FILM AND GAMES

FAST AND DANGEROUS RACE TO THE BOTTOM

Fast and Dangerous Race to the bottom gets right into the essence of the problem of lower taxation of the multinationals and billionaires and exposes a black hole in globalization that could in fact change the history of globalization. For the first time in this film, it is shown that if we are caught in a tax brothel today, it is because tax competition and the threat of a “race to the bottom” in taxation have never been discussed during the negotiations of globalization.

Interviews in Paris were carried out the week before the containment of 2020 and all the others were carried out during containment. It gives a feeling of authenticity and intimacy to the film.

Brief history of

TaxCOOP

In 2005-2006, Brigitte Alepin (co-founder of TaxCOOP) completed a research contract with Harvard Kennedy School on the question: “How to adapt our tax systems to globalization?”. The idea of ??TaxCOOP comes to her as she realized the tax competition that would result from the application of our traditional tax regimes in a globalized world.

FILM AND GAMES

THE PRICE WE PAY

This documentary, inspired by Canadian tax expert Brigitte Alepin’s book The coming Fiscal Crisis, focuses on the tax evasion mechanisms by which multinational corporations manage not to pay billions of dollars in taxes. This tax evasion/avoidance leads to an increase in income inequality and impoverishes the middle classes.

LE PRIX À PAYER

Ce documentaire inspiré du livre La Crise fiscale qui vient, de la fiscaliste canadienne Brigitte Alepin, porte sur les mécanismes d’évasion fiscale grâce auxquels les multinationales parviennent à ne pas payer des milliards de dollars en impôt. Cette évasion fiscale conduit à un accroissement des inégalités de revenu, et appauvrit les classes moyennes.
