Yes I know, we in Western Europe love taxes :-) And this one I personally think it’s a great idea: The Robin Hood Tax.
The idea is simple. 0.05% tax on every financial transaction. Will be used for the battle against poverty and climate change.
“Small change for the banks, a big difference for the world.”
