Sunday Meeting - Tax and Social Justice: If They Are Related How Best Can We Act?
Dr. Anne Klaeysen Presides
What can be done to ensure that our financial institutions and multi-national companies are not above the law?
Why do these groups use tax havens so extensively and is such use in the public interest? Is our legislative structure adapted to the interests or needs of these groups? To what extent are the developed nations, US included, part of a system that deprives both rich and poor nations of much needed tax revenues? If tax and social justice are related, can some remedial steps be taken? Some of these challenges will be addressed during the talk.
