Over the weekend many of the world's biggest newspapers broke a massive story about how the giant Swiss bank Credit Suisse facilitated the hiding of billions of dollars' worth of assets in its accounts. Some of the account holders were oligarchs, drug dealers, and potentates. It’s a huge embarrassment for the bank – which denies any wrongdoing but it shines a spotlight once again on Swiss banking. 

Joe spoke to  Richard Murphy from the Tax Justice Network who has spent decades focusing on aggressive tax avoidance and sometimes evasion.

Also Kathleen Brooks from Minera FX spoke to Joe about how the market will react to the developing situation in Ukraine.
