The Robin Hood Tax: Turning a crisis for the banks into an opportunity for the world

As world leaders look for ways to ensure the financial sector contributes to the cost of bank bailouts and the recovery of the global economy, the team behind Make Poverty History has launched the ‘Robin Hood Tax’ campaign for a Financial Transaction Tax – which could raise billions every year.

Speakers: Professor Jeffrey Sachs, international economist and author of ‘The End of Poverty', Major Ivor Telfer, Assistant Secretary for Programme, Salvation Army; Dr. Claire Melamed, Head of Policy Coordination, ActionAid UK

Chair: Alan Beattie, World Trade Editor, FT

Richard Curtis, screenwriter and film director and Bill Nighy, actor, will present their film which launches a campaign for a tax on financial transactions.
