Taxation and the Digital Economy
Massimiliano Trovato, October 2014
It is widely acknowledged that Europe lags behind when it comes to digital entrepreneurship. The largest players in the digital economy are based elsewhere, primarily in the US, Japan, Israel, and even China. EU institutions should then look to account for this lack of innovation and address the problems that are holding back the European digital sector. Easing the burden of doing business online would go a long way to foster a thriving tech sector.
