International Tax Extravaganza!

NEW today: In @ForeignAffairs magazine, @JosephEStiglitz @gabriel_zucman and I call for a New Deal on international taxation to rein in the nefarious influence that the Top 1% are having on our economies/democracies. And we have other goodies to share!👇 (foreignaffairs.com/articles/unite…)

Over at @rooseveltinst, we have a blog symposium about how we got to where we are on international tax rules. I kick it off with the history of how domestic racism and conservative courts set the US on a trajectory that makes tax reform harder. (rooseveltinstitute.org/how-the-tax-di…) Next up, @phdskat and @martinhearson discuss the state of the debate over digital taxation, where the US and Europe are at each other throats and most of the planet seems left behind. (rooseveltinstitute.org/the-future-of-…) Then, Valpy FitzGerald and @Jayati1609 — both commissioners of the prestigious @icrict group on international taxation — discuss the ins and outs of corporate taxation talks at the OECD. (H/t @FaccioTommaso) (rooseveltinstitute.org/corporate-tax-…)

That’s a lot about how international taxation rulemaking isn’t working towards equity. So, in a final contribution, @martinhearson and I have a new @rooseveltinst working paper on what it is working towards: incremental erosion of sovereignty. (rooseveltinstitute.org/an-unacceptabl…)
