AmCham Policy Report: Issue 7 - August 4: US Presidential Elections: the "devil" or the deep blue sea

Remember a few years ago when the big discussion on television was whether the media had some public obligation to broadcast the political party conventions at all? Blame Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders for whatever you want, but they turned this year’s convention coverage into a reality television and social media festival. And, as it is with every good script, what happened in the end was not what had people talking (a Republican establishment rebellion against usurper Trump, or a Bernie Sanders-led floor revolution against Hillary), but what was anticipated: the nomination of Mr. Trump, and then Mrs. Clinton. The English version available here. The Czech version available here.

AmCham Policy Report: Issue 6 - August 2: Why is EET such a big deal?

No taxation without representation. The world often forgets that what made American patriots so angry at the British was not some romantic idea of personal freedom, but the right to have a say in how much of their income the government got to redistribute. The original Tea Party was a reaction to a higher tariff on tea. That should put the current arguments about Electronic Records of Sales (EET) into some perspective. Ministry of Finance officials seem confused by the fierce resistance to what they view as a practical measure for reducing the amount of fraud in the system. They argue - correctly– that EET should both raise enough revenue to reduce the pressure for higher taxes and make life fairer for those who already play by the rules. The English version available here. The Czech version available here.

AmCham Policy Report: Issue 6 - June 6:The Future of Prague: Making Stuff Here, Selling It There

Cities attract people of different talents and skills. Its streets and buildings form competitive cauldrons where these differences are refined into specialization. Specializations combine into industries that produce a sum greater than the individual parts. Those sums are then sold elsewhere to create wealth. Cities, then, are the deep sea vent of economies: the place where elements collide to create new forms of life. That makes them vital for any national strategy of growth. In fact, such a strategy should piece together how the cities within a country’s borders can complement each other as they compete. Prague, today, has a challenge. Read a full version of the report in Czech and English here.
