Article in 'The Conversation': How governments are helping big companies pay less tax

Activity: OtherMedia (Other online)


Written with Gary Fooks, Corporate Criminologist, Aston University. Corporate tax policy says more about power than anything else.

Governments have come to accept that they hold fewer and fewer cards as capital has become more mobile.
