 For human rights organization Amnesty International, Trump's proposed border wall - which even some members of the Border Patrol fail to see as an effective barrier - will only enrich criminal organizations involved in extorting money from immigrants on the Mexican side.

[OP-ED]: Why tax reform will be a slog

 01/19/2017 - 08:18
Whatever the explanation, the many pass-through taxpayers loom over the impending tax reform debate. Interestingly, the Tax Foundation suggests that the pass-through treatment should remain because it doesn’t discriminate against labor income. It is “difficult to justify why income from pass-through businesses should be subject to lower tax rates than income from wages and salaries,” the report says.

Tax “reform,” starting with taxes on business, seems to be on everyone’s agenda, and it may be a place where the incoming Trump administration and its Democratic critics find common ground. But it’s still going to be a slog, and one reason is so-called “pass-through” businesses whose taxes are levied at personal income tax rates.

"Inclusivo" y "diversidad" son los términos más mencionados en la actualidad en las corporaciones estadounidenses.

Inclusivo significa, en general, que no se debe actuar en forma tal que la gente sienta que la están dejando de lado intencionalmente; y diversidad denota las numerosas diferencias -ya sean religiosas, políticas, raciales o étnicas- que cada individuo aporta a su comunidad, escuela o empresa.
