Influence libertarienne Économie En Citations Philosophie

Julian Assange

Extrait d’une entrevue de Julian Assange, le responsable de Wikileaks, réalisé par le magazine Forbes:

« It’s not correct to put me in any one philosophical or economic camp, because I’ve learned from many. But one is American libertarianism, market libertarianism. So as far as markets are concerned I’m a libertarian, but I have enough expertise in politics and history to understand that a free market ends up as monopoly unless you force them to be free.* »

La fin de l’Union Européenne ? Économie En Vidéos Europe Récession

Un coup de gueule bien senti du euro-député sceptique Nigel Farage au sujet de la dérive autoritaire de l’Union Européenne

« You are very, very dangerous people indeed. Your obsession with creating this Euro-State means that you’re happy to destroy democracy. You appear to be happy for millions and millions of people to be unemployed and to be poor. Untold millions must suffer so that your Euro-Dream can continue… We don’t want that flag, we don’t want the anthem, we don’t want this political class. We want the whole thing consigned to the dustbin of history. »

Swiss Voters Reject Nationwide Minimum Tax for Top Earners

Switzerland’s voters rejected a proposal to increase taxes for the nation’s top earners, following the recommendations of most national leaders.

In a referendum today, 59 percent of voters turned down the proposal by the Social Democrats to enact minimum taxes on income and wealth. Residents would have paid taxes of at least 22 percent on annual income above 250,000 francs ($249,000), according to the proposed changes.

Switzerland’s executive and parliamentary branches had rejected the proposal, saying it would interfere with the cantons’ tax-autonomy regulations. The changes would also damage the nation’s attractiveness, the government, led by President Doris Leuthard, said before the vote.

The Alpine country’s reputation as a low-tax refuge has attracted bankers and entrepreneurs such as Ingvar Kamprad, the Swedish founder of Ikea AB furniture stores, and members of the Brenninkmeijer family, who owns retailer C&A Group.
