New and views from the Tax Justice Network

 

In the October 2015 Tax Justice Network Podcast:

  • The 'remittance cartel' and their 'taxing of the poor' with monopoly prices in a juicy $450-500 billion market.
  • 'Comfort letters' and the game changing European Commission ruling that the tax agreements between Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Fiat and Starbucks constitute illegal state aid.
  • We analyse the rich country club of the OECD's BEPS proposals for reform of the global corporate tax system: will it really address corporate tax avoidance and evasion?


Featuring:

 

  • John Christensen of the Tax Justice Network
  • Economist, lawyer and senior Tax Justice Network advisor James Henry
  • Somalian wife and mother Shamso Abdullahi (interviewed by CCTV Africa)
  • Pope Francis

 
 

 


Produced and presented by @Naomi_Fowler for the Tax Justice Network.
