Fabian Society pamphlet launch – ‘A Unique Contribution’

Event starts:

13 June 2016, 18.30-20.00 | Committee Room 10, House of Commons, London SW1A 0AA

We are delighted to invite you to the launch of a new Fabian Society and Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung report ‘A Unique Contribution’, by Nick Donovan, with a foreword by Dan Jarvis MP. The report proposes a one-off levy on the passive wealth of the super-rich and takes a more stringent approach with those who have used tax havens or domestic tax avoidance schemes. Revenue would be used to reduce the deficit, thereby easing pressure on spending cuts and taxes on income and earnings. Crucially, it would also reduce spiraling inequality, and ensure all citizens can be equal participants in public life.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Catherine Colebrook (chief economist, IPPR)
  • Nick Donovan (campaign director, Global Witness)
  • Stefan Bach (research associate, German Institute for Economic Research)
  • Polly Toynbee (the Guardian)
