The Taxcast: Edition 58

In the October 2016 Tax Justice Network podcast: we look at the offshorisation of Iceland’s economy, its collapse and recovery. What are the lessons? Also, Brazil adds Ireland to its tax haven blacklist and Panama threatens anyone who dares call it a tax haven with a new law…plus more scandal and unique analysis you won’t find anywhere else.

Produced by Naomi Fowler for the Tax Justice Network and featuring Sigrun Davidsdottir, journalist, blogger and podcaster, journalist Ingólfur Sigfússon and John Christensen of the Tax Justice Network.

“Iceland didn’t do what Europe has been doing, lingering in a limbo and not really tackling the big issues, we can see that every so often the European banking sector is struggling now with Italian banks, with Deutsche bank and so on, and this is very much down to the fact the painful things have been avoided and I often say that Iceland shows that a quick stab is better than a lingering pain. Iceland took the quick stab, it was extremely painful at the time but at least things have and are being slowly cleared out and that makes a huge difference compared to the so many European countries where the lingering pain is still there.”

Sigrun Davidsdottir, journalist, blogger and podcaster www.uti.is

“Panama is not just a major secrecy jurisdiction, it is a politically delinquent secrecy jurisdiction…they are moving away from a democratic country where civil society can interact freely…to an increasingly autocratic model and Panama now deserves to have strong international sanctions imposed upon it to make sure it doesn’t proceed down this highly autocratic highly secretive, highly non-cooperative model because the only people who’ll benefit from that are the criminals”

John Christensen of the Tax Justice Network

In our September 2016 Taxcast:

How a conman can devastate the lives of thousands of ordinary people, aided and abetted by the offshore industry – with banks, law firms and accountants all happy to look the other way and not ask questions. Plus: we discuss the latest leak from the Bahamas, #BahamasLeaks and Apple’s 13 billion euro underpaid tax bill: a defining moment in the battle between the low/no-tax world big corporations would like to see and democratic, accountable governance in the public interest.

“Apple deliberately, puposely, and for many decades has rejected the values and benefts that flow from democracy and fair markets…Markets are being rigged by big companies like Apple and by their tax advisors and by countries who do these deals.”

John Christensen, Tax Justice Network on #AppleTax

“The UK is the most corrupt country on earth, anyone with a modicum of interest in corruption will tell you that the City of London is the biggest Laundromat of corrupt money and black money and drug money that there is.”

Alek Boyd, anti-corruption blogger, journalist and asset recovery specialist

Featuring: John Christensen of the Tax Justice Network, and Columbia University Professor, Economist, lawyer and Tax Justice Network senior advisor James Henry. Produced and presented by @Naomi_Fowler for the Tax Justice Network. Also available on iTunes.
