    As part of the Robinhood Tax coalition, Oxfam is pushing the EU to back a wide-ranging Financial Transaction Tax. A broad-based tax offers a real opportunity to raise billions to help those at home and in poor countries who have been hit hard by the economic crisis and to combat climate change.
