In The Joy of Tax tax campaigner and creator of 'Corbynomics' Richard Murphy challenges almost every idea you have about tax. For him tax is fundamentally about the ideas that shape the sort of society we want to live in not technicalities. His intention is to demonstrate that there is indeed a joy in tax and by embracing it we can create a fairer society and change the world for the better. Tax has been a feature of human society for a very long time. Almost no one gives tax a good press even though as Richard Murphy argues it has been fundamental to the development of democracy the world over. Whilst we may not like tax very much in contrast it is clear that we really do like the public services which governments provide. So much so in fact that for most of the last 300 years people have been more than happy for governments to run deficits by spending more than they raise in taxation. 2008 apparently changed all that. The issues of debt deficits cuts and austerity have dominated the political agenda ever since. Virtually every aspect of the government's finances and how to rearrange them in the forlorn hope of balancing the books has been discussed in great detail. Despite that there has been almost no real discussion during this period about what tax is for and how it contributes to the creation of the society we aspire to.
