Epicenter & IEM – Credit day, Covid-19 as black swan or temporary inconvenience?

This year Credit Day for the European Union falls on the 17th of December. This is the day which, on average, EU member states have spent their tax-based revenues and start borrowing to meet their needs.

Chronique de Cécile Philippe, présidente de l’IEM, publiée le 31 août 2020 dans la revue Phébé. Dans son dernier opus, Why We Drive: Toward a Philosophy of the Open Road, le philosophe/bricoleur américain Matthew B. Crawford propose de remettre la technologie à sa place.

Epicenter & IEM – Maximum taxation, minimal benefits for France

Article by Noemi Amelynck published on the Epicenter blog. For the fifth consecutive year, France has been the champion of taxation, with the average French citizen paying more than half of their income into the state’s coffers. France’s tax policy remains inefficient and infringes upon the purchasing power of French employees, despite the slight decrease of overall taxation following the yellow vest protests. The fiscal Freedom Day in France falls on…

Epicenter & IEM – The issue at stake was not to choose between lives and the economy

We often hear that managing a crisis like coronavirus depends on societal choices. The choice would be to save lives or economies. Health and economic data show that reality is much more complex than this simplification of the dilemma. Some countries have managed to accommodate both.

Epicenter & IEM – The fake American stimulation: an economic analysis of Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act

We almost pity American federal and state elected officials for having to deal with the situation caused by COVID-19. Overnight, social media users have become self-proclaimed epidemiologists, but it remains difficult to judge whether the measures taken by states and the federal government are too little too late or the right response to a health crisis. In some ways, it is tempting to favour the federal responses to the economic…

Epicenter & IEM – Vaccine: we must change our absurd rules instead of castigating Sanofi

Excessively high taxes on production, exceedingly slow authorizations for market launch, and an overbearing bureaucracy. France is ensuring that innovation, especially regarding pharmaceuticals, happens outside of its borders. Opinion piece by Cécile Philippe, president of the Economic Institute Molinari, published in Les Echos. The Sanofi laboratory has recently been the subject of controversy regarding the vaccine it is developing to fight against coronavirus. We do not know yet whether the…

Epicenter & IEM – No relocation without tax and regulatory relief

French inadequacies in the face of the COVID-19 crisis are giving rise to a fully fledged attack on globalisation. We are observing an increase in speeches aimed at regaining sovereignty, particularly in the field of health. But the challenge for France is, above all, to address its internal weaknesses. Excerpts from an interview published with the Director of Institut Economique Molinari in Atlantico. Atlantico: What impact does French taxation have on…
