This site is under construction but will hopefully soon have own content on #BanPrivateJets and related topics. In the meantime, here is a sample of articles on the issue:
- This article by Aaron Eisenberg on the Jacobin magazine summarizes the case for the ban from a leftist perspective
- This post by Lambert Strether on the Blog Naked Capitalism makes the obvious case for the ban lingering longer on the point of view of the rich
- But also The Economist sees the absurdity of private jets, more or less
The Economist does indeed recognize that tax breaks on horribly polluting private jets are outrageous. However, I say, we can’t wait for international action on tax avoidance to fix the Isle of Man-loophole and the rest. It is much easier and effective to #BanPrivateJets now.
