Your Call's Media Roundtable: Offshore tax havens & the hidden wealth of the global elite

Jan 11, 2018

An estimated eight percent of the world’s household financial wealth is held in offshore tax haven. On this week’s media roundtable, we’ll speak with Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Jake Bernstein about his new book Secrecy World: Inside the Panama Papers Investigation of Illicit Money Networks and the Global Elite.

The book chronicles the evolution of the offshore world and details how tax havens let the super-rich and corporations hide their money to avoid paying taxes. 

Guest:

Jake Bernstein, two-time Pulitzer-prize winning journalist and author of Secrecy World: Inside the Panama Papers Investigation of Illicit Money Networks and the Global Elite
