Generating profit overseas
Companies tend to pay tax in the country they are incorporated in, and countries they are making sales (profit) in. They may however have operations in countries without making a profit there, e.g. a overseas call centre. For the staff of this call centre, the profitability of the company they work for does not benefit their country (although employment taxes do). I'd like to know, for every country in the world, how many of the workers generate profit overseas and how many foreign workers generate profit in that country.
If you get the sense from reading this blog that I like to think, and you believe that my kind of thinking might be useful to you or your organisation, please get in touch. I offer free consultancy for startups, delivered via email and instant messaging.
This blog is a hotchpotch of my thoughts, opinions, reviews, analysis of idioms, and links to articles that I have come across on my travels.
I would like to write a comprehensive philosophy or metareligion, but I haven't got the motivation. Likewise, I would like to write a book analysing sayings, idioms, phrases, quotes etc.
