This book explores one way in which a tax system might help promote competitiveness and sustainable development. Focusing on the UK corporation tax, it recommends the introduction of a Resource Productivity Tax Credit, where resource productivity is defined as the money value of outputs relative to the money value of material resource and non-renewable energy inputs. The book is structured such that it first explores the legal mandate to promote competitiveness and sustainable development as contained in article 3(3) of the Treaty of the European Union. It then explores what competitiveness and sustainable development actually mean, particularly in an EU policy context, through the lenses of Europe 2020 and the EU Sustainable Development Strategy. It concludes that not only is there a great deal of common ground between competitiveness and sustainable development, as objectives, but that increasing resource productivity is a necessary means to those shared ends.
This study explores the formation of the European Union's tax policy and asks why member states did not raise objections to it. The author's analysis is enriched by two further levels of inquiry. Firstly, he examines the 'Europeanization' of domestic tax policy in Italy and the UK, asking how domestic policy has changed and what is meant by 'Europeanization'. Secondly, he puts the European Union tax policy in the wider context of tax globalization. Will the liberalization of capital movement, tax havens and the flexibility of multinationals in managing their taxable incomes wreck the European Union's fragile tax policies?

For more than 25 years, the Pratt & Kulsrud Taxation series has provided educators, students and professionals an engaging and clear presentation of tax law. In 1984, the series began with Federal Taxation, a first-of-its-kind textbook exploring issues related to the taxation of individuals and businesses. The success of that text and the demand for additional topics led to the creation of two separate texts: CORPORATE, PARTNERSHIP, ESTATE AND GIFT TAXATION AND INDIVIDUAL TAXATION. Through each edition, the series has consistently held to the principle that the key to learning taxation is to understand the underlying purpose behind every rule. For this reason, the authors and editors have made a concerted effort to provide the conceptual background and the historical foundation they believe are essential for comprehension.
