News and views from the Tax Justice Network  


The May 2016 Taxcast asks "What is corruption?", and discusses the anti-corruption summit which was held in London this month. Who is the most corrupt? Is it a poor country issue? 

Tax Justice Network compare extortive corruption versus collusive corruption. What do the British public consider to be corrupt? How has the way business and politics operate raised questions about democracy and the nature of global fraud? 

The guests deliberating these issues are: 

  • Nicholas Shaxson of 'Treasure Islands: Tax Havens and The Men Who Stole the World'
  • Professor Vincenzo Ruggiero of the Crime and Conflict Research Centre at Middlesex University
  • Will McMahon of the Centre of Crime and Justice Studies
  • Professor  David Whyte of Liverpool University and editor of book 'How Corrupt is Britain'
