In the interview, Piketty states about EU: “We cannot wait for unanimity to change the rule of unanimity. So at some point we need to have a subset of countries, ideally including the largest countries — Germany, France, Italy, Spain, as many countries as possible — which decide to sign a new treaty between them whereby they will take a majority-rule decision on a certain number of tax decisions: to create a common tax on the profits of large corporations, on large carbon emissions and on high-income, high-wealth taxpayers. This will be done through majority rule among these countries.”
