Do Tax Havens Cause Poverty?

Download: Audio

Speaker(s): John Christensen, Felicity Lawrence; Nick Mathiason; Dr Attiya Waris
Chair: Professor Martin Albrow

Recorded on 30 April 2009 in New Theatre, East Building.

Defenders of tax havens argue they provide vital financial services for international trade, and that most comply with money-laundering regulations and have juridical co-operation treaties. This panel will explore the issues surrounding tax havens, in particular their impacts on poor people.
