Corporate taxes could the the most harmful form of taxation to economic growth. Contrary to public perception, there has been no reduction in corporate tax revenues in relation to GDP in the last 40 years. Countries that have reduced their corporate tax rates in recent years have seen increases in investment in the following years. There is no race to the bottom, rather to a middle range of some 20% corporate tax rate and revenues are stable or even increasing.

Според ново проучване, изготвено по поръчка на Европейския икономически и социален комитет, трансграничните услуги генерират нови работни места и икономически растеж. Те са благотворни за всички страни от ЕС и за различните видове работни места — както трудоемките, така и наукоемките.

Намаляването на дела на трансграничните услуги с 1 % би струвало на икономиката на ЕС около 8 милиарда евро.
