In our latest Taxcast, we talk to the journalists who got the scoop on the Panama Papers last year. Plus: we discuss the raid on Credit Suisse, and new data exposing the profit shifting shenanigans of the EU’s biggest banks.
Featuring: The Panama Papers scoop journalists and Pulitzer Prize winners Bastian Obermayer and Frederik Obermaier of the Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper, and John Christensen of the Tax Justice Network. Produced and presented by Naomi Fowler for the Tax Justice Network. The book The Panama Papers: Breaking the Story of How the Rich and Powerful Hide Their Money is here.
“We think the Panama Papers have changed the political landscape but there’s still plenty of work out there for us, still hundreds of cases of criminal behaviour to be uncovered, so much wrongdoing needs to become public so voters can push their politicians for change.”—Bastian Obermayer and Frederik Obermaier
