Naomi Fowler ■ Tax Justice video: How can we avoid another crisis? Expert panel discussion
In this video we hear fascinating presentations and discussion from an expert panel on how another global financial crisis can be avoided, ten years after the first. They focus on the UK, not only on the financial sector itself and the finance curse, but also on the role of the wider financial system, considering a range of factors including debt levels, the need for economic redistribution, and the ‘race to the bottom’ between nations on tax and regulation. Well worth watching. To see the powerpoint slides that accompany the presentations click here.
The panel discussion took place in September 2017 and is moderated by Juliette Garside financial correspondent at the Guardian, specialising in tax and offshore investigations, who has written about the Panama Papers, the Swiss Leaks exposé, and the financial affairs of David Cameron’s family. Those presenting and on the panel discussion afterwards are:
Daniel Mügge, Professor of Political Arithmetic at the University of Amsterdam. He analyses the political economy of macroeconomic indicators and the political origins of the formulas through which we calculate them.
Richard Murphy, a chartered accountant and a political economist, an anti-poverty campaigner and tax expert. He is Professor of Practice in International Political Economy at City University, London and Director of Tax Research UK. He is the author of a number of books, including The Joy of Tax.
Daniela Gabor, Professor of Economics and Macro-Finance at University of the West of England and an expert on critical central banking, collateral intermediation, shadow banking, IMF, capital controls and transnational banking.
Nicholas Shaxson, writer and investigative journalist, and author of Treasure Islands, a hugely influential book about the global financial system. In 2012 the International Tax Review named him as one of its “Global Tax 50” most influential people in international tax.
This was part of the 10 Years After the Crash series of events organised by Promoting Economic Pluralism which teamed up with various organisations to stage a series of events in the UK, which you can read about here.
