Tax in France : so what, now ?

Limage-du-jour

No, France is not a tax heaven, whatever tax credits, “niches” and loopholes they may have, grow or invent for entrepreneurs and rich people to stay and create jobs, finance innovation and buy or export “made in France” goods. Not yet.

And some rich and famous with brains, not only quite good football and rather average tennis players, have realized that the French borders, not to mention the Berlin Wall(s), are over.

But no, not all the rich and have of France rush to, or stay in Britain, whatever “Tapis Rouge” here and there.

And things may change in France, thanks to climate change and heavy raining and snowing in Europe.

Things may improve thanks to computers.

As France goes for world’s best practices, benchmark(et)ing and state of the art tax techno and propaganda.

Things may improve step by step, after a few coffee cups in Paris-Bercy …

Things may really improve, if and when French tax ministers read English.

Lenine used to say “The Soviets are communism with electricity”. Nowadays France may be communism with a keyboard and coffee.

European Fat Cats Suck ? And, they Drink, into the Bargain !

Fat Cat speak fast, eat fast, drink too ... fast

European Fat cats eat too much without thinking about the future of their children. They drink what they should export instead of thinking about whatever paradox that doesn’t work. And they seem pretty serious about sinking with their privileges.

Professional politicians are still doing good, year after year.

Always Xmas for fat_cats doing politics

Ecologist and other social (democrat ?) activists have learnt fast (fast cats ?)

Fat-cat after overdose of chili con carne

Banksters have been among the best adapted to the Euro environment.

Money fatcat

Well known Euro artists are attempting good enough (though they are nothing compared to English singing or playing global stars, not to mention soccer players with German cars or tennis retirees with Swiss chalets and accounts) but they sometimes lack talent and/or don’t train and work enough.

fat-cat-in-pot-attempt

Very watched (loved or hated, who cares as long as Paris talks ?) Depardieu is fat, too, but it is not the same Euro-Money Cat story. Not all people looking like fatcats, or even really being fatcats too some extent, are real Euro Fat Cats, the kind that kill their parents, f… their friends, never paid (more) taxes (than politicians), have been living in Ireland (like the unknown but screaming self-called writer Houellebecq), Patagonia (like maybe you know who, but I never remember the name of that other French screamer with a beard sometimes, sometimes not) or elsewhere like Gstaad (by the way, how is Johnny doing these days ?), Geneva (Montecarlo is not appopriate for French) or anywhere not too far, but not too close either,  from La Bastille (byzeway, where is Yannick these days ?) and have a nice Monday whatever end of other worlds (in French : “la faim dans le monde des autres”).

Fat-Cat--30630

One should not listen to Sardou or other French screamers like old politicians doing show-business or real business when growing still older, neither young show-business or other social activists doing politics when growing old enough to drive a car, being appointed ministers of unserious issues nobody cares about in France like culture, women, justice, digital economy, housing or nature, or cook a chili con carne themselves,  when they sing or talk or scream about Frenchonomics (meaning in normal XXIst century globish “economics that may work sur un malentendu with a lot of so French sens de l’humour”) , “égalité” (meaning in English “what is yours should be mine”) or other Euro-issues (meaningless nowadays), if one is not a French masochist. But reading, and thinking, may held avoid sinking into the ridiculous like Titanic or France, as the French (even ministers and other politicians) say when they haven’t smoked too much cannabis, and think when they are sober (which happens more than Xmas, when normal years used to be normal).

Quon-en-parle-plus-sardou

But anyway, who cares today about what and where French European Fat Cats will eat  and drink tomorrow, if any (or for Xmas, if any) ?
