Dir. Harold Crooks 
Documentary / 2014 / Canada / 93 mins / English  
"The Price We Pay" is inspired by Brigitte Alepin’s book "La Crise fiscale qui vient". Director Harold Crooks (who co-directed "Surviving Progress" with Mathieu Roy) blows the lid off the dirty world of corporate malfeasance with this incendiary documentary about the dark history and dire present-day reality of big-business tax avoidance, which has seen multinationals depriving governments of trillions of dollars in tax revenues by harboring profits in offshore havens. Tax havens, originally created by London bankers in the 50s, today put over half the world’s stock of money beyond reach of public treasuries.
