What is a “Double Irish with a Dutch Sandwich”?
And why is it that poor and middle-class families in Western countries are accountable for paying taxes while the very richest families and corporations aren’t? And what’s the deal with that empty, fenced off “development project” outside of Nairobi, the one being built for the world’s biggest tech firms?
Tax-Free Tour is a sweeping and infuriating look into the world of offshore tax havens and corporate tax-dodging, including how it all works and how it exacerbates global inequality and economic suffering. Made by Dutch journalists, the film competently dissects an underreported and crucial financial issue and is a real eye-opener. If you find it educational, please share.
The expression plastered on the face of the Starbucks financial officer as he’s being expertly grilled by the British MP—like a naughty boy being taken to task—is unlikely to be forgotten anytime soon.
After watching, there’s a chance you may decide to join the international tax justice movement. Fixing the tax haven issue could potentially ease the pain of millions of families.
