There are a lot of discussions in my country about tax exemptions that some big corporations can have, in order to maintain jobs in France for Total, L’Oreal and whatever else. Even though the proportion of employees living abroad might be significant in some cases, whatever.

In the US, this is the story: this Win America lobby, with Tech titans like Google, Cisco, Apple, Oracle wants a tax break (From 35% to 5.25%) on foreign profits they return (“repatriate”) and create millions of jobs.

“We have the choice: bring the money home”.

French Government: bad defense. US Corporations: probably a good attack. This makes all the difference between the 2 countries. Jobs in those companies are mostly “at home” . Where are they in France? Nuclear industry probably?!

As we use to say in France, “la meilleure défense, c’est l’attaque”. I think you got it. Crisis is a fight.

This is the pitch: “Do you want to make the Internet better? We do too. And we’re always looking for people with great ideas. We need free spirits and straight shooters. Creatives and critics. Nerds with nerve. People who love the Internet, but can see its cracks… and future, too. At AOL we’re focused on radically redefining the world of online communications. We are transforming how people around the globe connect with information, entertainment and one another by bringing together award winning journalists and innovative technologies to create rich and engaging consumer experiences.
