Tobin Tax" Andrew Simms, Steve Tibbett, Emily Willmott argue that a tax on currency transactions could both stabilise the world economy and provide resources to tackle the UN's development targets by 2015. "The Robin Hood Tax" is published by War on Want and the New Economics Foundation. In another useful paper Heikki Patomäki, hoping to allay fears that without almost utopian co-operation between nation states the tax will remain a pipe dream, lays out a two step programme for the introduction of the Tobin Tax. "The Tobin Tax: How to Make it Real. Towards a Socially Responsible and Democratic System of Global Governance" is published by the Finnish Institute of International Affairs.
