The Price We Pay

Corporate tax-dodging may have been in the news in recent years, but for how long has it been going on? Harold Crooks takes a thorough look at this ethically bankrupt practice, from its history in the City of London in the 1960s to its rise to prominence during the Thatcher/Reagan years. How are well-known multi-nationals able to keep their profits in off-shore accounts, denying governments access to trillions in tax revenue? Tax justice campaigners, journalists and former finance industry insiders walk us through a staggering tale about the sordid face of modern capitalism.
