Video – Follow the Money: Resource Flows and Tax Evasion

  1. Chair: Walter Turner (USA)
  2. Panelists: Bill Minter (USA), Liepollo Pheko (South Africa), Kristin Sundell (USA)

Specific Questions

  1. The companies involved in tax evasion, corruption, capital losses, and land grabbing are often little-known shell companies, with hidden transactions that are hard to understand and expose. In explaining these issues so that they have political impact, how can we bridge the gap between specialist researchers and the general public?
  2. Transparency and effective regulation require collaboration from governments in both rich and poor countries. How can campaigners exert pressure for action in this regard on both African and non-African governments?
