“When Financial Transaction Tax was initially proposed by James Tobin in the early 1970s it seemed unlikely that the plans would materialise. However, current proposals which would see a 0.1% levy on trading shares and bonds and a 0.01% tax on derivatives have been welcomed by 11 countries in the European Union.
The debate will look at the implications and likelihood of imposing Financial Transaction Tax in the UK.
This event is open to both members of the Law Society and the public. This debate is recommended for anyone interested in the debate topic, including:
