Politicians – serving us or themselves?

Politics
Do our politicians believe in the societies they serve or not? The May 2015 Taxcast from our friends at the Tax Justice Network looks at making the tax returns of our elected representatives public. Plus: the inspirational achievement of journalist Umar Cheema of  the Centre for Investigative Reporting in making Pakistan only the fourth country in the world to publish the tax returns of its Parliamentarians. And: how the British general election demonstrates political capture by finance interests; libertarian paradise – the world’s newest tax haven; and is Singapore trying to shut down reporting on its tax haven status?

Featuring: John Christensen of the Tax Justice Network, @UmarCheema1 of the Centre for Investigative Reporting in Pakistan. cirp.pk

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