Taxes are one way society can share its wealth. Its not just about solidarity with the less wealthy. Its a contribution towards a functional and safe society, towards public services such as education or healthcare or other public. Despite this, a number of people see them as a burden or even as wasted money.

In todays global economy, corporate tax evasion and chronic failure to tax profits where they are created has the greatest impact on the poorest countries.

How can philanthropy and the use of tax havens coexist? Why do we dislike paying taxes, but send DMS donations? Should we rely on philanthropy and mutual solidarity rather than the state? How do corporations look upon the topic of fair taxation - will this become a new subject in the area of social responsibility?
