Since 2009, billions of dollars have been mobilized for bank bailouts to save the financial system. The economic crisis that was caused by the reckless gambling of the banks is now affecting poor people at home and abroad. Millions of men and women have lost their jobs, people all over the world have been plunged further into poverty and a hundred million more people are hungry today.
A Financial Transaction Tax could help mitigate this situation and turn a crisis for the banks into an opportunity for the world.
