Course Description: The seminar covers the historical evolution of modern tax systems. It is composed of three main parts. The first part is devoted to the determinants of tax introductions. Students consider if governments have begun to tax their citizens to finance wars and if more long-term processes like economic modernization and democratization are decisive. The second part deals with the division of the tax burden among different parts of society. The third part covers the impact of globalization on national tax systems. The process by which governments divide the right to tax cross-border economic activity is covered. The course also discusses tax havens that have emerged and the steps that governments take together to fight tax evasion and avoidance.
