Will Rice and Annabel Park interview economist Dean Baker co-director of the Center for Economic Policy Research about the financial transaction tax popularly referred to as the Robin Hood tax. He has been advocating for this tiny tax on Wall Street transactions for years and it is now finally gaining support and momentum around the world.

The Coffee Party supports the financial transaction tax and has featured it in its position paper. In this hour, as part of the Citizens Intervention Series, we hope to not only learn more about it, but discuss what we can do to win.
