WorldCupIn the June 2014 Taxcast: the guillotine v progressive tax?

The Taxcast looks at Thomas Piketty’s book Capital in the 21st Century. Also: welcome to the temporary tax haven of World Cup Brazil; the EU Commission begins investigations into illegal state aid for tax havens; and are developing countries really not interested in tracking illicit outflows from their countries via transparency? Plus more scandal.

Produced by @Naomi_Fowler for the Tax Justice Network.

Featuring: Journalist and Treasure Islands author Nick Shaxson, Economist and author of Capital in the 21st Century Thomas Piketty, Director of the Tax Justice Network John Christensen, head of the Bank of England Mark Carney, head of the IMF Christine Lagarde, MEP Martin Schulz.
