Reviews


?"The Great Revenue Robbery" is a rallying cry for a just society. Special-interest lobbying has hollowed out the tax system. Corporations and wealthy elites have shifted their wealth and income to tax havens, and the mainstream media have polluted democratic politics with a trenchantly anti-tax agenda. This book explores this attack on tax and identifies potential progressive counterattacks, for example through financial transaction taxes, environmental taxes, and tackling tax havens. As the climate and economic crises deepen, the case for progressive taxes becomes more compelling by the day. Aux armes citoyens!?
-John Christensen, director, Tax Justice Network

?Over the past thirty years the prevailing neo-liberal ideology has framed taxes as fundamentally illegitimate. In exposing this big lie, "The Great Revenue Robbery" compellingly demonstrates the crucial and varied role of taxes in a flourishing democracy. If you want to understand what went wrong in Canadian public policy and how it can be fixed, you should read this book.?
-Neil Brooks, professor of tax law and co-author of "The Trouble with Billionaires"
?For decades, the right has flooded the airwaves and taken over the political podiums with its anti-tax hysteria. But Canadians are waking up to the simple truth that taxes are the price we pay for civilization, and that scrimping on taxes means scrimping on civilization. This collection of compelling essays deconstructs the misinformation spewing out of right-wing think tanks and media outlets, and reminds us that a far better social order is tantalizingly within reach.?
-Linda McQuaig, author and journalist

?This is a welcome critique of conventional economic wisdom. If you thought tax cuts would solve all of your problems, read "The Great Revenue Robbery" and think again.?
-Thomas Walkom, political columnist, Toronto Star
