Bill Moyers interviews Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz: “Let’s stop subsidising tax dodgers”

“Let’s stop subsidising tax dodgers” is the conclusion reached by Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz in a report for the Roosevelt Institute. He suggests that paying our fair share of taxes and cracking down on corporate tax dodgers could be a cure for inequality and a faltering economy.

Speaking about this report on the Moyers & Company show, a weekly series of smart talk and new ideas led by Bill Moyers, Stiglitz discusses why America’s future prosperity depends on tax reform today. He argues that Apple, Google, GE and a host of other Fortune 500 companies are creating what amounts to “an unlimited IRA for corporations.” The result? Vast amounts of lost revenue for our treasury and the exporting of much-needed jobs to other countries.

“I think we can use our tax system to create a better society, to be an expression of our true values,” Stiglitz says. “But if people don’t think that their tax system is fair, they’re not going to want to contribute. It’s going to be difficult to get them to pay. And, unfortunately, right now, our tax system is neither fair nor efficient.”

Joseph Stiglitz: “The Real Cost of America’s Wars”

Joseph Stiglitz speaker - "The Real Cost of America's Wars"After nearly 12 years, the US is readying itself for withdrawal from Afghanistan. However, Joseph Stiglitz believes that “there will be little in the way of a peace dividend for the US economy once the fighting stops”, as he discusses the real cost of America’s wars.

The US has already borrowed $2tn to finance the Afghanistan and Iraq wars – a major component of the $9tn debt the country has amassed since 2001, along with those arising from the financial crisis and the tax cuts implemented by President George W. Bush. However, withdrawal will not have a rejuvenative effect on America’s continuingly embattled economy.

“It could have been hoped that the ending of the wars would provide a large peace dividend, such as the one resulting from the end of the cold war that helped us to invest more in butter and less in guns,” Stiglitz says. “Instead, the legacy of poor decision-making from the expensive wars in Afghanistan and Iraq will live on in a continued drain on the US economy – long after the last troop returns to American soil.” In Stiglitz’ lastest must-see piece, he sets out exactly why a positive and/or a basic reduction in spending should not be anticipated.
