40% of multinational corporate profits are shifted to tax havens each year. That's more than $600 billion. shows how much each country loses in tax revenue from such shifting

Here's a cracking website where can click on a country and see an estimate of profits shifted abroad & lost corporation tax revenues. << SPOILER ALERT >> For UK, it's a ginormous $76bn shifted and $15bn lost taxes |

The results consistently show that the sensitivity of reported profits to profit-shifting incentives is negatively related to the level of economic and institutional development. (5/6)

The paper proposes a novel approach to studying cross-border profit shifting, which has relatively low data requirements and is therefore particularly well-suited for the context of developing countries. (3/6)

We use a global dataset with information about 210,000 corporations in 142 countries to investigate whether tax avoidance by multinational firms is more prevalent in less-developed countries. (2/6)

🚨🥳Very excited to present my contribution to transformation maps on how taxation impacts the world. Taxes has the power to shrink inequality, foster development and halt the climate crisis - but tax systems are under pressure as they face an industry of tax avoidance.

Ekstra fun fact er så at stigningen i profits andel af den samlede indkomst er drevet af multinationale selskaber

1) Tror du har vendt dem forkert: det er Profits/GDP du gerne vil have - 12.2% i 1980 og 15.3% i dag. 2) Corp. Profits er en delmængde af kapitalindkomst - så lønandel i corporate sector og profits andel hænger meget tæt sammen (du skal bare justere for renter og depreciation)

Check out episode on our research on global profit shifting (). First time I have been asked for details in an interview on how we converted pdf'ed national accounts into a database! CC

We got that: tabel C6 (du skal selv lige dividere række 5 med 1). Du har ret i din hypotese lars - global profits andel af BNP er steget med 25%. (En anden måde at se dette på er ved den faldende lønandel i nationalindkomsten - et meget omtalt fænomen)
