English as a global language of communication
English - the global language of communication
Throughout the modern history, the English-speaking countries have, somehow, dominated the global economy.
First, there was The Commonwealth – the British colonies, which included Canada, India, Australia, New Zealand, and other parts of the world. The British administration was installed in those territories, and along with it, domination over every economical domain like trading and industry.
English was declared the official language of these colonies.
Then, in the last few decades, the USA has become the largest economical power of the world, reaching a very high level of development.
Nowadays, it is the European Union’s aim to achieve ...
English Literature, literature produced in England, from the introduction of Old English by the Anglo-Saxons in the 5th century to the present. The works of those Irish and Scottish authors who are closely identified with English life and letters are also considered part of English literature.
According to research by the British Council, "English has official* or special status in at least seventy-five countries with a total population of over two billion. English is spoken as a native* language by around 375 million and as a second language* by around 375 million speakers in the world. Speakers of English as a second language will soon outnumber those who speak it as a first language

Like the old joke about London buses, you wait for ages and then three come along at once. This is suddenly the season for books on language development and change. This work covers some of the same ground as John McWhorter's book I reviewed last week and another book on a related theme will be reviewed next month. This one could not be more different in style to the last: it is as formal and European as John McWhorter's was informal and American (the author, Tore Janson, is a distinguished Swedish linguist who retired last year from his post as Professor of African Languages at Göteborg University).
Over 300 million people speak English as their first language. Estimates about second language speakers of English vary greatly between 150 million and 1.5 billion. English is the dominant international language in communications, science, business, aviation, entertainment, diplomacy and the Internet. It has been one of the official languages of the United Nations since its founding in 1945 and is considered by many to be the universal language.
In the past century, English has become an international language mostly because of the technology progress, but also thanks to their effort in the global peace. People have contacts with English every day, every hour, and every minute. Every product contains indications written in English, most of the computers we buy have operating systems in English, or made by English corporations.
We listen to English songs, we watch English TV programmes, we even express sometimes in English but, unfortunately, in unpolite ways. I can say that English is served to us. But in the most of the cases, pupils throw it away. We are offered the chance to learn an international language we can use it very much in our lives, and what do we do? We just kick it!
We can say that English surrounds us every day, but it's up to us to learn it because these days English is used almost everywhere. These days most of the good jobs require us to know a second language in the most of the cases English and ...
American English acquired international significance after World War II, when the United States assumed a more global role and political, economic and technological developments promoted American influence worldwide. American English currently asserts a dominant influence on "world English" (cf. British English) largely due to the following:
In a globalized world characterized by international links and intercultural connections, linguistic skills are crucial for employment and career. The knowledge of foreign languages increases job opportunities in many careers where knowing another language is a real asset.

Many "anti-globalization" activists see globalization as the promotion of a corporatist agenda, which is intent on constricting the freedoms of individuals in the name of profit. They also claim that the increasing autonomy and strength of corporate entities increasingly shapes the political policy of nation-states.

Impozit pe venit global
In Romania, politica fiscala a impus practicarea de cote diferentiate de impozit pe profit, functie de profilul activitatii desfasurate.Reglementarea principala in materie de impozit pe profit este O.G. nr 70/1994, modificata ulterior de mai multe ori, ultima modificare fiind O.U.G nr 217/1999.Colectarea trimestriala a impozitului pe profit a redus veniturile la bugetul statului si a permis societatilor sa-si mareasca cash-flowul. Pentru a nu mari deficitul bugetar, care influenteaza direct inflatia, s-a procedat la aplicarea de cote diferentiate de impozit pe profit.
O altă caracteristică o reprezintă intensificarea integrărilor regionale şi interregionale sau a globalizării unor fenomene economice.
Un alt exemplu, de acest fel, îl constituie noile deschideri pentru ţările din centrul şi estul Europei sau exemplul Hong-Kong-ului.
Asimetria profundă dintre nivelurile de dezvoltare ale statelor, situaţie specifică în care se află economia mondială contemporană, influenţează în mare măsură interdependenţele economice internaţionale. Datele statistice arată faptul că peste jumătate din populaţia globului (56,1%) se află în ţările cu economie subdezvoltată, în care PNB variază de la ţară la ţară între 90$ şi 499 $/locuitor şi acestea contribuie doar cu 8,5% la producţia mondială. Ţările dezvoltate, deşi reprezintă doar 18,7% din populaţia lumii, deţin peste 68% din producţia mondială .
Posibilitati de perfectionare a impozitului pe venitul global
Cotele de impunere reprezintă procentajele aplicate la sumele impozabile. Sumele obţinute de contribuabili se încadrează în tranşele de venit stabilite prin lege. În funcţie de tranşa în care se încadrează, veniturile respective se impozitează cu o anumită cotă de impunere.
