Book Review:
The Joy of Tax by Richard Murphy

In The Joy of Tax, tax campaigner 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.

Murphy is a tax specialist, professor and adviser (it would seem) to both sides of the UK political spectrum – having advised David Cameron and credited with inspiring Corbynomics. He’s an outspoken, fast talking challenger of most of the myths about money and tax that you will ever have heard. Above all he stands up for the idea that tax has the ability to change society for the better. He blogs at http://www.taxresearch.org.uk/Blog/ – it’s not for the fainthearted.
