Today on Your Call: What can we learn from UK Uncut?


On today’s Your Call, we’ll speak with the group that has successfully pressured multinationals to pay taxes. In the United States , the conversation is dominated by the deficit, while tax loopholes are rarely mentioned. A recent study found that tax havens cost state governments in the US $40 billion a year. What will it take to raise awareness about tax dodgers? Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org. How are tax havens affecting the economy? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:
