OECD BEPS to have big impact on taxes for multinational (re)insurers.
The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) published its Base Erosion Profit Sharing (BEPS) action plan in July 2013 to address perceived flaws in international tax rules. The Plan was endorsed by G20 with implementation to be completed by the end of 2015. WRIN.tv spoke with John O’Leary, a Tax Partner in Financial Services at PwC, to gain some insights into the potential impact these tax rules could have on insurers and reinsurers. According to Mr. O’Leary the G20 does not believe multinational corporations are contributing enough and the OECD was charged with developing a solution. “The OECD identified a number of flaws in the international tax regime including the problem of double ‘non-taxation’ – where companies have income, but are not taxed, in two different jurisdictions. The OECD also identified issues in the “misalignment of profit and substance”, where companies have profits in one country and substance in another. The OECD’s BEPS has a 15-point action plan to redesign the international corporate tax system, including: Defining a ‘taxable presence’ within a country that a company is doing business,. This will make it more difficult to sell across borders without having a taxable presence. Restrictions on interest deductibility, particularly when it has been paid through other group companies Risk and capital Controlled foreign company rules Mr. O’Leary believes BEPS, in its current form, will impact international reinsurers doing business across borders. Many reinsurers are “doing business on a ‘freedom of services’ basis, which means they don’t have a presence in countries where they are selling services.” It’s going to be much more difficult going forward. Other ‘freedom of services’ structures will be affected as well, including: MGAs, Sales Rep offices and sales functions. Companies will have to determine if they have a taxable presence. With regard to risk and capital, the OECD’s position is that it alone cannot drive the location of profit. Mr. O’Leary says “…risk and capital has to be backed up with substance…and for the insurance industry, substance means underwriters, assumption of risk function, and management of that risk.” According to the OECD “It’s the location of key people around the risk, aligned with risk and capital that is going to drive the location of profits going forward. Mr. O’Leary says there is talk of a carve-out for the insurance sector, but no decision has been made as yet.

South Korea's employment rate ranks 21st out of 35 OECD countries: Report
지난해 한국 고용율 66.1%... OECD 35개국 중 21번째 The last several years have been a difficult time for Koreans to find work,... dogged by a stubbornly high unemployment rate and stagnant wage growth. A new report has laid the problems bare,... painting a relatively grim picture of the country's employment market. Park Soyun reports. 2017 has been a grind for South Koreans looking for work,...especially younger Koreans... with the youth unemployment rate hovering at an all-time high. And a new report doesn't paint a pretty picture either. A new OECD report,.. released by Korea's Ministry of Employment and Labor on Thursday,... shows South Korea's employment rate ranks at a lowly 21st out of 35 OECD countries. The employment rate in 2015 was 66-point-one percent among people between 15 to 64 years of age. Annual work hours for South Koreans were also the second highest at 2,071 hours, trailing only Mexico. The labor income share ranked 23rd out of the 35 OECD countries at 64-percent. The report forecasts that the number of young, middle-aged, and elderly workers will all decrease as the country ages amid the chronically-low birthrate. In terms of gender, there was a higher number of women in the working age population than men, and this trend is expected to continue. The employment rate of young people between the ages of 15 and 29 has been declining in the past,... but has started to show a slight increase since 2013. The employment rate of people over 50 has steadily increased since 2003, but the number of recently employed is slowing down. Experts say the data shows South Korea still has a long way to go in improving working conditions, which are among the harshest in the OECD. Park Soyun, Arirang News.

