New book from Smart Taxes: The Fair Tax – supported by history, agreed by economists, feared by the 1%

Ireland is unusual among industrialised countries in that it has no property tax. But that is about to change - and the type of property tax that is brought in will be crucial to Ireland's future. This new book from the Smart Taxes Network and Feasta explains how a poorly-designed property tax could bring about a second massive transfer of wealth from the 99% to the 1%. A Site Value Tax would be vastly preferable, and the book convincingly shows how easy it would be to assess and implement.
