This video is from the new campaign from Oxfam Germany. The script is bit forced but I find it also hilarious.
“What a difficult birth for such a small tax of 0.05% on all financial transactions! Best of all, used properly in the fight against global poverty and climate change, this little guy has the potential to change the world!”
It’s about the Robin Hood tax. The financial transaction tax is a sales tax of 0.05% on the trading of financial products such as stocks, bonds, currencies and derivatives.
A UK based global campaign for the Robin Hood tax was launched on 10 February 2010 and is being run by a coalition of over 50 charities and organizations, including Christian Aid, Comic Relief and UNICEF. [Wikipedia]
