This week, French President François Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are meeting to discuss the economic situation in Europe. One of the items that will be discussed is the Financial Transactions Tax (or Robin Hood Tax).

PSI is calling on EU leaders to implement a broad-based financial transactions tax in order to fund vital public services and decent jobs necessary to end poverty and inequality, support sustainable development and address climate change.
