Part 1 on how tax justice can help address systemic racism in the US. Plus: did you know Britain’s slave owners compensation loan was only settled by the government in 2015 on behalf of taxpayers? The legacy of centuries of institutionalised racism is that a wealth chasm has been created between black and white communities. The City of London in Britain itself built its wealth from slavery and empire. Still today, major finance sectors have extractive business models, that impoverish some of the world’s poorest nations. And financial secrecy is another form of empire. So how can we think about combining tax justice and reparations? Keval Bharadia‘s work on a super tax on the $8 trillion a day financial markets could help show the way. And financial institutions must have independent slavery money audits. For those financial institutions now coming forward and offering what they’re calling reparations funds, how do we ensure that these funds are large, they’re targeted to the right places and they’re ongoing?
