A video introduction to tax havens

This week I posted some news about the crackdown on tax havens – it’s been a good week for campaigners hoping to close them down. Today the new economics foundation are launching a new video explaining what tax havens are and what the effects are. It’s a great introduction, and is apparently the first in a series exploring international finance.

  1. What a load of bollocks, so I am not allowed any privacy and must have the maximum stolen by your national government.

    That aside a very good piece of Orwellian New Speak.

    Atlas Shrugged anyone.

    1. There’s a difference between privacy and keeping the details of your business secret. Transparency in business is a good thing – let’s not forget that mafioso and terrorists use tax havens too. But you appear to think that tax is a form of theft, so I don’t suppose there’s any point in arguing about it.
