I think there is a part missing in the middle, because I couldn’t find an argument why TJN is a good place to donate
Sorry, I should have been a bit clearer on this—TJN is central to the tax justice community. The policies mentioned would have considerably less traction without TJN:
Automatic Exchange of Information
Universal Beneficial Ownership
Country by Country Reporting
Organizations focused on developing countries wouldn’t have been created (or created as soon) without TJN:
Tax Inspectors without Borders
I attempted to answer “what would they do with additional funding?” in the future plans section. Concepts like Optimal Tax Theory (thank you again Larks!) are key to advancing the discussion, “tax incentives are important for investment and growth” versus “tax incentives distort markets impairing investment and growth”.Hauke suggested building an expected value model of think tank funding. For example, how much would it cost to have a 10% chance of recouping 20% of the $5B/year in lost tax revenue? I haven’t had a chance to do that yet, but if you (or anyone else) has interest in helping to build that, please message me.
Did you make the table that ranks the interventions. (AEOI, UBO, CbCR)? If yes, can you provide details on the methodology?
I did, but the methodology was not very rigorous. After I finish with illicit financial flows, I’ll revisit it properly.
