Merkel’s and Hollande’s wedding vow: A „yes” for the financial
Love at second sight: After a slightly rough start of their relationship during the French presidential election campaign Chancelor Merkel and the new French president Francois Hollande finally celebrate common interest - both of them are in favour of the financial transaction tax. The tax could be a first step for harmonisation between the two of them. Robin Hood – symbolic figure of the German campaign “Tax against poverty” (Steuer gegen Armut) – solemnized the marriage and reminded the couple that the taxes revenues should be used for fighting poverty and climate change in the world.
