just under $28000000000.00 and b e u, almost $8000000000.00, while the director of tax policy of the organization of economic cooperation and development told d w. this is a big step forward. but i think there is something like a celebration. it's been yes that good praying to introduce tax regulation of globalization and there we're getting that with something very significant. so celebration and also political impetuous to make sure that we have quick implementation for the agreement to become reality as quickly as possible. well, let's look at the reality of this agreement with gabriella booker. she's not celebrating the reforms joined us from ox them. gabriella. this 15 percent that i've been reading about isn't all that much different to the 12 and a half percent. that island is so famous for yes. hello ben, that's the problem. we have a global tax deal that is matched to some of the world's most notorious tax havens
8:19 pm
. so there would be an opportunity now. and, and of course, we all know the impact that we've has had the world over. we see the greatest rise in inequality soon. records begun and con, just everywhere in the world that only the least developed developed are needing to invest on the health systems on education, on keeping people alive in the middle of the week. but these 15 percent is too low and you know, the u. s. government has been pushing for 21 percent. and really what we can say is this moment and diamond shock, we've had collectively, worldwide, is similar to what happened after the 2nd world war. and at the time in texas were raised to 40 percent and 50 percent rates because that was the type of investment that was required to recover. and that actually meant there were years of, of prosperity and growth and recovery. isn't it more about closing the legal loopholes, though? because a lot of the time we're talking about tax evasion and tax avoidance,
8:20 pm
these companies getting away with it because they're allowed to because of the deals they have with these governments. and they're not even paying that official rate of say, 15 percent to or what they have in islands. 12 and a half percent. yes, it's true that you know, in, in, in very very large amounts are being lost to tax evasion and tax illusion. but, and the 15 percent risks and being a race to the bottom, you know, we wanted to really base the standards to much higher amount that can really mean a difference. and there's also too many loopholes, though the whole financial system has been excluded. and really, the sharing of firm and taxation globally is limited to those companies that are making over $20000000000.00 and above and only their turnover is more than 10 percent of their profits are more than 10 percent. so in the end, if you calculate very, very little there to developing countries, in fact,
8:21 pm
to the lowest and the least developed countries around 3 percent of the total rate would be arriving. so it's very, very small about and that's why this is actually risk to create a lot more inequality than we have right now. is that what governments worried about in the industrialized world? because there are so many governments behind this plan, but in your opinion, it's not going to change much. it's not going to bring in a heap more revenues for them. are they worried about the revenue is going to pull countries. so the revenues, as you said earlier, because the loopholes of tax haven will be this incentivized, the revenues are likely to increase, but they're mostly going to be and coming to g 7 countries and not to the majority of the world. and this has been raised, for example, the finance minister for us. and dina is saying this very clearly at the g 20 and
8:22 pm
many are questioning why not take this opportunity to have a fair tax system where companies and pay taxes where they have activity, where they have their assets, their people, where they, where they are producing. so this would have been that opportunity, and at this very important moment when this important investments are needing to be made, gabriella from some thank you very much for being on the show today. thank you. vertical farming is making its way into african cities to feed the surging populations of urban centers. the idea is to grow the crops out of the sides of tall sacks of birth to save space and reduce transportation. costs from the farm is a forest of vegetables, thriving in the snow courtyard. vertical farming makes it possible. so these improve food security and urban kenya. levine, sal cage grows, producing vertical plants and socks. when a small farming gets in,
