We talk with Chuck Collins about the wealth defense industry, and how it helps the very rich to preserve their wealth by hiding it in tax shelters in havens like the US. This industry has been very effective in changing laws regarding wealth hoarding. We also discuss the Pandora Papers, recently released. Chuck Collins is the Director of the Program on Inequality and the Common Good.
We discuss with Edgar Villanueva, Chair of the Board of Directors of Native Americans in Philantrophy, about practice of philantrophy, and how it is fundamentally unjust. What appears charitable is often racist, classist, and support the status quo. It deprives tax dollars from communities, in favor of 'pet' projects, rather than where needed.
