the intentions of the U S Constitution and our founding Fathers - making this case law Un-Constitutional. It is sad that the court of last resort especially designed to guard the U S Constitution and all of the sacred rights it contains - is the very institution that destroyed our Great Nation.
Powerful Corporations now control our politicians at the federal, state and county level. The rights of the people are being ignored. The statistics below prove it.
One of the problems that alarm me the most is that about 1 of every 300 children born in the U.S. are born autistic. The CDC is investigating this matter now because nobody knows why. I believe it may have to do with chemicals and medication that are filtering down through our genes and chromosomes.
25% of hospitalizations in the U.S. are caused from adverse reactions from medications. The Tories have infiltrated the FDA and pharmaceutical company representatives sit at the same decision making table as the FDA when approving drugs. We have medications that make us see blue, go blind, kill others or ourselves or die of heart attacks.
Our government is allowing companies to kill us. An employee at A&M University came home to find his two beloved birds dead and bleeding. They were located near his kitchen. Turns out they died of cancer from Teflon pans made by Dupont. Dupont has known that this Teflon substance causes harmful odors. The EPA praises itself for phasing out Teflon pans by the year 2015?
The U S Congress eradicated the The Glass-Steagall Act which was enacted during the first Depression primarily due to corporate and government corruption which critically wounded our Nation. These entrusted men effectively destroyed our nation by repealing this Glass-Steagall Act. It led to the largest transfer of wealth in the history of mankind financially devastating our banking system and fleecing the pockets of every American citizen. They repealed this law due to heavy financial persuasion from the corporate giants of Wall Street. This was also caused by the U S Supreme Court passing corporate persona hood case law enabling Congressmen to guard the rights of these corrupt corporations to destroy the rights of We The People.
We have over 10% unemployment, largest national debt ever, immense national trade deficit and the list goes on how our Great Nation is being destroyed. This is all due to corporate persona hood case law. I can continue with many serious problems facing our Nation. Our government is becoming a puppet for American business and the needs and wants of the people are being ignored.
Your enemy is Corporate Persona Hood case law. Congress didn't alter the U S Constitution granting these rights to corporations – our “Honorable” Judges did. Every American should be protesting these laws around every courthouse in the nation. Abide by the law and never give up.
Historically courts respect the Preamble of the U S Constitution and their duty to preserve tranquility. All of the great changes made in our nation such as the civil rights movement were accomplished with protesting. Your voices are being heard and the courts will act thereon if you continue with your legal right to peaceful protests.This article is in support of the Occupy Wall Street protesters.

Guess What? Outsourced USA Jobs May Be Coming Back!
No, it's not because Corporhood America has become enlightened therefor feeling compassion instead of GREED.
Guess What? Outsourced USA Jobs May Be Coming Back!
Could it be the CORPORATISTS have developed a conscience?
Not on your life!
Will wonders ever cease? Never would I have believed that there is a chance of outsourced jobs returning to our American Shores without intervension from the Government . After all, the Corporatists’ are only after the bottom-line, they have proved this time and again with their off-shoring of so many jobs that once belonged to the American Work Force. They didn’t care about Americans losing their jobs and that it would most likely produce a mass slide into poverty. They didn’t care about the foreign workers who were forced to work for slave labor pittance. It was always about the bottom-line profits and making stockholders happy.
Now, it appears that the high OUT OF SIGHT cost to ship goods to faraway places is making the Fat Cats think again. Hey, it’s costing too much $$$ for SHIPPING AND HANDLING which is eating into our ACQUISITION of WEALTH and that, we all know, CAN’T BE TOLERATED! Hey we’ve got to do a 180-degree reversal and take the livelihood from the poor in foreign countries and bring it on back here to give these jobs back to the poor of this country. ACQUISITION OF WEALTH LEAK SOLVED.
Next time you grumble at the prospect of price increases on fuel and goods just remember IT’S BRINGING JOBS BACK TO AMERICA… What a way to run a country! Please read the article Made (Again) in the U.S.A. for some insight into a 180-degree reversal by the Corporate Personhood of America. thinkingblue

With annual sales of $6.5 billion from more than 100 disparate brands, Jarden Corp. of Rye, N.Y., is what used to be known as a conglomerate. It makes, among other things, canning jars, matches, skis, toasters, rope, tents, apparel, fishing gear, sponges, baseball bats and football helmets--many of them under formerly
distressed brands like Coleman, Rawlings and Sunbeam, which founder Martin Franklin and CEO James Lillie have bought and rehabbed.
It's also at the forefront of a trend, the rehab of American manufacturing. Wages in China, where many basic goods sold by companies like Jarden have been produced cheaply for decades, are rising rapidly.
Meanwhile, prices for ocean containers and marine fuel have been volatile, swinging 40% for containers and up to 150% for fuel in some periods. The result is a new cost equation that is returning some manufacturing to the U.S. This year Jarden will "insource" $100 million worth of goods (in wholesale value)--about 4 million items--to the Americas, mostly from Asia, half of that to the U.S. That includes
Worth carbon-fiber softball bats, now in full-swing production in Caledonia, Minn.; marine-antenna castings in Greenville, S.C.; Quickie mops and brooms that have swept into Lumberton, N.C.; and a new line of Rawlings footballs that will touch down in Springfield, Mo.
