It’s legal, but is it moral? Tax morality and its limits

The question will be examined in a captivating conference by three experts: Jean-Pierre Vidal, professor at the HEC in Montréal and specialist in tax ethics and international taxation (in French from 0:00 to 3:55); followed by Brian Arnold, Senior Adviser of the Canadian Tax Foundation (in English from 3:56 to 21:15); and concluding with Alison Holder, Director of Inequalities and Fiscal Policy at Oxfam (in English from 21:20 to 39:00).
