The January Taxcast: All about secrecy

Posted on

In the January 2018 Taxcast the results of the Tax Justice Network’s Financial Secrecy Index are explored. We look at:

  • the top ten worst global offenders
  • the 4 key geographical political poles: the Far East, Europe, Britain plus its cluster of satellite tax havens, and the United States
  • and what countries can do independently and as regional blocs to defend themselves against the threats to their economies from offshore secrecy jurisdictions

Featuring: John ChristensenRachel Etter-Phoya and Andres Knobel of the Tax Justice Network. Produced and presented by Naomi Fowler.

“What the Financial Secrecy Index has done I think is help the public understand that tax havenry is much, much more deeply embedded in the entire global economy and it isn’t just small players with palm trees, it includes some of the biggest and most powerful countries in the world” ~ John Christensen
