WE ARE ALL NEOCONOMIST NOW:

Spain aims to raise environmental taxes to cut deficit (Reuters, 12/10/16)


Spain aims to raise 500 million euros ($528 million) through a reform of environmental taxes next year in its bid to bring down its public deficit, according to the government's revised budget plan for 2017. [...]

Other measures already outlined by ministers include tax hikes on alcohol, tobacco and sugared drinks as well as a crackdown on tax fraud and the elimination of some tax breaks for companies.

Tax what you don't want, not what you do.
