abstract
"Director Harold Crooks (Surviving Progress) blows the lid off the dirty world of corporate malfeasance with this incendiary documentary about the dark history and dire present-day reality of big-business tax avoidance, which has seen multinationals depriving goverments of trillions of dollars in tax revenues by harbouring profits in offshore havens. Over half the world's stock of money is now beyond reach of public treasuries. Nation states are being reshaped. Tax avoidance by the wealthy is paving the way to historic levels of inequality and placing the tax burden on the middle class and the poor. Crusading journalists, tax justice campaigners and former finance and technology insiders speak frankly about the accelerating trends that are carrying the world to an unsustainable future." -- Back cover.
