Professor of Political Science and International Affairs Surupa Gupta appeared on CGTN America, on “The Heat: Global leaders agree 15% minimum corporate tax.”

It’s called a global minimum corporate tax – designed to crack down on tax havens and impose new levies on large, profitable multinational corporations.

Details remain to be worked out, but according to the OECD, if enacted the plan could bring in about $150 billion in additional global tax revenue per year — and reshape the global economy. CGTN’s Toby Muse has a report.
