Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS)
by Olesya Kazantseva, 2015
Closing tax havens, ending tax competition, and prohibiting profit-shifting are necessary for a fair tax system. The richest 1% in Pennsylvania could receive another $3 billion from Trump’s tax scam! Democracy is different than plutocracy. Problems do not disappear when they are ignored or repressed as fake populists and lies must be overcome with truth-tellers and sharing wealth.
Only radical change can avert egoism replacing solidarity. The state should serve the public interest and yet private or special interests are often in the driver’s seat.
