Upsetting the Applecart: Tax-Based Industrial Policy for Ireland and Europe examines the role of multinational enterprises in increasing inequality. Its expert authors offer a radical new analysis of the issues including the ineffective taxation of multi-national enterprises, tax avoidance through widespread use of tax havens in Ireland and elsewhere, and the need for an alternative and effective industrial policy.
