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.

 

Featuring: 

  • 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.
