Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 1318 ~ 18 February 1998
Increasing numbers of proposals are being made these days for world taxes:
- a world tax on the colossal international financial transactions which escape all governmental control;
- a world tax on tourism and trade;
- a world tax on multimillionaires and billionaires.
It would be quite normal that since the UN has opened the world to trade and tourism, such a tax should be levied on their beneficiaries.
It reminds me that years ago, Professor Jan Tinbergen, Nobel Prize winner in economics, a staunch advocate of the United Nations and proper world government said that poor countries should levy a tax on undesirable imports, e.g. tobacco products and alcohol, to improve the health of their people and finance the UN.
This would stop the complaint of the big countries that they carry the main "burden" of the UN, and as result exercise constant pressure on the world organization.
I think that the time has come to establish a World Commission of Eminent Personalities on World Taxation and Finance.
