Video: Michael West on the scandal engulfing PricewaterhouseCoopers

June 18, 2023

The Senate Finance and Public Administration References Committee has uncovered explosive evidence about the PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) secrets-for-sale scandal.

What went wrong at PwC and why is it such a big deal for democracy?

Suzanne James talks to investigative journalist Michael West about the PwC scandal and the unsustainability of the "Big 4 government" consultancy model.

The scandal, triggered by a Senate inquiry led by South Australian Greens Senator Barbara Pocock, has big ramifications for corporate consultancy.

The interview explores the global reach of KMPG, Deloitte, Ernst & Young and PwC, their lack of regulation and disclosure requirements, and why they are the very antithesis of democracy itself.
