PODCAST: Colonialism, inequality and the IMF

Finance
Economics

In this month’s podcast Naomi Fowler takes a look at Russia, Ukraine, Londongrad and the offshore threat to global security. Also, modern day colonialism? Niger battles France over fairer revenues for its uranium.

It’s official - inequality IS bad for economic growth as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) becomes an unlikely advocate for tax justice. And the European Parliament moves against anonymous ownership of companies by voting for public registers of beneficial owners.

Featuring: Tax Justice Network’s John Christensen, journalists and authors Oliver Bullough, Ben Judah, Nick Shaxson, US President Barack Obama and an unknown Ukrainian protester. Produced by @Naomi_Fowler for the Tax Justice Network.
