In the Tax Justice Network's May 2014 Taxcast: the Taxcast looks at privatisation and tax: what happens when public assets or services get into private hands? Also: Google's challenged on its tax affairs by its own shareholders; will Congress block the US administration's decision to agree to the G20's global transparency standard? And whatever happened to the UK government's 'leadership' on public registers of the real owners of companies now it turns out it'll 'encourage' but not 'force' its overseas territories & Crown dependencies to sign up to the initiative?
