  26. Amazon and Facebook to fall under new G7 tax rules - Yellen (06/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    'Both Amazon (AMZN.O) and Facebook (FB.O) will fall under new proposals for a global minimum corporation tax agreed by the Group of Seven on Saturday, United States Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said. Asked whether the two companies would be covered by the proposal, Yellen said: "It will include large profitable firms and those firms, I believe, will qualify by almost any definition." The joint statement by G7 finance ministers earlier on Saturday said it would tackle tax avoidance by "the largest and most profitable multinational enterprises". Amazon has lower profit margins than most other tech companies, and European countries had been concerned it would escape extra taxation under initial U.S. proposals to the G7.'

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-05-04/yellen-says-spending-jump-could-mean-higher-interest-rates Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said Tuesday afternoon she wasn’t forecasting interest-rate increases to rein in any inflation spurred by President Joe Biden’s proposed spending, clarifying comments that ruffled financial markets a few hours earlier. “It’s not something I’m predicting or recommending,” Yellen, a former Federal Reserve chair, said during an online event hosted by the Wall Street Journal. “If anyone appreciates the independence of the Federal Reserve, I think that person is me.” Yellen said she didn’t anticipate a bout of persistently higher inflation, but that if one occurred the central bank has the tools to deal with it. The Biden administration has proposed additional long-term spending packages totaling about $4 trillion on top of the $1.9 trillion it pumped into the economy beginning in March to combat the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

  32. Janet Yellen to call for global minimum tax rate (05/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Janet Yellen will use her first major address as Treasury secretary to argue for a global minimum corporate tax rate, Axios has learned, as she makes the case for President Biden’s plan to raise U.S. corporate taxes to fund his $2 trillion+ infrastructure plan. Why it matters: Convincing other countries to impose a global minimum tax would reduce the likelihood of companies relocating offshore, as Biden seeks to increase the corporate rate from 21% to 28%. “Competitiveness is about more than how U.S.-headquartered companies fare against other companies in global merger and acquisition bids,” Yellen will say today in a speech to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, according to an excerpt of her prepared remarks obtained by Axios. "It is about making sure that governments have stable tax systems that raise sufficient revenue to invest in essential public goods and respond to crises, and that all citizens fairly share the burden of financing government." "We are working with G20 nations to agree to a global minimum corporate tax rate that can stop the race to the bottom." The big picture: President Trump lowered the U.S. rate from 35% to 21%, arguing that U.S. companies were at a global disadvantage and were being incentivized to relocate offshore. The average corporate rate in the G7 is 24%, with some nine countries recently lowering their corporate rate, according to the Tax Foundation, a conservative tax group. Biden’s plan would also raise the international minimum rate for foreign profits from U.S. companies from 10.5% to 21%, which would still be lower than the 28% domestic corporate rate. Driving the news: Biden has tapped five Cabinet secretaries to explain — and sell — his plan to the American public, including Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Marcia Fudge, Labor Secretary Marty Walsh and Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo. Yellen’s task is to make the international case. Her speech also is designed to set the tone for the annual spring International Monetary Fund and World Bank meetings in Washington, which will begin virtually this week. Between the lines: Biden has been relying on Yellen to convince the business community and reassure Wall Street that his $2 trillion+ infrastructure proposal, on top of his $1.9 trillion stimulus package, won’t lead to inflation. Now he’s deploying her to convince international finance ministers and central bankers that the world’s biggest economies need to act in concert on corporate rates to avoid a race to the bottom. Go deeper: Yellen will also challenge the world’s economic powers to focus on climate change and on ways to improve vaccine access for the world’s poorest countries. She will call for $650 billion in new “Special Drawing Rights” — essentially lines of credit at the IMF that can help developing countries access more U.S. dollars. The Trump administration was skeptical of new SDR allocations and many congressional Republicans are still opposed. The bottom line: By trying to convince other countries to impose a global minimum tax, Yellen is acknowledging the risks to the American economy if it acts alone in raising corporate rates. “Together we can use a global minimum tax to make sure the global economy thrives based on a more level playing field in the taxation of multinational corporations, and spurs innovation, growth, and prosperity,” she will say.

  37. Janet Yellen: “All threats to the nation’s financial system should be addressed” (02/04/2021 - AlphaStreet)
    Vishnu Beri The upheaval involving hedge fund Archegos Capital Management and the consequent impact on several large banks has sent ripples of shock across the global financial arena. The incident has drawn attention, yet again, to the urgent need of a relook at the workings of the financial sector in the U.S.  Speaking on the issue while presiding over the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) on Wednesday, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen spoke of an agenda to address “ongoing threats to the nation’s financial system”. These range from disruptions that occurred owing to the Covid-19 pandemic to recent developments, namely the hedge fund imbroglio. A note said the panel “discussed recent market developments related to hedge fund activities.” Speaking of the Archegos Capital Management issue, Yellen said, “Indeed, we are digging out of a deep hole now, but we should be mindful that the hole could easily have been deeper.” Strategy explained She went on to suggest the use of a three-pronged strategy to address areas of weakness in the U.S. Treasury and money markets, open-ended mutual funds and other non-bank financial market issues. She also spoke of dangers that climate change could pose to the system going forward.  Yellen also spoke of her intention to revive FSOC’s dormant hedge fund regulatory group to study risks posed by hedge funds. Speaking of this with regard to the coronavirus-induced mayhem that rocked the global economy last year, she said, “The pandemic showed that leverage of some hedge funds can amplify stresses, too. This council used to have a hedge fund working group, and as of today we have one again. We’re establishing the working group so that we can better share data, identify risks and work to strengthen our financial system.” The issue A family office run by former hedge fund manager Bill Hwang, Archegos Capital Management was forced to sell securities worth $20 billion at a very low price after the value of a certain portion of its portfolio witnessed a significant dip. This, in turn, prompted margin calls from banks such as Nomura, Credit Suisse, UBS, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. Archegos’ failure to pay margin money prompted liquidation of the company’s holdings at extremely low prices. The impact of this on the banks, quite naturally, is expected to be catastrophic.  Post the Lehman Brothers debacle in September 2008, the banking sector in the U.S. has been strictly regulated, or was believed to be.  However, rules governing the high-risk domain or the shadow banking sector are less stringent. This realm includes asset management firms, hedge funds and private funds that are overseen to a certain extent by various regulators across the globe. Family offices, however, do not come under any regulatory ambit till date. The post Janet Yellen: “All threats to the nation’s financial system should be addressed” first appeared on AlphaStreet.
