From Google tax scandals to Taiwan havens
The Tax Justice Network examines the companies and countries that profit from lack of regulation, with host Naomi Fowler.
In this podcast, the Tax Justice Network ask which country is the second easiest in the world after Kenya to set up an anonymous shell company? A spotlight is put on tax haven USA and the lawyers secretly filmed by Global Witness advising a fake corrupt African government Minister.
Additionally, Google's tiny tax payment in the UK and how politicians are interfering with the independence of our tax authorities, and the rise of the unnoticed tax haven of Taiwan.
Featuring: Eryn Schornick of Global Witness, Clark Gascoigne of the Financial Accountability and Corporate Transparency (FACT) Coalition, John Christensen and Markus Meinzer of the Tax Justice Network, and the voices of some (now shamefaced) New York lawyers.
The Taxcast is produced and presented by Naomi Fowler.
