The Price of Offshore Revisited

A far-reaching new study suggests a staggering $21tn in assets has been lost to global tax havens. If taxed, that could have been enough to put parts of Africa back on its feet – and even solve the euro crisis. A report by the Tax Justice Network.

The Cost of Tax Abuse

Tax evasion costs countries around the world more than US$3.1 trillion annually. By tackling tax havens, governments can avoid painful austerity measures and invest in essential public goods like healthcare and education, says a new report by the Tax Justice Network.

Tax Havens Report

Tax havens, many of them British, are robbing the UK and developing countries alike of billions of pounds in government revenue every year - money that could be spent on public services and anti-poverty programmes, says a report by War on Want, PCS and the Tax Justice Network.

Employment, Globalization and Development

With global demand for imports waning, it is time to re-think the export-led growth economic model foisted onto developing countries in recent decades. Development strategies should instead focus on domestic markets, says a report by the UNCTAD Trade and Development Report 2010.

Taxing Banks

A tax on currency exchanges and derivatives of 0.005 percent could be implemented straight away and would raise £100 billion a year globally towards reducing government deficits and tackling poverty, says a report by Tax Research LLP.

Growth isn't Possible

Endless growth is pushing the planet’s biosphere beyond its safe limits. We urgently need to change our economy to promote well being, reduce resource consumption and live within its environmental budget, says a report by the New Economics Foundation.

The State of the World’s Indigenous Peoples

Indigenous peoples make up one third of the world’s poor and are often disproportionately affected by the economic globalisation. Governments should prioritise self-determination and land rights to protect indigenous communities and their knowledge, says a report by UN DESA.

The World Crisis - and Beyond

The development of globalised capitalism has led to financial, food and climate crises that threaten the regions of the world in different ways. This report compiles views raised at the 'Conference on Alternatives and Transformation Paths to Overcome the Regime of Crisis-Capitalism', by the Transnational Institute et al.

Getting Back on the Rails: The Private Sector and Development

Under the Washington Consensus, deregulation, liberalisation and privatisation were imposed on poor countries with scant regard for the social consequences. The private sector must be regulated to protect the poor from the shortcomings of the pursuit of profit, says a report by Christian Aid.

The Consumption Explosion: The Third UK Interdependence Report

Given the environmental limits of the planet, current levels of resource exploitation and waste production are unsustainable. The most pressing need is to end overconsumption in the rich world and to focus on eradicating poverty and reducing inequality, says a report by New Economics Foundation.
