Paradise Papers (image: ICIJ)This week on CounterSpin: The millions of leaked documents dubbed the Paradise Papers bring some sunlight to an arena where secrecy is the point: the world of “offshore financial centers,” where a melange of the world’s wealthiest stash money, bilk governments and generally betray any notion of a social compact. It’s great reporting; it involves trillions of dollars. Now what? We speak with investigative economist and author James Henry.

Also on the show: After a man killed 26 people and wounded 20 more in a Texas church, and his demographic details signaled media would be going the “troubled individual” route, some have lifted up the relationship between mass killings and domestic violence, of which the Texas killer, like many before him, had a history. We talked about those connections after another mass shooting, last year in Orlando, Florida, with writer and activist Soraya Chemaly. We reaired some of that conversation this week.
