Hungry for a bit more detail?

This bibliography includes 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.

Plus there's new research carried out by our parent organisation Stamp Out Poverty on the impact of the climate crisis. We're fighting to fund people affected with our campaign to #MakePollutersPay
