Tax Wars

Tax Wars

It is estimated that US$ 600 billion in tax revenue are lost each year due to tax abuses by multinational companies and wealthy individuals. The pandemic and the war in Ukraine have shed an unprecedented light on the harsh realities of growing income inequality in a globalised economy. Economists and politicians such as Joseph Stiglitz, Eva Joly, Thomas Piketty and Jayati Ghosh are demanding that multinationals pay their taxes. By following their struggle and exploring possible avenues for recovering hidden wealth, Tax Wars sheds light on the underlying mechanisms and trends in the fight for global tax justice.
