Last week TJN's director John Christensen visited the Isle of Man to speak at a packed public meeting on tax havens.
This was a rare and healthy airing of the issues which lie behind this island’s prosperity over the past 30 years, since the offshore structure was set up. The meeting was organised months earlier but the timing was spot-on: events unfolding on a daily basis hold massive significance for the Island.
