The April Taxcast from the Tax Justice Network

Posted on

In the April 2015 Taxcast from the Tax Justice Network: How fair are our tax systems towards women?

Plus: one of the USA's biggest corporations (and tax avoiders) is repatriating billions from offshore and re-focusing on good old manufacturing again; and remember how the UK Prime Minister was 'leading the world' in transparency measures not so long ago? We discuss the letter a former Cayman Islands lobbyist and Conservative peer wrote at the time to reassure the tax haven that it was an empty gesture to distract from the proposed Financial Transaction Tax.

In addition we discuss the idea that tax should be a source of our well being, of our development, of our future...but you have to work on these systems, on owning the systems and changing them and making them work for our present improvement of our lives and the future that we want with Mae Buenaventura from Jubilee South in the Philippines

Featuring: John Christensen of the Tax Justice Network, Feminist economist Professor Susan Himmelweit of the Women's Budget Group, Mae Buenaventura of Jubilee South in the Philippines, Steven Nelms (Ezra's dad).
