The Tax justice Network’s February 2015 Podcast

   0   0 Blog, Regular Features, tjfapp

Just what does a bank have to do to lose its licence?! We look at the fall out from #HSBCLeaks and ask how can we genuinely tackle criminality in global finance? Also: the latest research on fines and crimes in banking; why a recent threat to have UK Crown Dependencies and Overseas territories blacklisted won’t exactly have them shaking in their shoes; plus more scandal and unique analysis.

“The worst thing that can happen to you as a CEO of HSBC is to retire and move on and have to face the press 5 years down the road if you’re caught…” Jim Henry

Featuring: Director of The Tax Justice Network John Christensen, author of Treasure Islands NicholasShaxson, Economist and asset recovery specialist Jim Henry, HSBC whistleblower Herve Falciani. Produced and presented by @Naomi_Fowler for the Tax Justice Network.
