Goldman Sachs faces Robin Hood Tax vote-rigging claims

I am clearly still not sufficiently cynical: as one of the founding organisations of the Robin Hood Tax I’ve done my best to promote it and am watching the Yes / No vote on their site. Hence I was amazed to see the increase of NOs and appreciated the way that those at the helm responded.

Now I’m glad to see that they not only identified the tracks back to Goldman Sachs but also informed the media.

Here’s the article in the Daily Telegraph.

However, German Radio reported that Italy wants to introduce the Robin Hood Tax – albeit in 2008, and by taxing the oil industry! Bellissimo!!!
