Globalization, Taxes and Inequality

Lecture by Gabriel Zucman, University of California, Berkeley.

Globalization facilitates tax avoidance for multinational firms and wealthy individuals. This has triggered a widespread perception that the international tax system is broken and that globalization in its current form is socially unjust.

In this lecture, Gabriel Zucman presents recent research on how tax avoidance redistributes income between nations and between social groups and discusses policies that could potentially make globalization more socially and politically sustainable.
