The Taxcast: Edition 48, December 2015

We get some insights into the usually closed world of the wealth managers who serve the super rich. Also: on a par with Kissinger being awarded the Nobel Peace prize? We discuss the British Banker's Association getting one of their own into the Treasury, why Facebook's Mark Zuckergberg's $35 billion 'charity' pledge isn't what it seems, and the anonymous survey of accountants that reveals corruption is rife and the self-regulating profession can no longer be trusted. Plus more scandal and unique analysis.

Featuring: The Tax Justice Network director John Christensen, Associate Professor of Copenhagen Business School Brooke Harrington

Produced and presented by @Naomi_Fowler for the Tax Justice Network. Also available on iTunes.

"tax avoidance was really only the tip of the iceberg....really what Wealth Managers do extends much more generally to law avoidance in general and that creates problems of legitimacy for whole governments" Brooke Harrington

[In accountancy] "we have a level of professional integrity that is virtually non-existent...societies now need to protect themselves"
John Christensen
