More in an occasional series, since we are busy again today. With particular thanks today to Offshore Watch.

Greece urged to tax the rich - Financial Times “The wealthy aren’t being made to pay up in this crisis in spite of all the government’s talk about justice,” said Antonis Adamopoulos, a student who was standing by a banner that read “Peoples of Europe, rise up”. (Perhaps he should join up with UKUncut.)

Zero-Ten is dead! - Tax Research. On an important development in Britain's Crown Dependencies.

Who is or are the “tax Taliban”? - Asset Adviser. (It's TJN, according to the Cayman Islands' spokesman in chief.) Hat tip: Richard Murphy. Travers, apparently, thinks that cracking down on the corruption of global markets is somehow "leftist."

How tax dodging cancels out aid - Alex Cobham, Financial Times, on a General Anti-Avoidance Rule, and implications for developing countries.

Cadbury and B&Q flagged as targets for tax protests - Marketing Magazine on UKUncut's next protests

Why the Obama tax deal with Republicans is insane - Correntewire (hat tip: Naked Capitalism.) On Tax Cut Experiment Number 1 in 1921, Tax Cut Experiment Number 2 in 1981. Tax Cut Experiment Number 3 from 2002, and the question "Why do tax cuts lead, counter-intuitively, to industrial decline, stagnant wages, and finally financial collapse?" Contains some fascinating insights.
