Can’t Pay, Won’t Pay! A Popular History of Taxes
Film screening hosted by Natacha Postel-Vinay (LSE)
24 October 2022, 6.30pm
Without taxation there is no government. Taxation is essential, but who is to pay, and for what? For centuries people have fought over these questions, and these fights have been at the heart of the development and crises of democracy, from Magna Carta through the French Revolution to the Global Financial Crisis and the pandemic. Bringing together internationally renowned academic experts and policymakers, this gripping documentary retraces this fascinating history across France, Britain and Germany from the Middle Ages to the present day.
