Once upon a time, a government official who stole large amounts of money from the state budget could do little with it. Unless he bought a new car or a house, his options ended there, because the local market could not absorb the countless amounts of money. If he continued to steal, the finances would accumulate b, and he would be exposed to the risk of being caught. But later, several London bankers came up with a brilliant idea: to hide money in offshore areas, avoiding paying taxes. In this book, the famous investigative journalist Oliver Bullock sets out on a journey through Moneyland, a secret country where lawlessness and corruption are rampant. Bullo traces the ways in which political and business criminals have moved stolen funds around the world over the past three decades. He exposes the institutions in Europe and the US that have become money-laundering machines, tells how the rich evade scrutiny, looks for heroes - activists who are resisting corruption, and calls to join them."
