Promoting a Global Tax

October 21, 2010

Today the South Korean government announced it was looking at the possibility of implementing a Tobin Tax, and only a few weeks ago at the African Union Summit in Budapest, it was recommended that a Tobin Tax be levied across the African continent.

What is the Tobin Tax? It’s a charge placed on international currency transactions, and it has the potential to raise enormous amounts of wealth. Who would receive the financial benefits from this tax? The international financial community.

For Canadians, most don’t know that our parliament already passed the Tobin Tax over a decade ago. The reason for the tax? Back in the day those pursuing the Tobin tax were very open about the end goal: To finance a world government.

You need to know more about this global tax agenda, which is being bantered about on the heels of the next G20 summit this coming November. In order to help you wrestle through this, Forcing Change has placed a free, sample issue on its homepage (www.forcingchange.org) that directly speaks to this development.

Go to the Forcing Change site today and download Issue 1, Volume 8. You’ll find it on the right-hand side of the page.
