This panel will discuss recently enacted and proposed financial transaction taxes in Europe, including France's new tax on high frequency orders, as well as the potential for some form of financial transactions tax in the United States. The panel will consider the various rationales advanced for the tax, the scope of the current proposals, and the potential consequences of the tax, both intended and unintended.
This luncheon program is sponsored by the Financial Products Committee of the Taxation Section.
