EURSOC SOCKS IT TO CHIRAC



Great take here on Eursoc with regards to Chirac's plea for a global tax at the UN today.



"Like the Kyoto Protocols, this global initiative means little if the United States is not involved. If the US refuses to join in, rival governments can grandstand their committment to global unity without being obliged to make the sacrifices the initiative would require, blaming their lack of action on the Great Satan.



We will take President Chirac more seriously when he takes concrete measures to combat global inequality.



Can EURSOC humbly suggest he donate the money France receives from the EU Common Agricultural Policy to a global fund to fight poverty?"



Zut alors.