Universal Basic Income is Not a Solution
Please watch: "How Facebook targeted advertisements track you online, offline and where they sell your private data" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9sFl2qGedFQ -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Follow me: https://twitter.com/The_HatedOne_ https://www.reddit.com/user/The_HatedOne/ https://www.minds.com/The_HatedOne Help us fight for our digital rights: https://act.eff.org/ Universal Basic Income is not a solution Universal basic income. If even Elon Musk supports this idea, it must be revolution. Or could it lead to the end of democracy? For the past 10,000 years, human economic interaction depended on the ability to exchange goods and services for other commodities and eventually money. Today, automation has a potential to destroy 45% of our jobs. If there comes a time when large portion of population is no longer economically productive, implementing universal basic income would eliminate poverty, bud deepen income and wealth inequality. Universal basic income would permanently separate wealthiest technology owners from everyone else who didn’t happen to create a multi-billion dollar technology start-up. With everybody receiving equal amount of benefits without having the ability to earn for themselves, the option to improve your standards would disappear. It would eventually make everybody own equally basic wealth except for those who make the decisions. Essentially, everybody who doesn’t own artificial intelligence will fall into this category. If you give unemployable people universal basic income, you sure improve their living standards, but nothing is going to change on their ability to participate in the decision making. Their voice would be limited to casting a vote to whomever promises them the highest benefits. Not only is the universal basic income just one option out of many when dealing with poverty, it’s the least desirable. The fact that the Sillicon Valley so keen on introducing this idea so much ahead of its time is deeply troubling. It would grant them ultimate monopoly powers on the market as they would be the first and only owners of the automation. Universal basic income would thus make barriers to entry the market with your own entrepreneurship, because you wouldn’t be able to increase your income or make profits on your own. The real problem why automation deepens inequality is the existence of high barriers to entry the market and diversify competition in automation driven industry. Most of the artificial intelligence is through corporate protective regulations within the hands of few multi-billion dollar transnational companies. The rate of new entrepreneurs entering the market is declining fast. Technology start-ups are no longer focusing on creating new products, but rather spend most of their resources on improving the data collecting AI to make it more and more invasive. It creates a multi-billion dollar bubble that will burst once buyers no longer have enough wealth to keep their spending. Universal basic income sounds like the same solution as the financial bailout of the banks that crashed the economy. That is a no solution at all.

Chief economist gives latest growth report; comments on Greece
(10 Mar 2010) SHOTLIST 1. Wide of news conference 2. Pan from reporters and camera in foreground to podium 3. SOUNDBITE (English) Pier Carlo Padoan, Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development Chief Economist: "So as I said, we are still in difficult times. Recovery is slowly gaining pace, but we still are not sure that recovery is moving from policy driven, which has largely been the case for the recent past, into more self-sustained. And this is the challenge policy-makers will have to face." 4. Back shot of reporters 5. SOUNDBITE (English) Pier Carlo Padoan, Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development Chief Economist: "Our message is that in looking at where to cut spending and looking at where if needed to raise taxes, governments should ask themselves a question: what is the tool kit, the basket of measures in spending cuts and tax increases that would be least harmful to growth. In other words, let''s look at the quality of public finance consolidation in addition to the quantity because ultimately better quality will mean less painful quantity adjustment, in a way." 6. Wide of stage 7. SOUNDBITE (English) Pier Carlo Padoan, Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development Chief Economist: "The recommendations are very clear. For a country like Greece you need to act on the fiscal site, and therefore addressing very forcefully the root causes of your fiscal problems through spending cuts and increasing taxation where appropriate, but also you need measures which reinforce growth in the medium term. In the case of Greece, it has been argued and I would agree with that, that is a fiscal problem meaning that is a public sector problem. But it is also a more general problem of the structure of the economy which need to be strengthened in its growth engines, in its productivity. There is clear lack of competition, lack of liberalisation in some sectors. There is a need to address pension reforms, to improve labour market participation. Those are structural measures which need to be taken now, in addition to the fiscal consolidation measures." 8. Wide end of news conference STORYLINE Rich countries must strengthen financial market regulation and bring down their oversized government deficits, two of the biggest new challenges to have arisen from the global economic crisis, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development said on Wednesday. In a 30-nation report, the chief economist of the Paris-based group said restoring public finances to health would be a "daunting task" for most OECD governments. There was no specific mention of Greece''s fiscal crisis in the report entitled "Going for Growth", an annual overview of economic reforms, but the OECD recommended cutting social spending as a general tool to reduce government debt. Its policy prescriptions for Greece included reducing incentives for early retirement, privatisation, and easing employment protection - measures that could be difficult to swallow for a public already balking at painful spending cuts. The Greek government is trying to reduce its deficit from 12.7 percent of gross domestic product to regain market confidence. OECD Chief Economist, Pier Carlo Padoan, said all governments facing ballooning deficits should seek efficiency gains from public spending, particularly in education and health, and avoid "harmful" labour and capital taxes. He said in the 250-page report that regulators across the OECD need to step up ongoing efforts to strengthen financial market regulation The OECD recommends that firms which pose a greater systemic risk be subject to "special measures" because they could be more tempted by risky behaviour.

