PODCAST: Never mind social welfare, what's corporate welfare costing us?

Ireland
Kenya
Finance

In the October 2014 Taxcast: never mind social welfare, how much is corporate welfare costing us? Across the US they're going to start publishing the tax breaks and subsidies, and we take a look at the latest research in the UK.

Also: Ireland announces it'll abolish the so-called 'Double Irish' tax dodge after the EU Commission finds Apple's tax deal is 'illegal state aid'. But what will they replace it with? Australians discover the true state of the tax contributions made by their top companies and Tax Justice Network Africa makes history by taking the Kenyan government to court in an unprecedented case over a treaty with the tax haven of Mauritius.

Featuring: Tax Justice Network Director John Christensen, Greg LeRoy of Good Jobs First www.GoodJobsFirst.org and the University of York's Dr Kevin Farnsworth. (Dr Farnsworth's research on direct corporate welfare in the UK has not yet been released but as soon as it is we will give further details). Produced and presented by @Naomi_Fowler for the Tax Justice Network.
