When tax meets game-changing politics
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.
