Guests: Nicholas Shaxson
Nick Shaxson is a British writer, journalist and investigator. He is author of the acclaimed 2007 book Poisoned Wells: the Dirty Politics of African Oil, and Treasure Islands in 2010.
He is a journalist and part-time writer and researcher for the Tax Justice Network, an expert-led group focused on tax and tax havens.
In 2012 the International Tax Review named him as one of its “Global Tax 50″ most influential people in international tax.
We discuss with Nick what are the implications behind corporate tax avoidance and how we can mitigate it.
Our version of capitalism is something that the narcissistic writer, Ayn Rand, would adore. But in a headlong rush to hyper individualism, have we chosen freedom of the individual over survival of our species?
We met with entrepreneur and CEO of State of Flux Alan Day and hedge fund manager and investor Mitch Fierstein to discuss how the Corona virus will affect the world's supply chains.
We discuss the implications of neoliberalism for humanity whose influence has helped unleash the kind of chaotic society we now live in.
