Policy Library

For those of you hungry for a bit more detail we have brought together the following bibliography. It includes the latest groundbreaking reports from the European Commission and IMF outlining how the financial sector can and should pay more. Technical arguments, rates and revenue estimates and feasibility are dealt with by academic heavy-weights such as Stiglitz. Our own campaign research shows how dozens of FTTs are already in existence around the world and we go right back to 1978 when James Tobin first published his seminal paper on a currency transaction tax.
