Mark Field: the Member for Tax Havens
Nick Shaxson mounts a robust defence of our position in the article (read on here), but we'd like to invite Mark Field to expand just a bit on what he means by "healthy tax competition". As we have argued for many, many years, tax competition is always harmful to public interest, always causes market distortions, always harms democracy, always serves the interests of rich people over poor.
Politicians have been allowed to get away with this nonsense about tax competition for far too long. Now we call on Mark Field to explain how tax competition delivers better goods and services to anyone, anywhere on the planet. We promise to publish his response in full.
