Corruption: The New Normal
Aug 07, 2020 Season 1 Episode 6
WG Film

The Filmmaker and the Advocate take a dive into dark money – money made from illicit activities like drug trafficking, refugee smuggling, and illegal arms sales. In PUSH-the film Italian journalist and author of Gomorrah, Roberto Saviano, explains that “it’s in the tax havens where legal and illegal capitalism meet and merge”. In other words, tax havens that were originally set up to hide criminal money, are now a natural part of any global business. With 80% of corrupt money landing in real estate, Fredrik and Leilani discuss how dark money drives up the cost of housing, and other effects on urban centres, particularly in cities like London, UK. The podcast releases new clips of Saviano and Queen’s Counsel Simon Farell who discuss how criminal money exits and enters a place like London which they identify as the world's capital of criminal money.
