TJN adviser talks Romney, Cayman on Democracy Now

TJN Senior Adviser Jack Blum talks on Democracy Now about the offshore escapades of US Republican candidate and private equity mogul Mitt Romney. Latest news: his tax returns reveal a Swiss bank account, albeit one that he’s already closed, along with accounts in Cayman (which we recently blogged and in Bermuda.)

Blum also appears in “We’re Not Broke,” a documentary that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. The film examines widespread corporate tax evasion in the United States and the increasing role of offshore tax havens.

For more on Romney’s private equity background, see our recent blog looking at the private equity industry. And for a bit of fun poked at Romney, try this.
