I really didn't know where to put this because it involves so many countries.

In what is believed to be one of the largest ever leaks of financial data, the Washington, D.C.-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists has received nearly 30 years of data entries, emails and other confidential details from 10 offshore havens around the world.

That's brilliant, hopefully more will come.

That's an encouragement for ordinary citizens to play crooky too... why should just the fat cats stay fat?

I suspect that the leak was courtesy of a certain Guy Fawkes mask wearing loose-alliance and the journos just took advantage of the leak.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Ordinary citizens would go to prison and the fat cats won't as usual.

Captialism is being paid for ones services and then using that payment in order to procure goods and other services.
It's a necessary process unless you want us to be reduced to a village system whereby the people who grow tomatoes trade them with the person who repairs their windows and so forth.

What this is is an abuse of a system, a manipulation of an unregulated and unsupervised system.

Unfortunately there's a law for the rich and a law for the rest of us. And it persists because people like Overpopulation just say thats the way it is without even considering alternatives.

At the end of the day a couple of rich people will go tho jail, a few others will be fine, and everything will be put under the carpet.

I wasn't saying that we should just live under this system for forever and just deal with the corruptness that comes from Capitalism. I'm saying that this is what comes from Capitalism. And yes it needs to be changed.
