Serving the super-rich

Finance
Economics
In the December 2015 Tax Justice Network podcast: We get some insights into the usually closed world of the wealth managers who serve the super-rich. Also: on a par with Kissinger being awarded the Nobel Peace prize? We discuss the British Banker’s Association getting one of their own into the UK government Treasury, why Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg’s $35-billion ‘charity’ pledge isn’t what it seems, and the anonymous survey of accountants that reveals corruption is rife and the self-regulating profession can no longer be trusted.

Featuring: The Tax Justice Network director John Christensen, Associate Professor of Copenhagen Business School, Brooke Harrington. Produced and presented by @Naomi_Fowler for the Tax Justice Network.

‘Tax avoidance was really only the tip of the iceberg... really what Wealth Managers do extends much more generally to law avoidance in general and that creates problems of legitimacy for whole governments.’
Brooke Harrington

‘[In accountancy] we now have a level of professional integrity that is virtually non-existent...societies now need to protect themselves.’
John Christensen
