"This case is about kleptocracy in terms of public officials helping themselves to public assets or having offshore wealth that they can't explain, may be due to corruption and bribery. And for many countries in the developing world ... kleptocracy, corruption is a more important issue than just tax dodging."

– James S. Henry, senior fellow at Columbia University's Center for Sustainable International Investment and a senior adviser to the Tax Justice Network, on how the world's richest people have hidden $21 trillion to $32 trillion in tax havens

Democracy Awakening Actions Demand Reforms to Rein in Big Money's Influence in U.S. Politics

MP3 Interview with Margrete Strand Rangnes, executive vice president, Public Citizen, conducted by Scott Harris

democracy

With the almost daily bombast and insults emanating from Republican presidential candidate and real estate billionaire Donald Trump, the 2016 election campaign has been more a source of crude media entertainment than an informed national debate about public policy and the future of the country.