🏠 💰Remembering the global financial crisis, 10 years on | Counting the Cost
Ten years ago today, the Wall Street bank, Lehman Brothers, collapsed. But this event wasn't about a 150-year-old bank. Lehman was a key part of a chain reaction, one which ultimately threatened to unravel the global financial system. Banks across the United States had been offering housing loans to people with bad credit for years, so-called "subprime mortgages". Those loans were packaged into risky products and sold onto global institutions with very little or no regulation. Lehman triggered widespread panic over fears that the system was riddled with bad debt. Thus, credit dried up and banks stopped lending to each other. Governments had to bail out banks and enact emergency measures. Taxpayers money was pumped into the global financial system to keep it alive. The loss of confidence in the system led to a global recession and a huge collapse in consumer wealth, with after effects still being felt today. So, what's changed since Lehman's collapse? Global growth has recovered since the great financial crisis and the recession that followed. The world is on track for 3.9 percent growth in 2018, according to the IMF. But that recovery is very uneven. We've seen a decade of record-low interest rates and new rules and regulations to shore up the banking system. But the emergency measures used to stimulate the economy and bring it back to life has been in use for much longer than intended. Quantitative easing or government buying of assets helped preserve wealth for those that had it. But young people today can't afford to acquire assets. That wealth gap is on the increase. Globally, total debt is now worse than before the collapse of Lehman Brothers. The global economy currently has a $237 trillion total debt, some $70 trillion higher than before the Lehman Brothers collapsed, according to the Financial Times. Addressing income inequality is something which will help to save the current system, rather than undermine it. Russell Jones, partner, Llewellyn Consulting and ex-employee of Lehman Brothers Those record-low interest rates in the developed world meant it was cheaper for developing nations or emerging markets to borrow in dollars or euros. About $40 trillion was added to the debts of emerging markets since 2008, according to the Institute of International Finance. And we're now entering an era in which central banks like the US Federal Reserve aren't keeping rates low any more, thus lending support to the dollar. So as the dollar rises, it's now costing those emerging markets a lot more to repay their debts. "Although the international financial system is a lot safer than it was in 2007, or at least better equipped to deal with the sort of crisis which began in 2007-2008, there are still some outstanding problems - not least in the area of economic policy," explains Russell Jones, a partner at Llewellyn Consulting and an ex-employee of Lehman Brothers. "We are overly dependent upon the monetary policy. The mix of fiscal and monetary policy is still too skewed in favour of what central banks have to do. There's been a lot of shortcomings where structural or supply-side policy is concerned and that's left us with a lower potential rate of growth in the advanced economies." "I am also concerned there's an element of backtracking on some of the financial sector reforms in the United States. This is something we see quite often: the desire to reform the financial sector after a crisis tends to weight-in the longer we're in the recovery ... and you can see that in some of the things the Trump administration's done recently." Jones expressed concern that "the cooperation between the major economies is under a great deal of pressure at the moment. Mr Trump has launched quite an attack on the international financial institutions and it was through the guise of those financial institutions (IMF, World Bank, OECD) that a lot of policy measures that were taken at the depth of the crisis were conducted through or with the help of, and we're now in an environment where there's a lot more bilateralism, there's a lot less multinationalism because the American government is undermining these institutions and that's extremely troubling."

Invention vs Innovation
In its purest sense, “invention“ can be defined as the creation of a product or introduction of a process for the first time. “Innovation,” on the other hand, occurs if someone improves on or makes a significant contribution to an existing product, process or service. In other words, they are, as Andrew Wyckoff, Director of the OECD's Directorate for Science, Technology and Innovation (STI), related but not identical. Innovation flows from invention. It is a core competency, sought by both companies AND governments alike. And countries that harness innovation and entrepreneurship as engines for new sources of growth will be more likely to pull out and stay out of recession. Consider the microprocessor. Someone invented the microprocessor. But by itself, the microprocessor was nothing more than another piece on the circuit board. It’s what was done with that piece — the hundreds of thousands of products, processes and services that evolved from the invention of the microprocessor — that required innovation. The same can be said for the Internet, as we understand it today. Or Apple’s ubiquitous iPhone, where Apple took a stagnant product category - the mobile phone - and completely rethought how it could be used. They took an existing product category and existing technologies, but still somehow reshaped modern society. Apple’s innovations in design and user interface sparked a tech revolution. In general, most national and sub-national governments have developed some policy frameworks to encourage innovation. Why not? Innovation, after all, is said to drive growth. No less an authority than the great Joseph Schumpeter affirmed as much. As a result, there has been a remarkable convergence of opinion on the importance of research and development (R&D), though there is still considerable diversity over the best policies for encouraging it. And it is also the case that innovation per se is not a magic pill that will solve many of the current afflictions that ail our modern 21st century economy - growing inequality to cite one example, or the "Uberization" of our economy, as another troubling example which Wyckoff cites in the interview below. As the interview makes clear, Wyckoff is a champion of innovation, but not a mindless cheerleader.

