Just 0.001% of the world’s population — that’s one one-thousandth of one percent — or about 92,000 people have $10 trillion in assets stashed in tax havens.

In total, 10 million people worldwide hold offshore assets. The study shows that they total at least $21 trillion, possibly $32 trillion. That's about equivalent to the 2011 annual GDP's of the USA and Japan combined!

Where did this money come from? Well, that depends on how you account for capital formation. Does profit come from work or financial manipulation? The developed world used to favor the former, but work gets your hands dirty rather than getting you rich quickly. So, like earlier empires, the actual work is farmed out to colonies and the hugely enriching stuff kept at home, to wit: finance and the military might needed to enforce its extraction.

Concentration of wealth is the goal of empire once it becomes established, and the Anglo-American-NATO Empire is no different. Wealth extracted from colonies (dependent nations - from their viewpoint, stolen) is concentrated at the Empire's centres where it is further concentrated into the hands of a miniscule proportion of the population, who proceed in the manner outlined in this report

It is highly recommended for anyone seeking to understand the world they are currently surviving in.
