EconPol Europe: Tech Giants Should be Subject to Digital Services Tax, but Definition Needs Tightening
A new study from EconPol Europe has analyzed the proposals and international implications around taxing digital platforms and concludes that the European Commission’s proposed digital services tax (DST) addresses the concerns shared by policy makers. However, there should be a more stringent definition of the digital platforms that are subjected to such a tax.
EconPol Europe Study Reveals Motivations of Emigrants and Gender Gap in Views on Redistribution of Income
An EconPol Europe analysis of self-selected emigrants from Denmark shows that work is the main consideration for men, while family reasons are the primary motivation for women to emigrate. The study also reveals that women who emigrate are more in favor of increasing income redistribution, while most men view redistribution negatively.

The study suggests that while a digital tax on revenues may be an effective measure to prevent profit shifting, the economic effects of reduced investment and growth of digital companies may outweigh any potential benefits.
