This Nation Just Proposed Levying a Social Media Tax to Generate Revenue to Pay Down Debt

In what is probably one of the more unique maneuvers out there to raise tax revenue, the nation of Uganda is proposing a tax on social media that would amount to $USD .05 per day but which could net the government $USD 1.5 million a month to be directed towards paying down the sovereign debt – a move that would have a disproportionate effect on photographers who rely on social media as a way to promote their work.
