"We need a new low-content thread each month."

Your task is to prove or disprove this statement.

Re: Juno was an ok film (LC Thread)

Their research leads to two conclusions. First, tax evasion is extremely concentrated. The average Scandinavian household paid around 3% too little in taxes in 2006; the richest 1% of households, with net assets of at least $2m, underpaid by around 10%. The truly rich, though, behave truly differently. The top 0.01% of households, with net assets of over $40m, short-changed the taxman by a whopping 30%.

Second, the numbers imply that previous estimates of wealth inequality, often based on tax data, have understated the problem. And the Scandinavian statistics may provide a conservative estimate of worldwide tax-dodging: only around 2% of Scandinavian household wealth is held in offshore accounts, compared with the global average of 4%.

Globalisation has disproportionately benefited the rich in part by rewarding capital more handsomely than labour. But globalisation has also made it easier for the well-heeled to hide their wealth. In that sense, maybe the data should cause even more surprise: despite the best efforts of a lucrative global tax-evasion industry, Scandinavia’s ultra-rich are paying 70% of their taxes.

Nah. Australia just changed their target from Aboriginals to Chinese immigrants.

Is LA climate decent in winter? LA beaches are way better than Adelaide to be fair (although east coast beaches are on par)

I mean, yeah. It's kinda famous for that. Near the beach the weather is almost always good. Inland it's a bit hot in the summer for my taste, but even there it's not ridiculously hot and it's not often humid at all. We don't have A/C and have gone through winters with a broken heater no problem.
