The reason why Bukele expects a “giant jump” in the price of bitcoin

The president of El Salvador, Nayib B Watch, has once again given an encouraging forecast about the future of bitcoin (BTC). The Central American president believes that the wealthiest people in the world will want to add bitcoins to their investment portfolios and the total supply of BTC (21 million units) will not be able to satisfy everyone. This gap between supply and demand, according to Bukele, will take the price of BTC to the moon. There are more than 50 million millionaires in the world. Imagine when each one of them decides they should own at least ONE #Bitcoin But there will ever be only 21 million #Bitcoin No enough for even half of them. A gigantic price increase is just a matter of time. - Nayib Bukele 🇸🇻 (@nayibbukele) January 31, 2022 “There are more than 50 mil...

Wrapping up its February policy meeting, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) emphasized that ceasing bond purchases did “not imply” a near-term increase in interest rates and the Board was still prepared to be patient. “As the Board has stated previously, it will not increase the cash rate until actual inflation is sustainably within the 2 to 3% target range,” RBA Governor Philip Lowe said in a brief statement. “While inflation has picked up, it is too early to conclude that it is sustainably within the target band.” Article content The dovish ...

Copper rebounds on dollar pullback, Fed policymakers’ cautious tone

Article content Benchmark copper prices were firmer in early trade on Tuesday, as the US dollar lost ground and risk sentiment improved after Federal Reserve policymakers allayed investor fears of a rapid pace of monetary tightening. Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange was up 0.3% at $9,530.50 a tonne, as of 0236 GMT, following a 2.2% decline in January, pressured by the dollar's strength and concerns over prospects of a more hawkish US central bank. A firmer dollar makes greenback-priced metals more expensive to holders of other currencies, while higher US interest rates could trim liquidity in financial markets and hamper global economic recovery prospects, thus hurting demand for metals.

Does the gift and inheritance tax have all its past ahead of it?

To such an extent that it was finally repealed. The same fate befell the tax that was in force for a short time in the Province of Entre Ríos, a jurisdiction in which the justice declared it unconstitutional for not respecting principles of equity, tax capacity and for being confiscatory, after which it was also repealed. But then, is there currently a tax on the free transfer of goods? At the moment the only jurisdiction that maintains a tax of this type is the Province of Buenos Aires. And what kind of tax are we talking about? It is a direct tax, therefore according to the Constitution it corre...

About the tax structure and a paradigmatic example such as the insurance activity

In summary, indirect taxation represents almost 70%, while direct taxation makes up the smallest remaining portion (taxes on income and personal assets). Furthermore, since the structure is firmly based on consumption, most of the taxes are regressive and/or economically inefficient. One of the effects of regressiveness is the devastating effect it has on people with fewer resources -which is of greater concern with poverty rates above 40%- due to the greater negative impact it has on them (without going into analysis, even , its pernicious effects on income distribution, business organization or, eventually, its significant inflationary repercussions). 2|Direct tax As if this were not enough, when the group of direct taxes that reach "income" and/or "patrimony" is analyzed, the incom...

pharmaceutical industry? biopharmaceutical industry? biotech industry? All companies in these industries make medicines.

The reason is relatively simple: while just a few decades ago pharmaceutical companies produced their products exclusively chemically and biotech companies produced medicines biotechnologically (e.g. with the help of living organisms such as bacteria), these development methods have now mixed up. The pharmaceutical industry broadened its "portfolio" with acquisitions of biotech companies and restructuring of its own research and development. As a result, pharmaceutical companies such as Novartis, Pfizer, Roche and Sanofi are among the largest drug manufacturers in the wor...
