The purpose of the attached study just issued by LATINDADD (Latin American Network on Debt,Democracy and Rights) is to analyze the impact of DTAs (Double Taxation Agreements)
on the government fi nancing system and the tax structure in Latin America,
and to open the dialogue to establish more progressive and fairer tax systems
in the region.
Last week the New York Times did something it has never done before - in its “Room for Debate” section it offered differing views on Venezuela. In the 14 years since Hugo Chávez was elected president of Venezuela, the Times has offered many op-eds and editorials against Venezuela - including its own editorial board piece supporting the 2002 military coup (which they later backpedaled from without apology). But they have never seen fit to publish even a single op-ed that contrasted with their editorial line (or reporting, for that matter) on this oil-rich country.
