- The adaptation of a global minimum corporate tax to discourage tax avoidance. - The adaptation of transparent and fair global corporate taxation to avoid the creation of tax havens. 

Ideas

- Minimum global corporate tax 

- Including the proposes that Biden has been doing to the G-8 and G-20 - Tax havens, tackling tax avoidances, unfair competitions 

- transparency from the tax heaven to the home country of the company - tax dumping (tax level around 2-3-4% → unfair competition) 

- Tax/ fiscal benefits for social businesses 

- including but not limited to: sustainability, gender equality, access to healthcare, etc 

- How can progressive corporate taxation help make the gap between big and small businesses smaller.

- How can countries persuade local SMEs (Small Medium Enterprises) and large corporations to remain within their borders?