She asserted how today everyone wants to work with tech companies and never for other consumer brands, to which she replied, "More room for me." After $32 million raised, she abandoned her Sengalese beverage company to create a high-end natural skin-care company. She knew that for the world to change its perception of Africa, and for Africa to change its perception of the world, that she should use the power of consumer brands: "At the end of the day, we are nothing more or less than human beings. I want to enhance the human experience." In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

Algorithmic Consumers
Hate shopping? The next generation of e-commerce will be conducted by digital agents, based on algorithms that will not only make purchase recommendations, but will also predict what we want, make purchase decisions, negotiate and execute the transaction for the consumers, and even automatically form coalitions of buyers to enjoy better terms, thereby replacing human decision-making. Algorithmic consumers have the potential to change dramatically the way we conduct business, raising new conceptual and regulatory challenges. This game-changing technological development has significant implications for regulation, which should be adjusted to a reality of consumers making their purchase decisions via algorithms. Despite this challenge, scholarship addressing commercial algorithms focused primarily on the use of algorithms by suppliers. In this presentation we explore the technological advances which are shaping algorithmic consumers, and analyze how these advances affect the competitive dynamic in the market. We analyze the implications of such technological advances on regulation, identifying three main challenges. We further discuss some of the challenges to human autonomous choice that arise from these developments, and examine whether the existing legal framework is adequate to address them.

ECGI Focus Panel - "Common Ownership: Antitrust Meets Corporate Governance"
The ECGI focus panel on “Common Ownership: Antitrust Meets Corporate Governance”, moderated by Prof. Marco Becht (ULB), composed of Prof. Xavier Vives (IESE), Barbara Novick (BlackRock), and Greg Medcraft (OECD). The panel discussed the challenges faced by asset managers holding significant stakes in multiple companies in the same industry. The discussion brought out very clearly the tension between increased stewardship and governance involvement on the one hand, and concerns about potential collusion between competing firms having the same shareholders. The discussion highlighted the desirability of increased stewardship engagement that does not impair product market competition and thus entails no antitrust liability risk for asset managers.

#ElectionEconomics | 2. Productivity & Business | Anna Valero
Low productivity is probably the greatest challenge facing the UK economy, according to 'Productivity & Business' by Anna Valero, part of the CEP #ElectionEconomics series. See http://cep.lse.ac.uk/election2015/. Objective, brief and non-technical, CEP Election Analysis is a series of background briefings on the policy issues in the May 2015 UK General Election, from the Centre for Economic Performance. More: - UK productivity (GDP per hour) and income grew faster than in France, Germany and the United States between 1979 and 2008, reversing a century of relative decline. Increases in higher education, tougher product and labour market competition, the adoption of information and communication technologies, and innovation policies all contributed. · UK productivity stagnated after the Great Recession of 2008-09 and remains about 15% below historical trends. This ‘productivity puzzle’ is due to a mixture of cyclical and structural effects – the fall is not entirely permanent. · The poor performance in recent years has widened a longstanding productivity gap between the UK and other countries. UK GDP per hour is currently around 17% below the G7 average. This is due to low investment (especially in infrastructure and innovation), poor management and weak intermediate skills. · Weak competition, short-termism and bad debts in the banking sector have hurt access to finance for productive businesses, especially innovative small and medium-sized enterprises. Pro-competition policies in banking have delivered limited results. · All parties agree on the importance of improving the UK’s productivity performance, and that business policies that boost innovation and investment are key, in particular through improving firms’ access to finance, information and expertise. There is also consensus for support for key industries via the new form of industrial policy. · The parties appear to be committed to ring-fencing the science budget, but no party has so far committed to protecting it in real terms. This is a concern since government-financed research and development is important both in its own right and through the many benefits it brings to innovation in the private sector. · There are differences between the parties on corporate tax, regulation and corporate governance. It is important that the principle of independent regulation be protected without heavy-handed intervention by politicians. Anna Valero, co-author of the report, concludes: ‘The UK’s longstanding productivity underperformance has been heightened since the global financial crisis. ‘To meet this central policy challenge, the UK needs a long-term framework for investment and innovation. This ties in with many other policy areas, not least ensuring that there is an adequate supply of skills and a strong infrastructure network.’ ENDS

