Dems Consider Tax on Big Stock Trades
National Public Radio's Marketplace
"Christopher Bergin publishes Tax Analysts, a journal of tax information. He doesn't think the tax would pack enough of a punch to really deter speculators. 'And I think there are a lot of people who are angry, justifiably, at Wall Street, and I think this is a way to sort of vent. It might slow things down, but I'm a little dubious of that even.' Bergin says the transaction tax would have to be closer to 1 percent to really put a dent in speculation. But, he says, taxes have a habit of rising once they're approved by Congress, so the tax could eventually pack a punch.'"
