NZ coalition needed to capitalise on rising international profile of FTTs

Momentum is building for a Financial Transaction Tax (FTT) in Europe that targets banks, speculators and big corporates. See Europe Taking Lead on Speculations Tax (1 July 2011).

The growing international profile of FTTs will open up space for the political debate in New Zealand, if there's a corresponding grassroots campaign in place. Unions, the Greens, Mana Party, the Alliance,, Oxfam, and other organisations, could together make this happen.
