Abstract

This paper seeks to evaluate the strength of the case for a financial transactions tax, judged against the three rationales which have been proposed for such a tax: the excessive volume of short-term foreign exchange transactions and their effects on exchange rate volatility; the revenue-raising potential of the tax; and the possible enhancement of the autonomy of national economic policy to which it might lead.
