Revisiting the Tobin Tax, in the Context of Development and the Financial Crisis
In the climate of a global financial crisis the problem of financial stability is particularly potent, especially given the difficulties faced around the world in both developed and developing countries. A defence for future crises alongside a means of improving global development problems could possibly be found in the oft-debated Tobin tax. Furthermore, it is shown that the possibilities for global improvement as a result of such a move are too important to be disregarded without proper consideration. As a result of extensive research of the arguments surrounding the tax, it is suggested that the time is ripe for a re-evaluation of Professor Tobin's suggestion.
