Documentary: STEALING AFRICA: How much profit is fair?
Duration 58 minutes: This is a case of extreme inequality. It is also a case of how countries like Zambia with enourmous resources continue to enrich others whilst thier people see little benefits of their own blessings. It is a case of how the global tax system works. A very sad case and possibly one of the worst I have come across depicted in a documentary.
This is how the film makers describe the documentary:
Rüschlikon is a village in Switzerland with a very low tax rate and very wealthy residents. But it receives more tax revenue than it can use. This is largely thanks to one resident – Ivan Glasenberg, CEO of Glencore, whose copper mines in Zambia are not generating a large bounty tax revenue for the Zambians. Zambia has the 3rd largest copper reserves in the world, but 60% of the population live on less than $1 a day and 80% are unemployed. Based on original research into public documents, the film describes the tax system employed by multinational companies in Africa.
