In Ruschlikon, a sleepy village in Switzerland, the wealthy residents are receiving more tax revenue than they can use since the arrival of Ivan Glasberg, CEO of commodity giant Glencore. Yet in Zambia, where Glencore owns a majority stake in the country’s biggest copper mining operations, tax is an issue that’s contributing to its poverty.

Zambia has the third largest copper reserves in the world, but 60% of the population live on less than $1 a day and 80% are unemployed. How do multinationals work the tax system and operate in Africa?

This film was created as part of the Why Poverty? campaign.
