S3E8: Hold­ing Pow­er Account­able with Inves­tiga­tive Journalism

This episode explores what the Pan­do­ra Papers reveal about wealth and the gov­er­nance of a glob­al finan­cial sys­tem. What are the com­mon strate­gies adopt­ed by wealthy com­pa­nies, indi­vid­u­als, and orga­ni­za­tions to evade tax account­abil­i­ty? How have democ­ra­cies across the world respond­ed to the rev­e­la­tions of the Pan­do­ra Papers? And what mod­els are avail­able for pub­licly-ori­ent­ed inves­tiga­tive jour­nal­ism that can hold pow­er accountable?
