In the July 2015 Taxcast: in a special extended programme we look at the crisis in Greece and ask whatever happened to European unity? Also: we discuss the European Parliament’s vote for multinational corporations to report their activities on a public, country by country basis: the push to give poorer nations a say in international tax rule-making fails after three days of three days of bullying in Addis Ababa BUT Tax Inspectors Without Borders gets the green light. Plus more scandal and unique analysis.
“They don’t care about the conditions in the country, they don’t care about people, they don’t care about macro economic data you bring them, they don’t care about all these things. All they want is…to get money back, and they can get the money back only if they lend more money. So Greece pays. Greece cannot even get caught up with the interest rates. It’s usury what’s happening, it’s total usury.”
