Economists and MEPs call for Tobin Tax

A letter from 350 leading economists including Joseph Stiglitz calls on the G20 countries to tax international financial transactions as a way of both reducing harmful currency speculation and to generate funds to help poorer countries.

This adds further weight to calls from some 850 international parliamentarians led by a group of Members of the European Parliament.

Civil society organisations in the UK have also launched a high-profile campaign to support what they are calling the "Robin Hood Tax"
