Following the publication of our study The Impact of a Financial Transaction Tax (FTT) on Corporate and Sovereign Debt (available here), London Economics presented key findings to attachés and Ministry of Finance officials in Brussels on 15 April 2013 in order to inform debate during the Council FTT working group meeting the following day. The key objective of the presentation was to focus the debate on the potential costs to the real economy arising due to the current form of the proposed EU transactions tax.
