In this podcast, a look at how financial transaction taxes can protect us from finance sectors dragging our economies down. Plus: the Swiss referendum -- taxpayers have refused to pick up the tab for corporate tax 'reforms'. What does that mean for one of the world's biggest tax haven players? Also, we discuss President Trump's valentine gift for kleptocrats and the extractives industry as he repeals anti-corruption regulations -- the criminal race to the bottom is on. And, the influence of dark money, the experts in distorting democratic debate and the results of the 2017 Transparify report.

Featuring: Professor Avinash Persaud, chair of Intelligence Capital and author of Improving Resilience, Increasing Revenue: the case for modernising the UK's stamp duty on shares, David Hillman of the Robin Hood Tax Campaign and John Christensen of the Tax Justice Network. Produced and presented by Naomi Fowler for the Tax Justice Network.
