First broadcast Apr 6, 2017, Inside Track #11 is available for listening over on Mixcloud.
Topics discussed include:
Gibraltar: NPR report on Gibraltar’s rebranding of itself as ‘low-tax’, rather than a tax haven, and the colony’s links to the law firm at the centre of The Panama Papers.
HSBC: Nicholas Wilson, aka Mr Ethical, has waged a long campaign, at great personal cost, against HSBC. On his blog, he identifies the ‘corporate Panopticon‘ that HSBC uses to shield its wrongdoing from both criminal accountability and public notice.
Mississippi prisons: We opened the show by discussing the historical development of the Mississippi prison system, and how little things have changed more than a century later. Counties bemoan state ‘theft‘ of their prisoners, while commissaries price-gouge prisoners’ families.
