$43.00 plus tax (Refund Policy)

Abstract:

TAX REVENUES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT AND THE SOCIAL CONTRACT, BUT THE MAJORITY OF MULTINATIONAL BUSINESSES HAVE BEEN STRUCTURED SO AS TO ENABLE TAX AVOIDANCE IN EVERY JURISDICTION IN WHICH THEY OPERATE. JOHN CHRISTENSEN AND RICHARD MURPHY OF THE TAX JUSTICE NETWORK ARGUE THAT POLICY MEASURES ARE REQUIRED TO REDRESS THE DISTORTIONS THAT HAVE ARISEN AS GLOBALIZED COMPANIES HAVE LEFT NATIONALLY BASED TAX REGIMES FLOUNDERING. BUSINESSES SHOULD ADOPT CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY STANDARDS ON TAXATION, INCLUDING REQUIREMENTS TO PUBLISH ALL NECESSARY ACCOUNTING INFORMATION AND TO REFRAIN FROM THE USE OF PROFITS-LAUNDERING VEHICLES CREATED WITHOUT SUBSTANTIAL ECONOMIC PURPOSE.:Development (2004) 47, 37–44. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100066
