349.17 // Tax Hike Imminent?


There has been a sense of uneasiness around the Central Stock Exchange on Coruscant in recent days as figures indicate a steady inflation that has been unheard of in generations. If the reports are accurate, these rising costs would result in a tax hike for all systems bound by the Equilibrium Agreement.

The Equilibrium Agreement was introduced in 302ABY and approximately seventy six systems currently adhere to the conditions laid out. Despite this, the scheme has often been criticised for its overgeneralizations and overreactions to market fluctuations. In fact, some experts cite the Equilibrium Agreement as the reason for Kobaria’s bankruptcy in 326ABY, the effects of which are still felt today.

CCFW approached a representative from the Central Stock Exchange for comment, but were refused.
