Has foreign ‘dark money’ undermined democracy as we know it? And can a solution lie in a smarter understanding of financial flows?

Tom Keatinge is joined by analyst Edward Lucas, Gemma Rogers of Fintrail and Josh Rudolph of the German Marshall Fund of the United States. This episode forms part of a series that examines the impact of the 2020 US elections on global illicit finance.
