"To love Europe is to change it," by Thomas Piketty

... a Franco-German Assembly, open immediately to Italy, Spain and all the countries that so desire, and qualified to adopt strong measures of fair taxation, is not a utopia. This could be set up immediately. This would permit a reduction in the tax burden of the lower income groups and the financing of the ecological transition. A detailed proposal, developed by lawyers and citizens from all over Europe has received the support of over 100,000 signatures (www.tdem.eu). It can and should be improved. The main point is that each government and political movement should publically defend specific proposals, and stop declaring that this is impossible and taking refuge behind the reluctance of the others.
