Corporation Tax: A Global Race to the Bottom?
Tue 14 March 2017, 18:30 – 20:00 GMT
Are we locked into a global race to the bottom on tax? What does this mean for inclusive growth?
Concerns are growing that corporate tax cuts in the developed world are triggering a race to the bottom on corporation tax cuts in the developing world ‒ and the issue is quickly rising up the political agenda.
Join us on March 14th at an event organised by the APPG on Inclusive Growth and Oxfam to discuss this important issue and hear from leading tax campaigners, researchers and politicians. New research by the Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute (SPERI) on global tax regulations and the ‘spillover effect’ of corporate tax cuts will be presented at the event.
