      AD urges MP s to support Tobin Tax proposal
       
      Aletrnattiva Demokratika-The Green Party urges Maltese MP's to join many of their European and world counterparts in asking their respective legislative bodies and governments to support the Tobin tax proposal and ask the government to support its implementation at an international level.

       
      "The Tobin tax, named after the American economics Nobel prize winner.  James Tobin proposed, in 1978 to tax, at a low rate, all the transactions on the currency markets in order to discourage speculation and, at the same time, provide the internationa community with resources. With a rate of 0.05% the Tobin tax is estimated to bring in more than 100 billion dollars per year, which could be utilized for currency stabilization, economic development, emergency relief, or other national and international crises like the present one in Argentina", said AD-the Green Party's international secretary Ralph Cassar.

      The campaign for the introduction of the Tobin Tax is supported by numerous civil society and non-governmental organizations, linked with trade unions, social, ecumenical, and environmental causes.  The European Greens are at the forefront of this campaign.
       
      "AD believes in a globalisation based on democracy, sustainable development and social justice.  The Tobin Tax is an important step in this direction", said Ralph Cassar.
