Robin Boadway, one of the leading experts in public finance, tells us in this interview —after being awarded an honorary doctorate by the UB on 16 June— the elements for a federal tax system to work properly. He warns that, in order to avoid the “predatory competition” between territories, we need to limit the ability of “using taxes and subsidies to attract businesses from neighbouring jurisdictions”. Boadway also mentions, among other issues, the need to tackle the growing inequality of society through taxes: his proposals are based on “an efficient inheritance tax system” and “reforming the income tax system”. Moreover, he thinks the young generations should not address the problems of the aging population and that these burdens should be spread over generations.
