Mnuchin warns UK over digital tax plan

"The macro economic quote. Oh the day today comes to us. Courtesy of Treasury Secretary Very Steven Mnuchin by the World Economic Forum in Davos at which Mnuchin was on a panel where the conversation turned to European plans for a special tax on big Internet companies. Most of which the Internet companies are of course. American here is the Treasury Secretary. I think we've been pretty clear that we think that the digital taxes discriminatory discriminatory in nature. And you know if if People WanNa just arbitrarily put taxes on on our digital companies we'll consider arbitrarily putting taxes on car companies. There is a lot in that sixteen. Spare seconds of audio. So we're going to take it apart a little bit here for a bit. I the basics with molly would use of course the host of marketplace came on. Hey Guy or it's a hippie with a very quick primer on the idea of a digital tax explain yeah you have a lot of companies in Europe saying that there are these companies whose product is primarily digital right. It depends on data from their citizens and they're making a lot of money in these countries and they're saying look. We should get a piece of this revenue Pi. It's business being conducted here. It's taking away from and local businesses so France kind of kicked it off with this. Three percent digital tax and several other company countries are prepared to follow suit and the US mission said just does not like it why the US does not like they. You heard him say it is discriminatory hit it. It really does the tax on companies that make more than about eight hundred fifty million dollars in annual revenue globally and in the example of France. Do Twenty five million alien euro worth of digital sales in that country. So if you do that math. That's about three companies. Google facebook Amazon. And they're saying this is a target on American American companies and it's taxing these companies over and over and over on the same revenue an important factor. We should say that the president said maybe a couple of weeks ago if anybody's going to tax these companies America's is gonNA taxis company so there's also that Where does this go? Do you think right well. Not a way sure. Despite by the the state of the discourse and the conversation about it You know Francis said it's going to move ahead with this tax Italy Turkey Austria. Spain Belgium are are all considering digital taxes and the fact is that this is a real issue that does have to get solved this question of kind of how you deal with companies. He's of this. Is that fundamentally don't have boundaries so there's talk of a global tax structure may be being worked out within the OECD that it would be a major shift in global tax policy but without a doubt the conversations far from over Indo forget despite what the president said a lot of these big tech companies also. So don't pay their taxes in the United States right Interesting that this country by country in Europe and it's not under the umbrella. Yeah exactly and I think that's what what makes it so tricky now. France has said that were there to be an E. U. Wide Agreement on taxation. They would be willing to go along with that. That's a hard thing to work out. And it wouldn't an address any of the other countries that might come along and say that they also wanted digital tax.

Crying Over Spilt Milk? Americas Largest Dairy Producer Files for Bankruptcy

"From one. Three I'm David Brown and this is business worse daily on this Wednesday November twentieth for anyone over with the age of thirty. The idea that milk is an industry could be in trouble once seemed unthinkable as well the notion that we might not need gas to fuel our cars or coal to run our power our plants goodness. How will they get things done? Well in the past milk wasn't so much choice as a commodity of basic household necessity. But things change in these days. These things are changing. Fundamentally witness last week's bankruptcy filing by Dean Foods America's largest producer of cow's milk and other dairy products the ninety four or your old company was founded by Samuel e Dean and Intrepid Entrepreneur who purchased the illinois-based Pekka Taneeka evaporated Milk Company in Nineteen Twenty Five. The business business grew and changed over the decades today. It owns fifty eight brands including dairy pure milk. land-o-lakes butter true move flavored milk's in friendly's ice cream now the once multibillion dollar conglomerate is struggling to stay alive with sales and profits down its stock has declined eighty percent over the last year. The company filed now for bankruptcy protection on November twelve and is exploring a sale to dairy farmers of America. That organization is a Kansas based cooperative of more than fourteen thousand dairy every farmers many of which are deemed suppliers. Dean foods blames shifting tastes for its current predicament. Quite simply Americans aren't drinking nearly as much milk as we used to. Since nineteen seventy five milk consumption has fallen by forty percent in recent years. You can pin some of the blame on the rapid rise of plant based MILKS folks from Soy to almond banana to Oat milk. Sales of plant based milk shot up nine percent last year. According to the plant based Foods Association at the same time sales of cow's milk fell six percent indeed dean foods may be kicking itself for getting rid of one of its most profitable divisions in twenty twelve. Oh saying it wanted to focus more on its core dairy business. Dean spun off White Wave. One of the biggest producers of soy and other Plant Milks the French Yogurt Company then owned bought White Way. For ten billion in two thousand seventeen in a seemingly prescient move dean must have had second thoughts about forsaking the fast growing plant the milk market just last year. It took a majority stake in Boulder Colorado Flax Milk Company. Good Karma too little too late however and competition from plant. Milk isn't in Dean Foods. Only problem healthy alternatives to cow's milk have exploded more and more of us are drinking sparkling water Bucci's teas and organic juices not dimension simply plain old water. That's hurting milk sales so to the decline of lowly breakfast cereal. no-one pours milk on the energy bar. They eat during their morning commute. You'd either so there's that and then there is. Almost an entirely separate trend. Big retailers like Costco and Walmart are deciding. They need to control their own food. Supplies supplies for cost reasons and also for transparency into their supply chains last year Walmart one of Dean's biggest customers built. Its own milk processing plant in Indiana according to CNN Walmart can now supply five hundred of its thirty seven hundred stores with its own cheaper milk no longer as good a customer Walmart now poses a threat. Dean foods has secured eight hundred fifty million dollars in what's called debtor-in-possession financing that funding will allow it to meet its pension allegations and

