Nicholas Shaxson is a British author, activist, journalist, investigator, former guest on the podcast and most importantly, author of the wonderful book and subject of this podcast, Treasure Islands.

Shaxson is one of the most influential people to have blown the lid off the cancerous influence tax havens and offshore finance have upon the world.

I think Treasure Islands is so significant because for me it explained the foundational knowledge of everything that informs Jim Henry’s Blood Bankers, Bradley Hopes Billion Dollar Whale, Oliver Bullough’s Moneyland and as well, upcoming guests, John Perkins and Bill Browder.
