Global Taxes

Global Taxes" Want to know more about proposals for an international Carbon tax, a Tobin tax or even a bit tax?

"Global Taxes for Global Priorities" by James Paul and Katarina Wahlberg explores the details, rationale and arguments surrounding each of the major international tax proposals. Published by the Global Policy Forum.

Value Added Taxation

Value Added Taxation" Since the 1960s VAT has been introduced in over 100 countries. Basically, the VAT is a revenue workhorse. Properly designed and administered, it can raise more revenue with lower operational and economic costs than can other broadly based consumption taxes. The danger is, of course, that the VAT becomes over-used in the sense that it contributes to the maintenance of an oversized, inefficient public sector. If poorly administered, moreover, the VAT may degenerate into a highly distortionary, multistage cumulative turnover tax that hampers specialization and hence economic growth. "Global trends and issues in value added taxation" is published by the Research Centre for Economic Policy.

Tobin Tax

Tobin Tax" Andrew Simms, Steve Tibbett, Emily Willmott argue that a tax on currency transactions could both stabilise the world economy and provide resources to tackle the UN's development targets by 2015. "The Robin Hood Tax" is published by War on Want and the New Economics Foundation. In another useful paper Heikki Patomäki, hoping to allay fears that without almost utopian co-operation between nation states the tax will remain a pipe dream, lays out a two step programme for the introduction of the Tobin Tax. "The Tobin Tax: How to Make it Real. Towards a Socially Responsible and Democratic System of Global Governance" is published by the Finnish Institute of International Affairs.
