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.

Enligt en ny studie på uppdrag av Europeiska ekonomiska och sociala kommittén genererar gränsöverskridande tjänster nya arbetstillfällen och ekonomisk tillväxt. Dessa tjänster är positiva för alla EU-länder och för olika typer av arbetstillfällen – både arbets- och kunskapsintensiva. Genom dokumentet bevisar man att det gynnar EU:s ekonomi att undvika stränga regler vad gäller den inre marknaden för gränsöverskridande tjänster. En procents minskning av andelen gränsöverskridande tjänster skulle kosta EU:s ekonomi omkring 8 miljarder euro.
