The October TaxCast from the Tax Justice Network

Posted on

In the October 2015 Tax Justice Network Podcast we look at the 'remittance cartel' and their 'taxing of the poor' with monopoly prices in a juicy $450-500 billion market.

Also: 'comfort letters' and the game changing European Commission ruling that the tax agreements between Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Fiat and Starbucks constitute illegal state aid.

Finally, we analyse the rich country club of the OECD's BEPS proposals for reform of the global corporate tax system: will it really address corporate tax avoidance and evasion?

Featuring: John Christensen of the Tax Justice Network; economist, lawyer and senior Tax Justice Network advisor James Henry; Somalian wife and mother Shamso Abdullahi (interviewed by CCTV Africa ), and Pope Francis.
