The Robin Hood Tax
The Robin Hood Tax (based on the Tobin Tax) would be a tiny tax on bankers that would give billions to tackle poverty and climate change, here and abroad. It sounds complicated, but actually it isn’t. A tiny tax on bankers has the power to raise hundreds of billions every year – giving a vital boost to the NHS, our schools, and the fight against child poverty – as well as tackling poverty and climate change around the world.
See the campaign's fine web-site here. Don't miss the video. Then move on to this video.
Not complicated. Just brilliant.
Here are the campaign's supporters, plus rapidly growing numbers of individuals such as myself.
