Feasta and the Smart Taxes Network are holding a conference on the 22nd & 23rd of September in the Mont Clare Hotel in Dublin 2. The people who work in Feasta are ideologically diverse (that is one of the things I really like about them!) and a bright bunch, the delivery, debate and data are all sure to be excellent.
