Oxfam International’s From Poverty to Power blog has a great piece, today, on why the stars may be lining up for the a Financial Transaction Tax. I won’t say anything else about it, save that you should absolutely read it. Particularly if you worry about where the money is going to come from to fund what they used to call “social progress.” Such as, you know, climate adaptation. Especially now that the elites have decided to hide under their austerity blanket. But don’t get too optimistic. When little Timmy Geithner was in Europe last week, he went out of this way to oppose the FTT. See, for example, here.
