The Price We Pay March 4, 2015


Over one-half of the world’s stock of money is beyond reach of public treasuries, placing the tax burden on the middle class and the poor.  This smart, eye-opening, incendiary film by Canadian filmmaker Harold Crooks (“The Corporation”; “Surviving Progress”) examines the dark history and present-day reality of big business tax avoidance which has seen multinationals deprive governments of trillions of dollars of tax revenues by stashing their profits in offshore havens; money that could be well-spent on providing services for the citizens of the countries they operate in.  Featuring interviews with leading economists (including Thomas Piketty), tax justice campaigners and former finance and technology industry insiders juxtaposed with outrageous footage of CEOs trying to defend their big name corporations when under questioning for tax evasion by British parliamentarians.