Financial Oligarchy and the New Robber Barons w/Derivatives Guru Janet  Tavakoli
Follow us @ http://twitter.com/laurenlyster http://twitter.com/coveringdelta Welcome to Capital Account. Bernanke speaks and everyone seems to listen. In a speech today, he warned about the job market and said continued accommodative easy-money policies will be needed to make further progress. This has the financial press reading the tea leaves and saying more QE. Is it really because, as our guest says -- TBTF really means "trust Bernanke to fund?" She's Janet Tavakoli, author of "The New Robber Barons: How Bankers created an International Oligarchy," and she's here to talk about the too big to fail banks, the financial oligarchy, and how MF Global fits into this web of derivative inspired meth lab of shadow liquidity and off-balance sheet risk. And since we are on the issue of MF Global, what's the latest on its former CEO, Jon Corzine? Did he or didn't he knowingly transfer close to 200 million dollars in customer money from MF Global to JP Morgan on one occasion before the firm imploded? Internal emails that have come out reportedly point different ways. Regardless, has he gotten away with other types of fraud already? And do credit derivatives, like those used to bet the firm on Europe's debt crisis, continue to pose a major risk to markets? And does regulation do anything to stop this? To top this off, a recent report by the OECD predicts that by 2020, 75% of the US population will be obese. We'll ask if this is deflationary for the global economy and a drag on economic growth. Jim Cramer, of CNBC seems to have a different take. Demetri gives his two cents during "Loose Change."

Sales tax explained for non-U.S. companies
An explanation of how sales tax works for foreign companies. Learn more about sales tax here: http://www.avalara.com/learn/ The U.S. is one of the very few countries in the world that applies a final sales tax as it's primary transactional tax system. Most OECD countries use a VAT or GST system. If you're not used to doing business in the the U.S., this can make understanding sales tax a bit difficult. So today I'm going to explain what sales tax is and focus on three key areas of compliance. How does sales tax work in the U.S? Well sales tax is a consumption tax on the final sale of a good or a service. Let's take the example of a retailer in U.S. that sells to a consumer. They are selling work boots here. The retailer would charge sales tax on the sale of the work boots as a percentage of the sales price, collect that tax from the consumer and remit it to the right government agencies at the right times. Seems pretty simple. However, there a few factors which make sales tax compliance in the U.S quite complex. Number one, there are over 12,000 taxing jurisdictions in North America and each can have their own rules and rates when it comes to sales tax. So the retailer needs to keep track of the right Sales Tax rate for these work boots across all the jurisdictions where they do business. Rules can also vary regarding product taxability. So those work boots might be taxed at different rates in different states relative to other types of clothing. In some states, they may be exempt. And there're also certain times of the year when they might be exempt in certain states. For example in Texas, there is a sales tax holiday, often in August where work boots are exempt from tax, but for the rest of the year, you need to charge sales tax on work boots in Texas. This makes for a very complex set of rules when you are trying to stay compliant in the U.S. Let's jump further up in the supply chain. Unlike VAT or GST, where tax is remitted to the government each time value is added, sales tax is only collected and remitted on the final sale. Let's say you had a manufacturer who made the work boots and sold it to the retailer. Even though they might not collect tax from the retailer, because the retailer is a re-seller, they are still on the hook for some paperwork. They need to collect documentation that proves this is a tax exempt sale and there are some other reasons you might make tax exempt sales in the U.S. For example some entities enjoy tax exempt status such as non-profits. Then there is the question of where a business is obligated to collect and remit sales tax in the U.S. The question of nexus, nexus being the connection between the business and the taxing jurisdiction that triggers the tax obligation. These, again, vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. So in most jurisdictions, if you have physical presence there, like a warehouse or office buildings, you likely have to collect and remit sales tax there. However, there're are other laws. For example, if you have remote workers in some tax jurisdictions, you might have nexus there. If you send people to trade shows in some jurisdictions, you might have nexus there. If you work with affiliates in some jurisdictions, they can give you nexus. To the extent that in some jurisdictions, if an affiliate puts a link on their website that sends customers to your website, you could be liable for collecting sales tax in that jurisdiction. As you can see, a simple tax concept can get quite complex in the U.S. We have a lot of resources on our side including white papers and videos if you'd like to learn more about any aspects of this tax system. In the meantime, I hope this helps you understand U.S. Sales Tax a little bit better. Thanks very much. I'll see you next time.

