Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Economics professor Stephen Smith explains how taxes have real effects on people and the economy that policy-makers have to balance. He says decisions about taxation would be improved if the public had a better understanding of the role of tax and the nature and effect of different taxes. Smith is a professor of economics at University College London and a former deputy director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies.
