    This is BIG! ? as you?ll read. It?s a special report prepared by the UK paper, The Guardian, and the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, so it has a UK focus. But the fact the story has been so heavily resourced by a mainstream paper is enough to send shockwaves around the global super-rich community. Remember: once one domino falls, the others follow?

    The reporting team trawled millions of emails to show how fortunes are stashed in British Virgin Islands, a far-flung territory that runs on licensing fees from shadowy financial entities? You?ll find links to several equally revelatory breakout stories at the end of this introductory piece. There?s some big names in here and I feel this is just the beginning?

    To be nonsensical in a realistic way, they'll end up hiding assets in banks with physical locations on a space station or celestial body off of earth one day.

    Nothing in the long run will come of figuring out who the ones with the money are except knowing who are guilty. But, at this level of the game, what is law?

    There will always be a class of massively wealthy people working together to maintain their wealth(using technology, education, and labor they took from the "little people" to secure their position, hilariously enough).



    eh, whatever, it's been like this for ever. it will change when it does.
