The world is being rocked by the release of the Panama Papers. This collection of information contains 11.5 million files collected by the law firm of Mossack Foreseen in conjunction with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists(ICIJ). Among the revelations is:
Russian leader Vladimir Putin has $2 billion trail of money which he did not obtain from just the President’s salary.
Some of his key assistants have offshore billion dollar funds
Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has at least a billion.
Ukraine President Petro Porshenko has gobs of money.
Alaa Mubarak, son of the former President of Egypt has a few hundred million.
Heck, even the father of British PM David Cameron has gobs of money stashed in the Bahamas and never pays taxes.
Did you ever get the feeling the wealthy lead lives that are somewhat different from ours?
