Do the Robin Hood dance, make the Robin Hood face
A Wednesday morning musical treat for you. Here at ToUChstone, we’re big fans of Jonathan Mann, a very talented US singer/songwriter, whose innovative solution to recession-imposed unemployment was to start writing a new song every (yes, every) day, making money from commissions, downloads, ringtones, anything (a kind of “weddings, parties, bar mitzvahs anything 2.0”).
As he’s already aced the popular ‘liberal economist biographies’ genre, with “Hey, Paul Krugman“, and “Come on Nouriel“, we asked him if he’d be interested in giving his own take on our current pet issue of financial transaction taxes. About 12 hours later, this is it: Song/day number 419, The Robin Hood Tax.
