US: A Tax Haven (Part 1)
 
34:11
The public perception of tax havens as a tropical island with low tax rates is out-dated. The reality is that geography is irrelevant to low tax rates, lax regulation and financial secrecy. In fact, here in the United States, Delaware has faced allegations of operating as an "on-shore" tax haven. Leslie Wayne, author of the Sunday, July 1, 2012, New York Times article "To Delaware, With Love" joined this Seminar's panel to discuss the growth of tax havens in the US, focusing on Delaware. Discussants: Jack Blum, Chairman, Tax Justice Network USA Liane Schalatek, Associate Director, Heinrich Boell Foundation Leslie Wayne, Journalism Professor at Columbia and NYU (former reporter at New York Times) Rebecca Wilkins, Senior Counsel for Federal Tax Policy, Citizens for Tax Justice Moderator: Jo Marie Griesgraber, Executive Director, New Rules for Global Finance Three objectives of this Seminar: 1) Increase awareness of tax havens or "secrecy jurisdictions," especially the ones operating in the US; 2) Explain tax havens. How do they operate? What does the law say about tax havens? What new laws or regulations can rein in tax evasion and banking secrecy?; and 3) Discuss the impact of tax havens. Who benefits? Who loses? What is the impact on public goods, both globally and in the US context?

Ismaila Diallo on G20 Outcomes: Significance for Middle and Low Income Countries
 
11:44
At the G20 level, behind the political intrigue, a number of major economic reforms have developed in the last several years – notably on global tax policy and financial reform. These are positive developments, but there is growing concern that these reforms will not resolve the major challenges faced by non-G20 countries. The event brought together representatives from government and civil society to evaluate the outcomes from the G20 Summit in Brisbane, with a particular focus on what it means for Middle and Low Income countries. Ismaila Diallo, Technical Adviser on Tax Matters for the Ministry of Economy, Finance, and Planning of Senegal, served as a panelist for the event.

What Positive Role for Public-Private Partnerships? - Mansur Muhtar
 
09:20
Post-2015 Development Goals: What Positive Role for Public-Private Partnerships? The Intergovernmental Committee of Experts on Sustainable Development Finance has just concluded their report which is to be reviewed by the UN General Assembly in the coming months. The General Assembly, in turn, will identify the priorities and funding of Sustainable Development Goals which will become the focus of globally coordinated development funding and action. In the post-crisis world, all governments are strapped for finance, so the options for action contain many proposal related to coordination of private and public money to achieve the desired outcomes. Given the amount of financial liquidity available to the private sector, the approach looks like a win-win arrangement. On the other hand many civil society and development organizations have raised concerns about such arrangements, fearing that governments will carry the risks and the private partners the profits.
