Social Game Proposal

The 7th Annual Global Trade Expo comprising of an Investment Seminar, Business Expo and Venture Funding Exhibition being held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, California, USA, which is to be held on the 8th of September, 2012. This historic event is only months after US president Barack Obama issued a statement proclaiming that building a strategic partnership with Asia is a top priority, and that Asia is a strategic ally of US in the 21st Century. In this spirit we extend this effort to promote opportunity, peace and prosperity to the rest of the world as well. The US Asia Business Forum (USABF) and the ‘US Global Business Forum’ (USGBF), is a platform established by the leaders of the vast American populace with the objective of promoting trade, commerce, investments, and joint ventures between the various continents with the focus on US and the entire globe. USABF & USGBF strives to bring together business leaders, diplomats, governments, trade organizations, and development organizations onto one platform by organizing trade and investment exhibitions in various locations across the globe. By initiating multilateral visits to various countries and facilitating new investments, ventures, and trade, the expansive resources of the world are brought together seamlessly, through the US Global Business Forum. The USABF & USGBF is committed to social and community development, especially in the areas of education, healthcare, empowering social, and child development through the networks of local NGO’s and international foundations. The US, with a GDP of more than $14 trillion (roughly 30% of the worlds GDP) is the economic and business power house of the world maintaining a higher per capita output and income than any other country. The US attracts the best talent in the world by propagating freedom, democracy, competition and cooperation through offering avenues in global research and development, International trade, and venture funding. Refreshments, cocktails, and hors d'oeuvres will be served. A special Honorary four-course dinner with former President Bill Clinton and many other world leaders is scheduled following the event at 9pm, where a discussion will be held about the future of the global economy. Additionally, we will be discussing the pace of global economic growth as well as breakthrough solutions for achieving global prosperity for all. For a limited time, these exclusive tickets may be purchased until VIP seats run out. We look forward to having you there while we advance Global Peace Through Global Trade. FOR FULL EVENT DETAILS AND LIST OF SPEAKERS, SPONSORS, AFFILIATES AND ATTENDEES, YOU MAY EMAIL: From and partners Everyone knows that there is immense financial opportunity on the internet. But do you know where that opportunity is? How many of you have made money on internet stocks... like Google, or Mac, or Amazon? How much did you make, 100k? a million? two million? That is not a bad return, but how would you like the opportunity to make 100’s of millions or billions very year? That’s a little more interesting isn’t it? I have a company that is set up to do just that. We design and develop mobile apps, and games; and we have found a gold mine in the emergence of gaming within the Facebook platform. We are following in the steps of companies like Zynga, and Electronics Arts who are already grossing over 1 billion a year ; companies who have seen the trend, and made the jumped into this exciting new frontier. As you can see from my bio, I have been a software developer for 15 years, my peers are the innovators of companies like Google, Amazon and Facebook . I am the CTO of a software consulting firm based in Las Vegas, and I partner with two development and design companies in Argentina, where I am originally from. I have watched the trends on the internet, and have ridden those trends with a great deal of success. A few years ago, I was involved in the huge online auction trend, and was about to launch a very unique penny auction software when I was literally stopped in my tracks by what I knew would be the next mega internet trend... Facebook. When I mention Facebook, 98% of people immediately think about Facebook friends, pages, walls, and social media; but I want to open yours eyes to a phenomenon called Social Gaming, and the 3 billion dollar industry that has evolved from it. Today everything is about Facebook, and the metrics within Facebook or any internet site for that matter is measured in the number of monthly users it has. The more visitors it has, the more opportunity it has to make money; just like any traditional business. With 160 m monthly users in US and 800 worldwide; Facebook is the new frontier and a proverbial gold mine. That’s why companies like EA, known for making games, quickly switched their focus to making games within the very fertile Facebook environment; which increased their earning astronomically. I am sure you have all gotten requests from your facebook friends to play games like Mafia Wars, and Farmville...they are free to play of course, but did you know that people spend REAL dollars within these games on things like virtual guns for a virtual mob hit, or virtual feed for their virtual cow? It’s hard to believe right? It sounds pretty ridiculous; and yet Zynga is laughing all the to the bank to the tune of 1,6 billion dollars per year. I’m not a trend setter, I am a trend follower and I am very vested in this extremely profitable one. We launched a game for Facebook just a few months ago called Racetown which in it’s infancy has over 800k monthly users and nets over $40,000.00 per month. We also have slot and casino games that skin (or re-design the graphic for you laymen) and license to casinos, celebrities, virtually any brand. But can you imagine what users would do if: - you could combine the adrenaline rush of gambling ( like with these casino games) -with the competitive fun of online auctions (like Ebay, or now the very popular penny auction call - put it into Facebook so you could invite your friends to play with you - and then instead of racking up virtual winnings, had the top of the line, most popular retail items shipped to your door when you won??? Welcome to Ibid ville! The very first “Interactive Auction” game. It is the first game within facebook where the player wins actual prizes. It utilizes 4 patent pending systems to make the game viral, engaging, and very profitable, and addictive :-). Yes it is exciting to work in an industry that moves so fast. Right now all the games within Facebook make more than 3 billion dollars a year. And even though, Mark Zukenberg wised up at the beginning of the year and started taking 30 percent of this gaming revenue by implementing the Facebook credit system; I can guarantee that you will never be able to make as much money from purchasing stocks in Facebook, than investing in a company making games for Facebook! Not to mention all of the perks that you get if you happen to be a foreigner, when you invest in a company in America. Social Media Gaming is the current billion dollar trend... are you going to play in the game or sit on the sidelines and watch? I am Martin Vincent, creator of Ibidville, we are playing in a big game and right now we are open to the right partner who is ready to play with us. Sponsor me. thank you.

