Brazil’s tax system is notoriously complex and unpredictable, leading to enormous compliance costs and massive tax contingencies. With pension reform nearing completion, tax reform is the next major item on the Government’s path to economic reform.

Join us for a panel discussion that will identify the key issues behind Brazil’s tax complexity, and why tax reform is so necessary. The panel will review the laws and constitutional amendments being proposed, including differences in the proposals of Congress and the Bolsonaro administration. Finally, the panel will consider the corporate viewpoint of Brazilian taxes and tax reform as well as the key political factors behind the expected timing and ultimate shape of the reforms.

Our First-Ever Connected TV Ad Forecast; Culture Clash on Facial Recognition; Netflix Posts Solid Growth
First, we take a look at the culture clash taking place between China and the West regarding facial recognition technology.
Consumers’ use and acceptance of biometric technology—especially facial recognition—varies widely, depending on which part of the world you’re in.
In the US and many parts of the West, facial recognition systems—including those from Apple, Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Facebook—have sparked intense consumer debate and are under heavy fire from privacy advocates for their ability to scan people’s faces and identify them without their consent.
Legal challenges, including high-profile lawsuits against these tech giants, make headlines almost daily, and have already forced some companies to reverse course. In June 2019, Microsoft quietly deleted a massive online data set that contained more than 10 million images of 100,000 individuals that was used to train other companies’ facial recognition systems.
