Richard Murphy: tax justice activist & real world economist

The tax justice movement has changed the way people think about global capital, accountancy and tax. Richard has been in the forefront of this. He co-founded the Tax Justice Network, created country-by-country reporting (that is used to hold multinationals to account) and helped re-define tax havens as secrecy jurisdictions (helping focus the global challenge to their activity). He also added tax into the original 2008 Green New Deal.

Points

Excellent communicator and teacher

I wish some of these kinds of people and organizations would refer to the proposal for incentive taxation as proposed as the Single Tax on land values, by Henry George in his classic book "Progress and Poverty" of 1879. Because they don't do this their do-gooding efforts are so ineffective.

Entertaining speaker. Concise writer on wide-ranging topics.

Erudite champion of MMT and Green New Deal. Richard Murphy is a highly regarded.
