Release Date: 26-Oct-2011
Hear John Christensen from Tax Justice International speak on how tax havens cheat developing countries and mean the rest of us have to pay more tax or miss out on services. He should know. For 11 years he was on the inside as economic adviser to the government of Jersey. He is now the founder of the Tax Justice Network, campaigning for an end to secrecy jurisdictions.
Developing countries lost an estimated $1,300 billion in illicit financial transfers in 2009, most of it through tax evasion and most of it laundered through secrecy jurisdictions. This comes at the cost the lives of millions of people every year.
Here's your chance to learn about how to combat this corruption!
