Oxfam (2016) ‘The Hidden Billions: How Tax Havens Impact Lives at Home and Abroad’ Oxfam Research Reports. We saw in a previous lecture ( Lecture 7 ) that the European Commission had investigated the Apple Corporation, and found it to have paid only 0.005% tax on its global profits in 2014. Apple is now being pursued for US$14.6 billion dollars in unpaid taxes. This week’s reading is a 2016 research report from the respected charity and advocacy group Oxfam, which examines the extent and consequences of corporate strategies of tax avoidance. Clearly, such financial strategy is extremely lucrative for individual corporations and their owners – but how widespread is it and what are the costs to governments and wider populations?

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
