Prince Carlos on Dutch television

3 Nov 2016

October 10, Prince Carlos de Bourbon de Parme made a statement on Dutch national television in support of the tax shift. The prince, who is Advisor to The Ex'tax Project Foundation stated:

"We really need to change the rules of the game. We should look at our fiscal system. In fact we should lower tax on labour (as there is plenty of labour, with 7 billion people), and move towards taxing materials, for example, energy and CO2."

The broadcast took place on Dutch Sustainability Day, by NOS [44:53 min].

In Dutch: "We moeten echt de regels van het spel veranderen. We moeten kijken naar de fiscaliteit. Eigenlijk moeten we de belasting op arbeid verminderen want arbeid is er genoeg - er zijn 7 miljard mensen- (...) en gaan naar belasting bijvoorbeeld op materiaal en energie en CO2."
