Podcast from the Tax Justice Network


In the April 2015 Taxcast:

How fair are our tax systems towards women? 

Plus: one of the USA's biggest corporations (and tax avoiders) is repatriating billions from offshore and re-focusing on good old manufacturing again; and remember how the UK Prime Minister was 'leading the world' in transparency measures not so long ago? 

We discuss the letter a former Cayman Islands lobbyist and Conservative peer wrote at the time to reassure the tax haven that it was an empty gesture to distract from the proposed Financial Transaction Tax.



  • John Christensen of the Tax Justice Network, 
  • Feminist economist Professor Susan Himmelweit of the Women's Budget Group, 
  • Mae Buenaventura of Jubilee South in the Philippines.
