Offshore is ruining the beautiful game

Football game

In this month’s podcast from the Tax Justice Network:

How offshore is ruining the ‘beautiful game’ – the Taxcast scrutinizes football’s own goal. Also: how banks with criminal convictions are being allowed to continue to handle our money; how people may be allowed to apply for anonymity in the UK’s new register of beneficial owners of companies to be introduced in 2016, and the meeting of the world’s most powerful in that bastion of transparency, Davos, Switzerland. Plus more scandal and unique analysis.

‘If we’re shifting competition away from the athleticism, the skill, the talent of the players and into the skill and talent of accountants, lawyers, bankers and boardroom executives, then the sport becomes a pointless thing to go and watch.’
George Turner, Tax Justice Network

Produced and presented by @Naomi_Fowler for the Tax Justice Network.
