Event description

Description

It's estimated that at least $7.6 trillion or the equivalent of almost 10% of the world’s GDP is currently held in tax havens. By hiding their wealth offshore, the ultra-wealthy and corporations are able to escape tax, regulations and even criminal laws. The harmful impact of tax havens on global inequality is now widely understood, but their impact on our everyday lives can still seem distant and abstract.

Bringing together award-winning author and investigative journalist Oliver Bullough and a panel of leading social scientists and activists, this event discusses the impact of offshore cash on our daily lives, from lost tax revenues and spending cuts in local government, to the use of criminal capital to inflate property prices. Join us for a discussion with some of the leading voices on offshore wealth as they outline in concrete terms what tax havens mean for us and what can be done.
