The pope supports tax justice
Now we also note a new article in The Observer newspaper about this, entitled "Pope attacks tax havens for robbing poor."
The article also quotes John Christensen:
"This shows that one of the world's most influential institutions realises that central to any attempt to reform the world's financial system must be a recognition that trust can only flow once radical steps to improve transparency and disclosure are taken."
And the newspaper also notes:
"The Pope's stance on tax havens is part of a growing trend. President-elect Barack Obama has vowed to close loopholes that see US citizens avoid an estimated $100bn in taxes each year. And last month Alistair Darling announced a fundamental review of 'offshore centres' under UK jurisdiction."
