Mapping Tax Havens Around the World
The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists partnered with news organizations around the world, including the BBC, The New York Times, The Guardian, Le Monde, CBC, Le Soir, El País and Süddeutsche Zeitung, to investigate the secret offshore money system that businesses, politicians and wealthy individuals use to avoid paying taxes.
One outcome of all this work is an interactive map, ICIJ Offshore Leaks, that links to over 60 stories around the globe that resulted from the investigation. Users of the map can click on locations around the world to read the journalists' stories associated with that location. Another map view provides an overview of tax havens around the world and their popularity with the global tax dodging elite.