Deloitte Partner wonders: Are regulators ready for Solvency II?
Glenn Gillard, a Financial Services Partner at Deloitte, speaks about the implementation of Solvency II, Base Erosion Profit Sharing (BEPS), and conduct regulations that could affect insurers in the near future. The final phase of preparing for Solvency II is coming to an end said. Mr. Gillard believes the current challenges surround what is going to be delivered, especially around Pillar III and quantitative reporting. On the governance side, preparations concern installing Solvency II as part of “business as usual, proving the use test and ORSA capital models.” According to Mr. Gillard, the first few years after implementation are transitional. Companies will be getting feedback from the regulators and the model use cases…reporting will be modified to take that feedback into consideration. Mr. Gillard says one of the big challenges is determining where the regulators are in terms of regulations. Most of the member states do not have legislation in place, so “the big challenge…is how ready are (regulators) to actually regulate.” There is a big debate about global regulatory standards, Mr. Gillard added. How much alignment will there be between individually regulated countries and global standards? The one common glue, Mr. Gillard says, is the “concept of the ORSA, which will help with… alignment of the different country processes.” The OECD’s Action Plan on Base Erosion Profit Sharing (BEPS) is also being debated, according to Mr. Gillard. This is going to transform where companies are domiciled and how multinationals organize their affairs from a tax perspective. “Overall…tax is falling down the list of priorities as they look at structuring and domiciles and other (priorities) moving up the list in terms of capital management, risk management .” The next big area of regulation is going to be around “conduct risk and conduct regulation.” There is a shift towards protecting the consumer and regulators are going to be looking for ways to protect them by looking at how companies conduct risk and how products are packaged.

Plan B -- is there an alternative to economic growth?: Miklós Antal at TEDxDanubia 2014
Miklós Antal, ecological economist, is a postdoctoral researcher at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. He now studies macroeconomic aspects of sustainability transitions. Previously he was engaged in energy modeling at the Central European University in Budapest. He got his PhD in economics and MSc in engineering-physics at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. His multidisciplinary research interests are reflected by a number of publications in respected scientific journals, both in natural and social sciences. His commitment to sustainability is not restricted to academic life, he is the scientist who also "walks the talk": his cell phone was hip ten years ago, he avoids flying (which can be a challenging principle to follow at times) and actively encourages his environment to explore the joys of green living. Antal Miklós a Barcelonai Autonóm Egyetem posztdoktori ösztöndíjas kutatója. Jelenleg a környezeti fenntarthatóság makroökonómiai aspektusait vizsgálja. Ezt megelőzően energetikai modellezéssel foglalkozott a Közép-Európai Egyetemen. Gazdaságtudományi doktoriját és mérnök-fizikus diplomáját a Budapesti Műszaki és Gazdaságtudományi Egyetemen szerezte. Széleskörű érdeklődését jelzi, hogy mind társadalomtudományi, mind természettudományi területen számos cikke jelent meg rangos nemzetközi folyóiratokban. Ő az a kutató, aki nem csak elméletben éli meg a fenntarthatóságot, hanem mindennapjaiba is beépíti azt: mostani telefonja 10 éve volt menő, nem repül (ami a nemzetközi munka kapcsán jelent némi kihívást), és igyekszik a környezetében lévő embereknek a „zöld" életforma érdekes és élvezetes aspektusait megmutatni.
