After General Francisco Franco died in 1975, Spanish cinema was bursting at the seams. Many film directors broke free from the ancient taboos which had reigned under Franco's dictatorship, introducing characters who transgressed the traditional borders of social, cultural, and sexual identities. The women, homosexuals, transsexuals, and delinquents who were considered lost, dissonant bodies under Franco's rule became the new protagonists of Spanish cinema. “Here is a ‘book of passion' on the metamorphoses of post-Francoist Spain as it catapulted into the contemporary world (1975–95). It

What role do banks play in the provision of aggressive tax planning arrangements?

It also explores the internal governance processes that banks use to manage tax risk and the prevention, detection and response strategies applied by different revenue bodies in responding to the challenges that banks pose. The book makes a number of recommendations for revenue bodies and identifies best practices for consideration by banks. For exa

This report sets out the conclusions of the OECD Tax Intermediaries Study, that commenced in September 2006 following the Forum on Tax Administration's (FTA) third meeting in Seoul, Korea. The heads and deputy heads of revenue bodies who attended that meeting were unanimous in noting concerns about non-compliance with tax laws in an international context, in particular in relation to the spread of aggressive tax planning marketed by some tax intermediaries (e.g. law and accounting firms, other tax advisors and financial institutions). The mandate to the study team was therefore to improve unde

The financial and economic crisis had a devastating impact on bank profits, with loss-making banks reporting global commercial losses of around USD 400 billion in 2008. This level of commercial losses has brought tax risks for both banks and revenue bodies. These risks affect banks' profits, their capital base, and their level of certainty. For revenue bodies, the concern is that aggressive tax planning involving losses will further reduce already depleted tax revenues as a result of the crisis. This comprehensive report: Sets the market context for bank losses and provides an overview of the

Good governance in modern times requires attention not only to shifting relations between governments, citizens and parliaments, but to the effective functioning of government itself. One important issue is "Distributed Governance" - a term coined in this publication to capture the notion of proliferating public organisations operating with some degree of separateness from core government ministries. Despite the fact that in many countries more than half of public employment and central public expenditure is carried out through such bodies, they have not been comprehensively studied from a gov