This article gives a brief overview of the agreements and should be of particular interest to multinational companies and to people who work abroad during their careers. International Social Security agreements, often called "Totalization agreements," have two main purposes. First, they eliminate dual Social Security taxation, the situation that occurs when a worker from one country works in another country and is required to pay Social Security taxes to both countries on the same earnings. Second, the agreements help fill gaps in benefit protection for workers who have divided their careers between the United States and another country. Agreements to coordinate Social Security protection across national boundaries have been common in Western Europe for decades. Following is a list of the agreements the United States has concluded and the date of the entry into force of each. Some of these agreements were subsequently revised; the date shown is the date the original agreement entered into force. Countries with Social Security Agreements Country Entry into Force Italy November 1, 1978 Germany December 1, 1979 Switzerland November 1, 1980 Belgium July 1, 1984 Norway July 1, 1984 Canada August 1, 1984 United Kingdom January 1, 1985 Sweden January 1, 1987 Spain April 1, 1988 France July 1, 1988 Portugal August 1, 1989 Netherlands November 1, 1990 Austria November 1, 1991 Finland November 1, 1992 Ireland September 1, 1993 Luxembourg November 1, 1993 Greece September 1, 1994 South Korea April 1, 2001 Chile December 1, 2001 Australia October 1, 2002 Japan October 1, 2005 Denmark October 1, 2008 Czech Republic January 1, 2009 Poland March 1, 2009 Dual Coverage Without some means of coordinating Social Security coverage, people who work outside their country of origin may find themselves covered under the systems of two countries simultaneously for the same work. When this happens, both countries generally require the employer and employee or self-employed person to pay Social Security taxes. Dual Social Security tax liability is a widespread problem for U.S. multinational companies and their employees because the U.S. Social Security program covers expatriate workers--those coming to the United States and those going abroad--to a greater extent than the programs of most other countries. U.S. Social Security extends to American citizens and U.S. resident aliens employed abroad by American employers without regard to the duration of an employee's foreign assignment, and even if the employee has been hired abroad. This extraterritorial U.S. coverage frequently results in dual tax liability for the employer and employee since most countries, as a rule, impose Social Security contributions on anyone working in their territory. Dual tax liability can also affect U.S. citizens and residents working for foreign affiliates of American companies. This is likely to be the case when a U.S. firm has followed the common practice of entering into an agreement with the Department of the Treasury pursuant to section 3121(l) of the Internal Revenue Code to provide Social Security coverage for U.S. citizens and residents employed by the affiliate. In addition, U.S. citizens and residents who are self-employed outside the United States are often subject to dual Social Security tax liability since they remain covered under the U.S. program even if they maintain no business operations in the United States. Other features of U.S. law increase the odds that foreign workers in the United States will also face dual coverage. U.S. law provides compulsory Social Security coverage for services performed in the United States as an employee, regardless of the citizenship or country of residence of the employee or employer, and irrespective of the length of time the employee stays in the United States. Unlike many other countries, the United States generally does not provide coverage exemptions for nonresident alien employees or for employees who have been sent to work within its borders for short periods. For this reason, most foreign workers in the United States are covered under the U.S. program. Paying dual Social Security contributions is especially costly for companies that offer "tax equalization" arrangements for their expatriate employees. A firm that sends an employee to work in another country often guarantees that the assignment will not result in a reduction of the employee's after-tax income. Employers with tax equalization programs, therefore, typically agree to pay both the employer and employee share of host country Social Security taxes on behalf of their transferred employees. Under the tax laws of many countries, however, an employer's payment of an employee's share of a Social Security contribution is considered to be taxable compensation to the employee, thus increasing the employee's income tax liability. The tax equalization arrangement generally provides that the employer will also pay this additional income tax, which in turn serves to increase the employee's taxable income and tax liability even further. The employer again pays the additional tax, etc., etc. As one can readily see, the employee's foreign Social Security coverage results in a substantially greater tax burden for the employer than the nominal Social Security tax alone. Depending on the other country's tax rates, in some countries this "pyramid" effect has been known to increase an employer's foreign Social Security costs to as much as 65-70 percent of the employee's salary, as illustrated below.