"Happy monday and welcome back to collider movie talk. Today we are breaking down the box office and then on top of that. We get to talk a little chapter two because apparently the young kids in the movie. They're being the age <laughter> even they are not young enough to play their roles anymore. There is no hope for any of us but i will tell you there's hope in the future for andy circus because we are going to cover some breaking news right up top before we get to that though i have to welcome my panelists i have haley and rocca on the desk today. Yes very busy weekends and fun weekends. Yes you worked all weekend. I did john does that does did the junket doc it for radio not and for brian banks to films that i'm you all should be looking forward to seeing definitely some great stuff very fun people. Why did you do haley none of that ooh i i had a bit of the arthritis kick in some very old lady that that's true uh-huh i stayed in bed and caught up on some movies to did a lot of watch the boys i had already finished boys but i was. I was digging back into a little old and church prepare for mindhunter which is always think. That's a fine way to spend the weekend next week next week sometime down the exact date all right like i said we have some breaking news right up top for you. It is a t h._r. Exclusive andy circus chris has officially closed the deal to direct venom too so this was narrowed down from the shortlist. This is the final thing the official news. Does this give you any more more hope than maybe what you already had for venom to certainly i like the idea of any circus coming into the situation because of the motion capture experience a lot of people had issues with that in the first vendor movie some of the some all that stuff didn't quite one hundred sent word for people. I saw that some of the reviews i interested here because it's not like andy comes in with is great track record of movies so this is fascinating and you're stepping in for director who made eight hundred fifty million dollars on the first installment if you don't come close to that or are you fall underneath that that's kind of a strike against you so although we're excited that andy because we love eddie so much to take over this part i mean take over this directing job. It could would backfire for him if it doesn't hit the heights as the first film did. I'm a little conflicted on this because i think that for a lot of people the i didn't didn't turn out to be exactly what we were hoping for and yet <hes> found something to love in it anyway and part of that was was a very unique and sort of hard to put your finger on. You couldn't really plan for it. Charm that that came out of the approach the material and i don't know how easy that charm is going to be able to you know capture a second time around regardless of the director but certainly a director changeup. I speaks to a different experience. Maybe i don't know we'll see you make a great point with at the you know the motion capture. That's that's an up but i'm not like. I just feel that what worked in that first venom was so singular and specific. I don't know how that's gonna play into the filmmakers hand also can't entirely wrap my head around andy circus style as a director too when you think about him having directed a breathe and then also camogli sweet they're two completely different movies and i know he does specialize.

France passes controversial tax on tech companies

"The U._S. is pushing back like on a new tax law in France. That's aimed at big tech firms the usual suspects including apple facebook and Google the three percent taxes on sales generated in France by those companies president trump has ordered an investigation which could result in retaliatory tariffs. French Finance Minister Bruno Lemaire defended the new tax today saying France was quote sovereign and decided its own tax rules. Dave Lee is with our B._B._C. partners. He's there Silicon Valley reporter and joins us from San Francisco. How much is this tax in? Will it only affect U._S.. Companies it would only affect U._S.. Tech Companies Marco but the majority of the companies that are wrapped up in this new tax will be U._S.. Firms because this is the tax mess going to be on Internet companies that do business. It's in France but don't necessarily have a physical presence there so for example companies like facebook what this tax will seek to do is tax three percent on Internet companies that have global annual revenues of more than seven hundred fifty million euros as around eight hundred fifty million dollars and the French finance minister. He predicts that that's going to bring in around four hundred million euros to Franz every single year. What is the goal of this tech? I mean why is France doing this. We'll franc- this as something of leveling of the playing field is going the attacks on revenue rather than profit because of course one of the things that has been particularly for straightening too many governments around the world for some time now is the ability for technology companies to operate in countries where they have no real substantial presence which is something. I think that you know in times gone by companies simply weren't able to do but with the dawn of the Internet and social media and so forth that has become possible but has something Silicon Valley certainly isn't keen on because globally that will open them up to a lot more chances to be taxed in the countries where they're popular without France explicitly articulating it. Do you believe that this tax might be a form of punishment for many of these silicon valley companies not getting in order the disinformation on their social media platforms. I mean it certainly helps when it comes to expressing these policies both to colleagues in political circles in place La France but also the electorate as well. I mean one of the reasons why the U._S. has said this. Targets American companies is because politicians have explicitly mentioned American companies when they've in formulating these tax plans often we hear in soundbites politicians refer to this kind of thing as an Amazon tax or an apple tax. There was a recent incident with the leader of the opposition in the U.. K. When Amazon celebrated its twenty fifth anniversary recently recently the opposition leader sent a car to them saying many happy tax returns as a political stunt at P._S.. Done so it's a vote winner. Put it that way tighter regulations on tech companies is certainly something that all political shades seemed to be on board with the big reaction today has been from Washington. The trump administration announced a formal investigation into whether the tax unfairly discriminates against U._S. businesses. What would the U._S. do in retaliation? If the investigation concludes that there is discrimination yes well. This is the big question here. What exactly could this lead to now and it could be looking at adding tariffs on things of France is especially active with exporting to the U._S.? For example commercial aviation wine and so forth France exports a lot of that so that could be one one direction the U._S. might take although having said that we do know that the French Finance Ministry and the U._S. Treasury are in contact with each other and there's an increasing feeling. I think that this is a play by Franz to kind of force the issue. Do I think there is this desire not just from Franz from several countries to say what we need to do is not have this piecemeal tax situation in different countries around the world but the have one tax regime for everyone that means companies can't pick you can choose the countries that gives them favorable conditions to steal their money out that does seem more likely an agreement rather than major tariffs that could affect France. They Disease Silicon Valley reporter daily joining us from San Francisco. Thank you dave
