Who is really surprised at the scale of tax evasion revealed by the Paradise Papers?

As the name suggests, the basic dynamic of our economic system relies on capital accumulation, through the pursuit of private profits. The theory goes that this dynamic will work for the greater public good. An extreme form of the (unproven) "trickle-down" dynamic was successfully promoted as a way out of the productivity and growth crisis of the 1970s. Wealth was transferred from public balance sheets to corporations, private investors and financial markets. All controls on capital movements were removed and governments had to enter into tax competition to attract the – now free – capital that creates jobs, production and income tax for them.

Tax evasion is no longer the occasional failure of an otherwise efficient tax system as it was seen before; it is in reality a global business conducted on a global scale by lawyers and bankers with the highest reputations.

In Short

Bonsai-FTT

Immediately after Macron’s victory in the presidential elections, his finance minister asked for a suspension of the negotiations over the Financial Transaction Tax (FTT) in order to “become acquainted with the matter.” Today, if an FTT is approved at all, it seems that we’ll get a bonsai-FTT, watered down to the size of the Stamp Duty.
