Should the Big Four accountancy firms be broken up?
In this podcast, our friends at the Tax Justice Network (TJN) speak with John Christensen at TJN, tax ethicist George Rozvany and award winning economics and finance journalist Michael West, about the Big Four accountancy firms: are they in fact more like the 'Big One'? Should they be broken up?
Also: the Duke of Westminster's 9 billion tax free inheritance and how his family history forms the legal basis for the justification of tax avoidance around the world; why are the world's biggest banks now officially endorsing transparency measures?
And more: so much for Panama cleaning up its act post-Panama Papers scandal: we discuss the demise of Panama's not-so-transparent Transparency Commission.
Produced and presented by Naomi Fowler.
