The May 2014 Taxcast

   0   0 Blog
In the Tax Justice Network’s May 2014 Taxcast: the Taxcast looks at privatisation and tax: what happens when public assets or services get into private hands? Also: Google’s challenged on its tax affairs by its own shareholders; will Congress block the US administration’s decision to agree to the G20’s global transparency standard? And whatever happened to the UK government’s ‘leadership’ on public registers of the real owners of companies now it turns out it’ll ‘encourage’ but not ‘force’ its overseas territories & Crown dependencies to sign up to the initiative?

Produced by @Naomi_Fowler and featuring economist James Henry, John Christensen of the Tax Justice Network, Colombian Union leader Gerardo Santibanez, journalist and writer George Turner, Donald Cohen of www.inthepublicinterest.org Educationalist Daniel Weil, and philosopher Michael J Sandel.
