A multilateral proposal to tax digital multinationals
Facebook and Google have backed a multilateral solution to digital taxes proposed by 134 nations. The OECD released its multinational tax governance framework this week, a key first step in establishing one of the most significant shifts in the international tax system since the 1920s. The proposed changes target digital giants with global turnover of more than $1.23 billion. The proposal addresses the "excess profit" of sales made by digital multinationals in countries without having a commensurate presence there for tax purposes. The alternative is a proliferation of countries bringing in their own digital services tax laws.https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/most-

Waterfront property owners give the public their waterfronts for free
Saving the properties on Lake Erie, one of the five Great Lakes in North America, from falling into the sea united the city and owners in common cause, allowing them to work together as a group. Handing over waterfront ownership would save the owners money on erosion control, a new lake trail would increase their property values, and the public would enjoy access to the lake. It was win-win-win. https://reasonstobecheerful.world/this-lake-is-for-everyone/

A better process for Governments to make major decisions
Independent research has found common ground on what is good policy making in Australia. There was clear agreement that there is most scope for improvement in government decision-making by using cost/benefit analysis, designing a rollout plan in conjunction with a policy statement and issuing a Green Paper to elicit public feedback before announcing a major policy decision in a White Paper. Major political parties are being asked to publicly commit to this process. https://www.smh.com.au/politics/nsw/half-baked-policies-push-for-public-input-on-contentious-nsw-laws-20190527-p51rm3.html
