Tax Me If You Can

With rigor, and a dose of humor, Tax Me If You Can explains the mechanisms of tax havens and demonstrates how tax evasion, an essential cog in the neoliberal system, accelerates the growth of economic inequality. 

SYNOPSIS

The wealthiest individuals and companies have fewer and fewer scruples, and more and more means at their disposal, to escape taxation. And so, without any sense of guilt, they fuel the progressive ruin of wealth redistribution. With rigor and a certain amount of humor, this documentary explains the mechanisms of tax havens, reveals the politicians' rhetoric to combat them, and shows how tax evasion is not a flaw in the neoliberal system that we can live with, but one of its essential cogs that accelerate the growth of inequality.
