Not all the money from tax havens, fortunately, has as dark an origin as others. But it is a clear injustice that those who have more pay less than those who have less. The capital market is global, we need some form of global governance. At the moment, the efforts of the G20 to avoid bank secrecy have not borne fruit. A high percentage of world wealth does not tax. Not even the European Union has a common list of tax havens.
Pope Francis quoted a few weeks ago a phrase of St. John Chrysostom: “not sharing the goods with the poor means robbing them.” The sentence is a rabid current when talking about tax evasion, because taxes help the poor to be less poor, to evade them is to steal the poor.
