In the May 2017 Taxcast: We talk to film director Michael Oswald about his new film The Spider’s Web: Britain’s Second Empire. Listen for details on how you can see the film.

Also, we discuss booming Sweden’s ‘reverse-Trumpism’: its economy grew almost twice as fast as the US last year – and it wasn’t achieved through cutting taxes.

Plus: the Russian Parliament is considering sweeteners that would accelerate Crimea’s progress along the tax haven and secrecy jurisdiction route.

Featuring: film director Michael Oswald, John Christensen of the Tax Justice Network, author of Treasure Islands: Tax Havens and The Men Who Stole the World, Nicholas Shaxson, Alex Cobham of the Tax Justice Network, Member of the European Parliament Eva Joly. Produced and presented by Naomi Fowler for the Tax Justice Network.

“This is a story that really needs to be told and that needs to enter the public consciousness…the main danger in an overly dominant finance sector as it is in the UK…If we give it too much power what you end up with is a kind of dictatorship of finance.”
Michael Oswald, director of The Spider’ Web: Britain’s Second Empire

‘To all intents and purposes trusts are invisible arrangements. We’re not talking about a few million. We’re talking about trillions of capital which apparently belongs to nobody, for tax purposes and for any other purposes.”
John Christensen, Tax Justice Network

In the April 2017 Taxcast: the Panama Papers, one year on – we talk to the journalists who got the scoop. Plus: we discuss the raid on Credit Suisse, and new data exposing the profit shifting shennanigans of the EU’s biggest banks.

Featuring: The Panama Papers scoop journalists and Pulitzer Prize winners Bastian Obermayer and Frederik Obermaier of the Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper, and John Christensen of the Tax Justice Network. Produced and presented by Naomi Fowler for the Tax Justice Network.

“We think the Panama Papers have changed the political landscape but there’s still plenty of work out there for us, still hundreds of cases of criminal behaviour to be uncovered, so much wrongdoing needs to become public so voters can push their politicians for change.”

Bastian Obermayer and Frederik Obermaier

The Taxcast: Edition 63

March 2017

In our March 2017 Taxcast:

The high price we’re paying for our finance sectors – we look at staggering statistics showing how the US finance sector is a net drag on their economy. Also, as the British government initiates Brexit divorce negotiations to leave the EU, we discuss something they ought to know, but obviously don’t – they’re actually in a very weak position. Could it mean the beginning of the end of the finance curse gripping the UK economy?

Featuring: John Christensen and Alex Cobham of the Tax Justice Network, and Professor of Economics Gerald Epstein of the University of Masachusetts Amhurst. Produced and presented by Naomi Fowler for the Tax Justice Network.

“If you look at particular finance centres, say London and New York, the problem is that the net cost of this system is quite significant, it imposes a cost not only on people who use finance but for the whole economy. So, what we need to think about is what are the more productive activities that ought to be substituted for these excessive aspects of finance?”
~ Professor Gerald Epstein

“We might be seeing the start of the end of Britain’s grip by the Finance Curse”

~ John Christensen, Tax Justice Network on Britain’s weak position in Brexit negotiations
