Macron is right - the Eurozone needs a finance minister. [...] it focuses on the essential: a collective action mechanism for managing and stabilising economies in crisis. It also does so without the need for EU Treaty changes

Richard N. Cooper, American economist, policy adviser, and academic · 10 Sep 2017

agrees Carbon Tax
Levying a charge on CO2 raises the price of CO2-emitting activities,including fossil fuel use, and thus is the most direct method of influencing consumer and industrial behavior on a world-wide scale.

William Gale, · 10 Sep 2017

agrees Carbon Tax
The basic rationale for a carbon tax is that it makes good economic sense: unlike most taxes, carbon taxation can correct a market failure and make the economy more efficient.

Alan Blinder, Economist · 10 Sep 2017

agrees Carbon Tax
The 'bang for the buck' from a phased-in CO2 levy would be infinite at first—lots of jobs at zero cost to the federal budget.

Robert Shapiro, Chairman of economic advisory firm Sonecon, IMF advisor, former U.S. Under Secretary of Commerce. Bl · 10 Sep 2017

agrees Carbon Tax
The risks of climate change continue to grow. Global, harmonized net carbon taxes could contain those risk s in an economically-efficient and politically-feasible way.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr, American radio host, environmental activist, author and attorney specializing in environmental law · 06 Sep 2017

disagrees Vaccines
None of the vaccines have more than a few months of double-blind placebo testing, which will not allow you to spot illnesses like autism that aren’t diagnosed before five years. Second of all, in most vaccines, for example the Gardasil vaccine, they don’t use true placebos.

Thomas Piketty, · 06 Sep 2017

disagrees Basic Income
I have difficulty in understanding those who insist on wishing to pay a basic income of 500 Euros per month to those earning a salary of 2000 Euros, and then deduct the same sum by raising their taxes deducted at source.

Martin Ravallion, Economist · 06 Sep 2017

agrees Basic Income
A basic-income guarantee would dominate net workfare earnings in terms of the impact on poverty for a given budgetary outlay.

I am very much in favour, as long as we know how to apply it without taking away incentive to work at the lower end of the market

Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development in Canada · 06 Sep 2017

agrees Basic Income
I think it’s the principles behind the idea [of a guaranteed income] that matter. These principles are greater simplicity for the government, greater transparency on the part of families and greater equity for everyone

stellacreasy, British Labour Co-operative politician, Member of Parliament · 31 Aug 2017

Can we make all carriages safe for all passengers rather than restricting where we can go? [It] doesn't keep women safe to restrict their movements - it normalises attacks. We need to be clear they [the attackers] are problem, not women's seating plans.

For the last 16 years, temperatures have been going down and the carbon dioxide has been going up and the crops have got greener and grow quicker. We’ve done plenty to smash up the planet, but there’s been no global warming caused by man

Moorad Choudhry, Head of Business Treasury, Global Banking and Markets at Royal Bank of Scotland · 31 Aug 2017

Far from being at risk of stagnation [after a Brexit], we would be able to present ourselves as a genuine open free market, no longer subject to EU bureaucracy and regulation. Expect things to go from strength to strength.

Patrick O'Flynn, · 31 Aug 2017

agrees Brexit
Outside the EU, Britain would get to reoccupy its own seat at the WTO and conduct trade negotiations in its national interest once again, rather than being (mis)represented by an EU commissioner.

Genuine believers in enlightenment values must have the courage of their convictions …. they must learn to trust the people again: we are a sensible, grown-up nation, and we don’t need a bunch of European technocrats to force us to be free.

There’s a good reason why the TUC, EEF and IMF are talking about the real risk to our jobs and our economy [if we vote to leave the EU]. It is working class people across Britain who would be hardest hit if we end up losing those jobs.
