コロナ 間違ったモデルに基づく間違った対策に、政府はまだ固執している

新型コロナ対策として、複数の専門家が様々なモデルをもとにそれぞれ異なる政策を政府に提言してきた。それらのうち、死者を極端に多く見積もったモデルを政府が採用したことが世界的なロックダウンにつながったが、今日までに、死者がそこまで多く発生した事実はどこにもなく、いわゆる専門家が提示したモデルが大きな間違いの第一歩であったことが判明した。少な目に見積もった専門家の試算も、現実から大きく外れていた。間違ったモデルに基づく間違った対策に、政府はまだ固執している



A Protest from France

After WWI, the distinguished British economist Edwin Cannan was asked, somewhat reproachfully, what he did during the terrible war years. He replied: “I protested.” The present article is a similar protest against the current lockdown policies put into place in most countries of the Western world to confront the current coronavirus pandemic.

Here in France, where I live and work, President Macron announced on Thursday, March 12, that all schools and universities would be shut down on the following Monday. On that Monday, then, he appeared on TV again and announced that the entire population would be confined starting the very next day. The only exceptions would be “necessary” activities, especially medical services, energy production, security, and food production and distribution. This policy response was apparently coordinated with other European governments. Italy, Germany, and Spain have applied essentially the same measures.

How to think post-Planet Lockdown
The times call for acting as poets instead of politicians

Between unaccountability of elites and total fragmentation of civil society, Covid-19 as a circuit breaker is showing how the king – systemic design – is naked.

We are being sucked into a danse macabre of multiple complex systems “colliding into one another,” producing all kinds of mostly negative feedback loops.

What we already know for sure, as Shoshana Zuboff detailed in The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, is that “industrial capitalism followed its own logic of shock and awe” to conquer nature. But now surveillance capitalism “has human nature in its sights.”

イスラエル最大の銀行が米国で76億ドルの脱税指南、罰金874百万支払い

Israel’s largest bank agrees to $874mn fine for conspiring to help US citizens hide $7.6 BILLION in assets overseas

The top bank in Israel will hand over just shy of $900 million to the US Treasury after it was implicated in a tax evasion scheme, helping Americans to hide billions of dollars in wealth in thousands of foreign accounts.

Bank Hapoalim BM, as well as its Swiss subsidiary, agreed to pay the damages after submitting a guilty plea over allegations that it concealed some $7.6 billion in over 5,500 secret Swiss and Israeli bank accounts, the Department of Justice announced on Thursday. The $874 million sum is the second-largest recovered by the Treasury in an offshore tax evasion case since 2008, the DOJ added.

“Today, Bank Hapoalim is being held accountable for its conduct – it has admitted to its crimes and will surrender all fees it earned, repay the United States for lost tax revenue, and pay a substantial fine,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Richard E. Zuckerman.

At least four senior bank executives, including two former board members, were “directly involved” in the tax avoidance scheme, according to US officials. They were implicated in the conspiracy in a years-long joint investigation by the DOJ, the Internal Revenue Service’s criminal division and US attorneys.

“Today’s resolutions and payment of $874 million make clear that tax evasion cannot be taken lightly,” deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen said, adding that “a fair tax system requires even-handed compliance, and honest conduct by all participants in the system.”

In a separate case brought by the US government, Hapoalim was accused of murky dealings with FIFA and laundering over $20 million in kickbacks and bribes to the international football organization’s officials. The bank will pay $30 million for its role in that plot, which was merely one facet of its broader money-hiding operation.

Primarily a retail bank, Hapoalim has some 250 branches in Israel and manages more than 2.5 million accounts in total, the DOJ said, while the Swiss subsidiary is based in Zurich and at various times during the US investigation kept branches in Geneva, Luxembourg and Singapore.
