Germany sides with tax havens in transparency fight

Posted by: Nick Shaxson in: Thoughts

I have just posted an article on the EU Observer blog, which follows on from an earlier, longer one I published. It wonders why Germany, which has long been a proponent of financial transparency in Europe, appears to have crossed over to the side of the tax havens. Read the article here.

Meanwhile, this cartoon (courtesy of here) provides a succinct summary of the substance of what has been going on. (The Rubik referred to in my article is in the ‘z’ portion.)

And there’s another nice cartoon in this vein, here (from the same source.)
