#65 A Financial Column for Supervillains
BuzzFeed's Scaachi Koul and Islamic Monthly's Davide Mastracci on the Panama Papers, Jon Kay's about piece political correctness keeping down the poor and Heather Mallick's latest column on diversity.

Guest host Scaachi Koul of BuzzFeed is joined by Islamic Monthly’s Davide Mastracci.

The Financial Post thinks the frenzy over the Panama Papers is sensational, but has advice if your offshore tax haven is outed.

Jonathan Kay makes the case in the Walrus that political correctness is hurting the poor.

And Davide recounts how a piece he wrote led to the Toronto Star’s Heather Mallick calling herself “practically transgender” in terms of race.
