Panama Papers: Financial Elite’s Attack on Worldwide Financial Privacy

AN INTERESTING ANALYSIS: Panama Papers: Financial Elite’s Attack on Worldwide Financial Privacy, by Jeff Berwick. One crime was surely committed last week:  the theft and release of hundreds of thousands of documents from a law firm in Panama. The thieves are so brazen that they have identified themselves; their main backers are the CIA (USAID) and George Soros.

…the leak of this information was an attack on enemies of the financial elite’s.

Nary an American was named in the leak, with the exception of a few, like Tina Turner, who angered the establishment by renouncing her US citizenship to escape being in the dragnet of … the IRS.

One was Iceland’s Prime Minister (now ex-Prime Minister as he seems to have resigned yesterday), Sigmundur Gunnlaugsson. Iceland was the only country in the world that held bankers accountable for their actions during the last financial crisis in 2008 and have jailed more than 50 bankers since …

And, of course, Vladimir Putin, a thorn in the side of the globalists …

The real motive perhaps:

… was to demonize anyone who tries to escape the global tax dragnet they are quickly trying to secure into place. … Month by month they are ratcheting down the ability to transact worldwide in the banking system.  Just try to open a bank account outside of your own tax farm (country) today and see what happens.  They’ll want to know what you had for breakfast amongst a flurry of paperwork, if they’ll even accept you at all. …

One of the officials of the Panamian law firm that was hacked was quoted in a Reuters article as saying: “We believe there’s an international campaign against privacy.”… Switzerland’s banking anonymity, also, has been destroyed by US judicial attacks.

Once business cannot guarantee anonymity via numbered bank accounts or shell companies, there are very few ways in the world that individuals can conduct transactions away from the multiple prying eyes of government.

Yet the exposed did not break laws:

Yet, the grand majority of the people exposed by the Panama Papers are not criminals. They broke no laws, they just had companies or bank accounts in other countries.
