    review The Joy of Tax 103 The Joy of TaxBenjamin Franklin once wrote ‘in this world nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes’ I would add ‘and your computer crashing’ to that but the sentiment is still valid Richard Murphy has been a voracious campaigner on all things tax creator of ‘Co

    review The Joy of Tax 103 The Joy of TaxIt's a shame that the publishers chose not to replicate the green ink in which this book was clearly written And rather tempting to misuote a uote itself misattributed to Samuel Johnson The policy prescriptions in this book are stimulating and sensible But what is stimulating is not sensible what is sensible is not stimulating Murphy has many sensible things to say about what a tax system is designed to achieve But I don't think his principles are as contentious as he hims

    review The Joy of Tax 103 The Joy of TaxBanks work in a very simple way People deposit money and the bank lends it out Assuming that the depositors don’t all come calling at the same time no one reality notices that their money isn’t really in the bank but is being spent on a new conservatory by someone they have never met Ever since the advent of the cheue it has been possible for banks to actually lend out far money than they ever held Simply put if your money exists only on an electronic balance sheet a bank can create money by crediting one side of the balance sheet with slightly larger numbers This leveraging has been going on for a long time and was in part responsible for the collapse or near collapse of a good number of banks in 20078 Deposi

    review The Joy of Tax 103 The Joy of TaxBorrowed this from the library to see why a local politician might have purchased it on his gov credit card and then had to reimburse the cost along with an other £12000 also spent for personal things Also the title intrigued me I confess to know little about tax and can see from other comments that there are conflicting thoughts as to whether the ideas are correct or not That aside it was written simply enough for the uneducated to understand for the most part with some radical ideas on how tax should be applied uite left of centre I think though I have no problems with taxing the wealthy or putting tax havens out of business even though I live in oneThe author does like to blow his own trumpet at times which I found a little grating and the final imaginary budget speech was a bit boring as it was a rec

    review The Joy of Tax 103 The Joy of TaxI followed Richard Murphy’s work a few years ago due to an interest in his work regarding tax evasion and tax avoidance It was very interesting to see an accountant and activists writing important reports which were then debated in the European Parliament So when I saw this in a bookshop in Cardiff I bought it The book makes some very important and prescient points about tax and money creation However Mr Murphy makes a conceptual leap regarding tax and assumes far too much about the relationship between tax the state and culture He infers based upon the British context and then applied it to European and global ethics and policy ‘’Tax and ethics and morality are inextricably linked’’ p123 Really He clearly has not studied the culture and tax levels in Japan and other low tax moral societies I found many of his assumptions and arguments tenuous in particular about the relationship between paying tax and voter turnout On the other hand some of his conclusions are ui
