Reports published by STWR

Below is a list of all the reports published by STWR, please follow the link to read the full report.
10. Protect Import Tariffs

This section of the report 'Financing the Global Sharing Economy' argues that a dramatic change of paradigm is needed if rich nations and global institutions are to stop forcing developing countries to liberalise their economies through unfair trade rules - whether as a condition of free trade agreements or in return for financial assistance.

9. Cancel Unjust Debt

This section of the report 'Financing the Global Sharing Economy' argues that debt cancellation is an essential prerequisite for ensuring a more equitable sharing of global financial resources, and the absolute and unconditional cancellation of unjust debts should constitute an urgent priority for the international community.

8. Tax Carbon Emissions

This section of the report 'Financing the Global Sharing Economy' argues that with limited options and time for effective action fast running out, civil society must step up their advocacy for carbon taxes as an important policy tool for reducing climate change and financing mitigation and adaptation programs.  

7. Redistributing IMF Resources

This section of the report 'Financing the Global Sharing Economy' makes the case for redistributing the IMF's assets through its Special Drawing Rights facility and gold sales. These modest proposals could help restore the IMF's flagging legitimacy and prepare the way for more substantial reforms to the global economic architecture.

6. End Support for Agribusiness

This section of the report 'Financing the Global Sharing Economy' demonstrates how shifting subsidy support away from agribusiness in OECD countries could form a major step towards meeting international development goals, and could contribute significantly to a fairer and more environmentally sustainable model of agriculture.

5. Increase International Aid

This section of the report 'Financing the Global Sharing Economy' argues that there can be no justification for advanced economies redistributing so little of their national incomes to assist those living in extreme poverty around the world, and presents the need for a much more generous vision of international aid.

4. Stop Tax Avoidance

This section of the report 'Financing the Global Sharing Economy' argues that preventing the excessive leakage of revenues through tax avoidance and tax evasion is perhaps the first and most important step governments can take to secure additional financial resources and strengthen the sharing economy.

3: Divert Military Spending

This section of the report 'Financing the Global Sharing Economy' demonstrates how governments could redirect the colossal financial resources currently spent on military budgets as a first step toward reducing armed conflict and war, while also providing urgent national and global public goods for social development.

2: End Fossil Fuel & Biofuel Subsidies

This section of the report 'Financing the Global Sharing Economy' on ending government support for fossil fuels and biofuels highlights the importance of transitioning to a low carbon economy, and demonstrates how governments could raise over $500bn each year for worthier social and environmental causes.

1: Taxing Financial Speculation

This section of the report 'Financing the Global Sharing Economy' on taxing financial speculation demonstrates how governments could raise as much as $650bn globally through a Financial Transaction Tax (FTT) to tackle poverty, reverse austerity measures and address climate change.
