These are my links for May 15th:
- Bank annual reports are 'unreadable' - Accountancy Age - Coutry by country reporting would change a great deal of that - we'd know what was hidden in tax havens for a start. And wouldn't that have helped avert the credit crisis?
- We are staying put, say pharmaceuticals giant AstraZeneca - Accountancy Age - Of course it is: It's the US - Sweden double tax treaty that I understand really pays them on pharma, and Ireland's not linked to that
- Credit crunch sees KPMG axe 90 staff - Accountancy Age - Perhaps they'll move on to doing something useful - KPMG's own research showed 50% of all mergers do not add value
- Bear Raid - Pirate Capitalism? European Tribune - Was the Bear Stearns takeover engineered by J P Morgan?
