By Bullough, Oliver
From the ruins of Kiev to the Bond-villain lairs of Knightsbridge and Central Park, something has gone wrong with the system of the world. Join the investigative journalist Oliver Bullough on a journey into the universe of the lawless, stateless superrich, where third-world klept...ocrats rub shoulders with terror financiers, captains of industry and western heads of state. Learn how the institutions of the United States and Europe have become money-laundering operations, climbing over one another in a scramble to sell off the foundations of their own stability. Discover the true cost of being open for business, no matter the customer. Meet the dictators. Meet their awful children. And find out how activists around the world are fighting to put the genie of unlimited power plus zero responsibility back in its bottle.Read more
