Over Here and Undertaxed: Multinationals, Tax Avoidance and You
A book by Richard Murphy
In this 30,000 word ebook, Richard Murphy, one of the most highly respected economic commentators in the UK, examines how this situation came about, who the villains of the piece are and why. He goes on to look at potential solutions and offers ways in which the story must change in the face of growing public awareness, which politicians and companies will ignore at their peril as taxpayers vote with their feet.
