"Corporate Tax 2.0: Why France and the World Need a New Tax System for the Digital Age" (Forbes, January 28, 2013)

"Taxation des données : Colin & Collin défendent leur rapport devant les sénateurs" (ZDNet, January 23, 2013)

"Fiscalité du numérique : vers une taxation des données" (Les Echos, January 18, 2013)

The digital revolution has given rise to a digital economy that challenges our concept of value creation. Start-ups and global companies are changing the rules and bringing radical transformation to all sectors of the economy, but the value added is slipping through our grasp. The productivity gains achieved through the digital economy have not led to increased tax revenues for large countries. This discussion will explore a fiscal response and how countries might regain the power to tax profits earned by digital economy companies.

A response is urgently needed to break a spiral that is potentially lethal for the economies of the industrialized countries. This workshop will explore what this fiscal response could look like and how states might regain the power to tax profits earned by digital economy companies.
