All of this calls for an extra measure of tolerance on the part of all. Such are, for example, greater corporate profitability and a shift in the income tax base from personal to corporate, as taxpayers take advantage of incorporation and the associated lower tax rates. [44] This, in turn, leads to a growing corporate sector that yields more taxes mainly due to its increased volume. [45] Worldwide corporate tax-base broadening, particularly among OECD member countries, is another potential contributor to the improved corporate revenue yield. [46] Over the past few years, prominent tax scholars and analysts have more vocally endorsed the proposition that the long-run flattening of personal and corporate income tax rates, and the move away from taxation of capital and high-income taxpayers more generally to less mobile taxpayers and resources such as consumption and labor, seriously distort tax structures while rendering tax systems around the world more regressive. [47] Reuven Avi-Yonah explains: “[C]ountries that formerly relied on income tax revenues now must increase relatively regressive taxes, such as consumption and payroll taxes, which in recent years have been the fastest growing taxes in the member countries of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).” [48] A holistic view of global tax trends during the past thirty-five years thus suggests that, in order to meet present-day challenges, nations and their tax systems must reconsider the available revenue sources—either within or outside the tax realm—as well as the alternative of cutting back on government spending, given the risk of revenue decline. [49] While either option has significant tax implications, both also concern a range of broader and more nuanced policy dilemmas, such as distribution, efficiency, and national and societal identity.

Generally, globalization is first thought of “in economic and political terms, as a movement of capitalism spreading across the globe.”[1] It calls to mind “homogenizing exports of the US” such as Nike, McDonald’s, and MTV.[2] However, since globalization can be defined as a process of an “ever more interdependent world”[3] where “political, economic, social, and cultural relationships are not restricted to territorial boundaries or to state actors,” globalization has much do with its impact on cultures.[4] As goods and finance crisscross across the globe, globalization shifts the cultural makeup of the globe and creates a homogenized “global culture.”[5] Although not a new phenomenon, the process of globalization has truly made the world a smaller place in which political, social, and economic events elsewhere affect individuals anywhere.[6] As a result, individuals “search for constant time and space-bounded identities” in a world ever changing by the day.[7] One such identity is religion.
