⚠️🇩🇪 Die Hetzkampagne gegen Reichelt zieht seine Bahnen. Zufall dass ausgerechnet wieder die üblichen Verdächtigen mitwirken, die die #Agenda2030 vollumfänglich und unterwürfig forcieren? Eher nicht.
Die "Investigativjournalistin" Katrin Langhans, die auch bei den #PanamaPapers und den kürzlich veröffentlichten #PandoraPapers mitgewirkt hat, wurde wegen ihrer Berichterstattung über 'Querdenker' mit einem Preis ausgestattet.
Was ein Zufall.
"Wir brauchen mehr Frauenquote"

@Davos Pia und ihre Propaganda.
Dieses Spiel ist so leicht zu durchschauen. 😎

Catching up on the #PandoraPapers? In the week since our 600+ journalism partners began publishing revelations from history's biggest offshore data leak, we’ve seen fallout all around the world.

Here’s a quick walk-through of key findings. #SundayRead 🧵
First of all, what do we mean by “offshore”?

The #PandoraPapers kick the door open on a secretive financial system that allows the wealthy and well-connected to set up covert companies across borders in tax havens, where the ownership of money and assets can be easily hidden.
🌴 In popular imagination, the offshore system is often seen as a far-flung cluster of palm-shaded islands.

The #PandoraPapers show that the offshore money machine operates in every corner of the planet, including the world’s largest democracies.

The #PandoraPapers make it clear that tax evasion is a systemic issue, which means govts need to act. Here are 5 things we should demand from the Canadian govt. THREAD 🧵
👉 Increase funding for the CRA to investigate international tax schemes.
Since the #PanamaPapers were revealed 5 yrs ago, the CRA hasn't charged a single person. It needs more resources & we need to ensure that @JustinTrudeau increases funding by $2.5bn over 4 yrs as promised.
👉 Introduce a public registry of beneficial ownership, promised in the last budget.

🚨 Here's a sobering fact about corruption in SL - One or more Sri Lankans have featured in almost every one of the major leaks associated with offshore tax havens from #PanamaPapers to #SwissLeaks and now #PandoraPapers. Go figure. 1/
Add to the fact that these leaks cover only a fraction of this massive industry and it begs the question - is corruption systemic or has it in fact become "endemic", or native to our system of political power and governance? 2/
This is why at the last general election my criteria was very simple - My ❌ for your Asset Declaration - and in my district of Colombo there was alas, only one solitary candidate. This needs to change. 3/

Deutsche Spuren in den #PandoraPapers: Die Deutsche Entwicklungsgesellschaft DEG soll eigentlich den Armen in aller Welt helfen. Sie unterstützt aber auch große Banken und verschafft so manchem wohlhabenden Eigentümer zusätzliche Gewinne. Ein Thread.
Die Deutsche Investitions- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft DEG ist eine Tochter der staatseigenen Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW) und mit vielen Milliarden Euro ausgestattet, um Entwicklungshilfe in Lateinamerika, Asien oder Afrika zu finanzieren. #PandoraPapers #DEG
Im Namen der deutschen Steuerzahler soll die DEG zum Beispiel kleine und mittelständische Unternehmer in armen Regionen fördern. Sie tummelt sich dafür allerdings auch in Steueroasen in der Karibik. #PandoraPapers

By now, you've likely heard about the #PandoraPapers - the landmark reporting on financial secrecy havens, corruption, and the hidden wealth brought to you by the @ICIJorg and its 140 media partners worldwide.…

1/ The main image for the ICIJ's Pandora Papers site, a tsunami
This isn't the ICIJ's first rodeo: they're the same consortium that brought us the #PanamaPapers and #ParadisePapers, leaks from the world's tax havens and the elite law and accounting firms that enable the wealthy and powerful to live by different rules from the rest of us.

Each of these leaks have been almost unimaginably large: millions of documents, the otherwise invisible paper-trail left by likewise unimaginably vast fortunes amassed by the 0.1%. The scale and scope of these secrets makes them too big for any one news org to report out.

In this thread, I'll be collecting resources that can help us understand the just-leaked #PandoraPapers, including on the underlying dynamics and what we might do in response:
1. First, what are the #PandoraPapers anyway?

A massive trope of leaked from offshore service provides from several countries - the Seychelles, Panama, Hong Kong, Belize, BVI, Cyprus, Switzerland and Dubai

The organising @ICIJorg set it out here:…
2. What are the main stories?

More like the #PanamaPapers than the #ParadisePapers, the #PandoraPapers reveal offshore investments and ownership structures of wealthy individuals, high-profile politicians and celebrities.

Key stories here:…

In 1997, Jacob Rees-Mogg's dad, William Rees-Mogg wrote the 'The Sovereign Individual: The Coming Economic Revolution & How to Survive & Prosper' in which he shared his prophetic views on capitalism & chaos, that have fascinating links to his son’s enthusiasm for Brexit.
The Sovereign Individual opens with a quote from Tom Stoppard’s play Arcadia: “The future is disorder.”

He wasn't wrong.

The book predicted that digital technology would make the world hugely more competitive, unequal & unstable. Societies would splinter. Taxes would be evaded.
Govt would gradually wither away, & welfare states “will simply become unfinanceable”.

In such a harsh world, only the most talented, self-reliant, technologically adept person – “the sovereign individual” – would thrive.

Libertarians across the world embraced this worldview.

When @b_obermayer & me @sz received the #panamapapers, we knew one day an even bigger leak would come.

Here it is: @ICIJorg #PandoraPapers.

It shows what we knew all along: #MossackFonseca was not one bad apple. The whole system is rotten.

So let’s talk about it. 1/5
But first: the #pandorapapers originate from 14 offshore providers, all around the world. There are some differences, but all in all it’s more or less the same: Their business is: selling secrecy for the superrich, the criminals & the crooks.

This is their biggest asset. 2/5
Politicians are the ones who promised to change that rotten system. We heard their promises now for years.
But the system is not only still in place - it is harboring an endless list of: politicians.

No surprise. Here’s why… 3/5

Séisme mondial.
35 chefs d’État & 130 milliardaires (Tony Blair, DSK, rock-stars etc) épinglés dans les #PandoraPapers pour avoir placé des milliers de milliards de $ à l’abri dans les paradis fiscaux : ils volent l'Etat et font sécession pour satisfaire leurs intérêts privés

Et désormais les #PandoraPapers : en moins de 10 ans, ces affaires illustrent combien le système financier international permet et encourage la criminalité en col blanc, en toute impunité.
En pratiquant l'#EvasionFiscale à grande échelle, chefs d'Etat, milliardaires, stars du showbiz piétinent l'intérêt général : ces milliards d'euros détournés sont autant de crèches, d'écoles, d'hôpitaux qui ne sont pas construits, et de politiques climatiques non menées.

A pocos meses de terminar su mandato, en 2002, el expresidente @AndresPastrana_ creó una empresa para cuidar su patrimonio familiar.

Tres años después, su compañía compró una firma en #Panamá que hoy aparece en los #PandoraPapers.
Abrimos hilo 🧵
La sociedad offshore Vanguard Investment, creada en Panamá a través de OMC Group, ofrece servicios “corporativos, administrativos y fiduciarios”.

Vanguard fue adquirida por Salatina Puyana y Cía., la empresa de Pastrana, en mayo de 2005 con capital de USD $ 10 mil.
Hasta 2016, las regulaciones panameñas permitían esconder el nombre de beneficiarios o dueños reales de las compañías.

Aunque no es delito ser parte de sociedades offshore, algunos aprovecharon el secretismo de estas estructuras para lavar dinero o evadir impuestos.
