Patomeki’s book serves as a primer explaining and demystifying question of money, finance and taxes in the global economy today. Because it is so clearly written, it will be equally useful for the general reader as well as for specialists. The Tobin tax is a proposed tax on international currency transactions that would render much speculative movement of funds unprofitable and the world financial system less volatile. The author argues that the power of the global financial markets to undermine economic policies, production and employment has grown rapidly, while also transferring accountability away from national legislatures. The Tobin tax would shift globalization towards more democratic control, social responsibility and justice.
