In this podcast, the Tax Justice Network look at the intersection of tax and game-changing politics.

The next financial crisis? We look at offshore and the trillion dollar derivatives market. Plus: we discuss how Mexico's trying to force multinational companies to pay more tax, why recent market madness originating in China shows we need a Financial Transactions Tax more than ever, and how the recent election by a landslide of UK opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn is a game-changer.

'We've now entered what I think of as third wave of global financial shocks' - John Christensen

Featuring: John Christensen of the Tax Justice Network; US Senator; Sherrod Brown http://www.brown.senate.gov/; Lisa Donner of Americans
for Financial Reform http://ourfinancialsecurity.org/ and author of Treasure Islands, Nicholas Shaxson.
