The Paradise Papers

    Listen 35:28

    The Paradise Papers, millions of leaked documents from the Bermuda law firm Appleby, detail the ways that the wealthy and powerful hide their money in offshore tax havens.  The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) have poured through the documents and found how celebrities, politicians, and business leaders like Wilbur Ross, Yuri Milner, Bono, Queen Elizabeth, as well as corporations like Apple and Nike, use these offshore vehicles to evade paying taxes. This hour, we’ll discuss what the Paradise Papers reveal and their global impact with JESSE DRUCKER, a reporter for The New York Times who is also part of the ICIJ Paradise Papers investigative team.
