Panama Paper: The story of how the rich and powerful hide their money by Bastian Obermayer and Frederik Obermaier
Over the last decade, we have gone from 'Occupy Wall Street' to 'Eat the Rich'. While we think Capitalism has its problems, we seldom put in the work to actually analyse these problems. This book covers some of the biggest names in the world and is undoubtedly one of the finest works of investigative journalism of the 21st century. This book answers questions like how do little islands with no governance and minimal resources become tax havens and bases to some of the biggest companies in the world. How do janitors in these islands become directors at companies?
The Kennedys are the closest it comes to American royalty. In this book, a nephew of John and Bobby becomes president and faces personal and professional turmoil when a terrorist plot destroys his family and a principled protest for nuclear disarmament wrecks havoc in the Big Apple. Puzo, in his characteristic style delivers back stabbings, vile acts in the name of honour, and cold blooded acts of violence.
