The group promotes the world-wide implementation of ” Tax Tobin” or ” Tobin” rate;. The Tobin Rate has several objectives. The main one is to burden to the speculative movements of capitals with a tax and to discourage the mere speculation. The collected money would be used to solve to the hunger and the social injustice of the present global world. The grouping ATTAC arose exactly with the aim of avoiding the abuses of the free movement of finacnieros capitals around the world.The lack of control of the movement of capitals ends up putting in risk national economies and, in the long run, to the global economy.
