Taxation and Civic virtue. An interdisciplinary and intercontinental debate

Conférencier : Nicolas Delalande, professeur adjoint, département d'histoire, Sciences Po Paris.

Intervention dans le cadre d'un atelier interdisciplinaire sur la taxation et les vertus civiques : une comparaison Europe-Amérique du Nord.

Résumé de l'atelier (en anglais) : Debates over taxation and a common fiscal policy in Europe have been mushrooming these last months as a response to the delawerization of Europe and competitive fiscal dumping and at a moment when the European integration idea is viewed with more and more skepticism. Besides the obvious and superficial appeals to "civic virtue", can taxation, especially of the wealth producers or detainers be seen as producing or enhancing a notion of civic community? And what is the appropriate level where this phenomenon occurs: local, state, federal ? What can the examples of federal states as Canada and the USA tell us on issues such as imposition of federal taxation and opposition to federal taxation? What can the various national examples in Europe teach us on the way to deal with this fundamental question: How do you get the "wealthy" to pay?
