Google Trends chart shows lack of interest in VAT carousel fraud vs tax avoidance, despite the sums involved (looking UK searches only).

Isn't this just capture familiarity with specific types of tax crime? "Tax evasion" and "tax fraud" both top "tax avoidance"

What I’m asking is: why wasn’t there a big media hoo-ha around carousel fraud? Why isn’t the loss of 100s of €bn perceived as a scandal?

I think you are looking for something that you shouldn't expect to find. I suggest spikes correlate to mass media coverage, nothing else>

not enough of the public know (or want to know) about a specific fraud such as a VAT carousel. And there is no reason they should.

Double Irish structures are pretty damn obscure, but that hasn’t stopped them hitting the headlines...

Sure, & when they are headlines, there will be a spike on google search trends. Other than that, the volume of searches will be negligible

Gives a base to my intuitive feeling that public see avoidance (by rich and cos) as key test of the tax system. Not evasion or criminality.
