Inequality and The 1%: Is a Transformative Fiscal Policy Possible?
July 10, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
The High-level Political Forum will take place between the 9 and 19 of July, 2019, in New York, USA.
It is the United Nations central platform for follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals. It provides for the full and effective participation of all States Members of the United Nations and States members of specialized agencies.
On the 10 of July, a parallel event will take place on “Inequality and The 1%: Is a Transformative Fiscal Policy Possible?”.
This event will allow participants to gain a better understanding of the key drivers and consequences of inequitable and ineffective tax systems, from global to local levels. They will be exposed to new empirical evidence and concrete experiences of different actors and countries that have implemented and funded equality-enhancing policies (policies to combat both vertical and horizontal inequality), and will come away with insights into the political strategies that can be mobilized to move towards a new fiscal compact for sustainable development.
