Since I am speaking at this event next Tuesday I trust I can be forgiven for promoting it:
New Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute (SPERI) -APPG event in Parliament | Corporation tax: a global race to the bottom?
Are we locked into a global ‘race to the bottom’ on tax? And 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.
On Tuesday 14 March SPERI will discuss these issues in Parliament at a joint event with the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Inclusive Growth and Oxfam. The event is the latest to be organised as part of SPERI’s new partnership with the APPG on Inclusive Growth.
A new research paper on ‘tax spillover’ by Professor Andrew Baker, who leads SPERI’s Financial, Monetary and Tax Futures research theme, and Professor Richard Murphy (City University) will be presented at the event by Andrew. The research paper will be published in advance.
Other speakers at the event will include:
- Meg Hillier MP, Chair of the House of Commons Public Accounts Committee
- Nicholas Shaxson, journalist, investigator and author of Treasure Islands: Tax Havens and the Men who Stole the World
- Tim Livesey, Oxfam Head of Government Relations
The event will take place between 18.30-20.00pm on Tuesday 14 March in the Wilson Room in Portcullis House, Parliament.
Places are free to book and you can register here. Please aim to arrive 15 minutes before the start of the event to allow time to pass through security at Portcullis House.
