News and views from the Tax Justice Network 


In the January 2016 Tax Justice Network podcast:

What's Scotland got to do with the plunder of Moldova? We take a look at the 'Wild West' of Scottish Limited Partnerships.  

We discuss the tensions in the EU; is the net finally closing on multinational companies, the tax minimisation deals they've been getting from various European countries and the big four accountancy firms who advised them?

Just how bad was the sell off of one of Colombia's most profitable power generation companies? What's former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair got to do with it? And why's it been ignored outside Latin America? 

We talk about the MEP who's dragging the European Commission through the courts to get access to papers they'd rather we didn't see. John Christensen will eat his hat if they DON'T reveal what MEP Fabio De Masi suspects they will: 'systematic political backup for a tax avoidance cartel that costs taxpayers in the EU hundreds of billions of dollars annually.'

 

Featuring:

  • The Tax Justice Network director John Christensen
  • Daria Kaleniuk of the Anti-Corruption Action Centre in Ukraine
  •  Finance journalist and writer Ian Fraser 
  • Richard Smith, finance journalist and blogger at Naked Capitalism

 

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