About the Author

Richard Murphy is a UK chartered accountant. He was senior partner of a practicing firm and director of a number of entrepreneurial companies before becoming one of the founders of the Tax Justice Network in 2003. He now directs Tax Research UK and writes, broadcasts and blogs extensively.

Richard created the country-by-country reporting concept for multinational companies and has been credited with creating much of the debate on tax gaps in the UK and Europe. He also defined the term 'secrecy jurisdictions', now widely used in debates on offshore taxation. He has been described as the architect of 'Corbynomics' as part of the Corbyn campaign for leadership of the labour party.

Richard is joint author of Tax Havens, The True Story of Globalisation and sole author of The Courageous State. In 2015 he became Professor of Practice in International Political Economy at City University, London.

Reviews

"He has done the impossible: writing a book on tax that is not the literary equivalent of a handful of sleeping pills... A brief but critically important book. It needs to be read by politicians and journalists as a matter of urgency" -- Marcus Chown * Times Higher Educational Supplement *
"Richard Murphy is a rare voice of sanity at a time of economic madness. We desperately need an alternative to austerity - and with a few more Murphys, we'll get it." -- Owen Jones, author of The Establishment
"Conventional economists have run out of ideas. But Richard Murphy abounds with them. He writes with electric clarity about what went wrong and what could be done to put things right. He is a new economic thinker, and guided by a sharp and practical accountant's eye he knows where the money is hidden, who has it and how to release it. Murphy is is as courageous as he says our politicians should be." -- Polly Toynbee * The Guardian *
