Abstract:     
Five years after the onset of the global financial crisis, Europe’s financial system remains vulnerable to systemic threats. As part of continuing reform efforts, the European Commission has proposed levying a tax on financial transactions such as sales or exchanges of securities. This Essay argues that the proposed tax does little to solve the problems of financial instability in Europe and that the tax threatens to undermine concurrent regulatory efforts to improve financial stability.
