Mr Hockey, I say its time the worlds banks, hedge funds, corporations and stock market speculators paid a tiny and affordable levy on every international financial transaction they make.
Society can benefit from gaining a tiny share of the multiple billions of dollars of international financial transactions made every second. This levy can fund health, education and other services for our society.
How about some small bank finance reform, like the Robin Hood Tax. Its simple, fair, hard to avoid, and as a levy only on international financial transactions, it won’t cost us poor people anything.
