PODCAST: Forget congress and legislate!
Forget Congress! This month's taxcast looks at the latest US state to take matters into its own hands and legislate against tax havens. Also: the scandal of how the Bank for International Settlements has kept offshore private wealth data to itself, the British government tries to impress its friends in Washington with a ‘tough’ new tax evasion offence, taxing problems in Nigeria and... how will British Parliamentarian Lord Blencathra manage now that his US$20,000 a month contract with the Cayman Islands has been terminated?
Produced by @Naomi_Fowler for the Tax Justice Network. Featuring: Tax Justice Network Director John Christensen, Maine Representative Adam Goode, Phineas Baxandall of consumer group US PIRG, Mike Kadas of the Montana Revenue Department, Director of Ethical Consumer and the Fair Tax Mark Leonie Nimmo and Maine residents.
