VIDEO: Corporate Taxes and Austerity in the UK

See Alex Cobham (Tax Justice Network) discuss how taxes and austerity interact in the UK

Aug 08, 2017

This week we follow up on our post from a few weeks ago from Alex Cobham, Director of the Tax Justice Network (TJN) in the UK. The presentation is a kind of 'outline' to the full talk Alex's presented at our 2016 workshop, in which he goes into depth on the particular pattern of UK corporate tax policy, its relationship to austerity, and its consequences as a form of industrial strategy and on the capacity of the state.

You can find the video on our Media Page, and we'll release the full paper from Alex in the coming weeks.

To see more from Alex, follow him on twitter @alexcobham. You can learn more about the TJN at

We'll post new content every Tuesday morning and our AltAusterity Digest Friday mornings. To keep up with our work, you can subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on Twitter @AltAusterity and join the #altausterity conversation!
