The main point of this manifesto is a tax reform plan of the scale of 800 billion euros (about 100 trillion yen). The breakdown of huge tax revenue (left figure below) is a tax revenue obtained by adding 15% to the taxation rate of large multinational companies such as Apple, Google, and Amazon and a tax revenue of more than 100,000 euros (about 13 million yen) Increased taxes on individuals, wealth tax for individual assets with valuation more than 1 million euros (about 130 million yen), and taxation on carbon dioxide emitted by companies and others.

Tax revenues obtained in this way are distributed to the EU countries, 25% to the EU-wide R & D and education, the remainder to budget climate change and immigration issues Policy to be allocated as budget for settlement is stipulated. In addition, how to use tax revenue seems to be monitored by a committee consisting of politicalization of each country and members of the European Parliament.

Speaking of Mr. Piqueti, there are many people who think that the keyword "trickle down" which wealth flows in turn from wealthy people of society to ordinary citizens is closely related, but the manifest announced this time is also It may be said that it is an effective measure of one trickle down. However, there are some people who disagree with this manifesto. British labor lawmaker Richard Corbett, the European Parliament member, should use the mechanism of tax revenue already in the EU, and the manifest this time shows a negative view as " reinventment of the wheel " I will.

Mr. Merkel, who has served as a substantive leader of the EU in Germany, has expressed the retirement in the autumn of 2021, and the EU is in a situation where he can not find the leadership capable person well. It seems that attention will be gathered as to whether the EU, established as a European unity wishfully, will survive and whether problems such as barrier population and immigration problems can be solved.
