Resumen Ejecutivo – La carta completa aquí: http://bit.ly/1s9FWpW

Intensas negociaciones están en marcha este mes en las Naciones Unidas sobre los nuevos Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible que se pondrá en marcha en 2015, pero los ODS están casi completamente en silencio sobre uno de los temas de desarrollo más importantes de nuestra generación: el fraude fiscal. Académicos contra la Pobreza (ASAP) está tomando medidas para cambiar esta situación.

Los abusos fiscales drenan de países en desarrollo cientos de miles de millones de dólares cada año, superando ampliamente la cantidad total de la ayuda que los países en desarrollo reciben.

Muchas corporaciones multinacionales cambian sus ganancias a jurisdicciones donde los impuestos son más bajos o incluso inexistentes. Entre 2002 y 2011, este tipo de prácticas han robado de países $ 4.7 billones, que es casi seis veces el monto de la asistencia oficial para el desarrollo que recibieron durante el mismo período.

Los individuos ricos en los países en desarrollo también abusan del sistema fiscal: entre el 26 y el 33 por ciento de toda la riqueza financiera privada de propiedad de personas en África, América Latina, Oriente Medio y Asia se mantiene en el extranjero. Debido a que los gobiernos de países en desarrollo no pueden gravar esos fondos ocultos, es que se carecen de los recursos necesarios para ayudar a sus ciudadanos a salir de la pobreza.

Tenemos la oportunidad de poner fin a esta práctica destructiva. Cincuenta prominentes expertos fiscales y de desarrollo han firmado una carta abierta pidiendo al Secretario General de la ONU Ban Ki-moon, presionar por la inclusión de políticas específicas en las ODS para detener el abuso de los impuestos de una vez por todas.

Firma y circula esta petición para agregar su nombre en la carta abierta: http://bit.ly/1s9FWpW y unirse a la lucha contra el fraude fiscal en los más altos niveles. Usted puede ayúdenos a alcanzar nuestra meta de conseguir 2.015 firmas ante la Asamblea General ONU que se reúne el 24 de septiembre.
