For decades, a secret army of tax attorneys, accountants and wealth
managers has been developing into the shadowy Wealth Defence
Industry. These ‘agents of inequality’ are paid millions to hide
trillions for the richest 0.01%.
this book, inequality expert Chuck Collins, who himself inherited a
fortune, interviews the leading players and gives a unique insider
account of how this industry is doing everything it can to create and
entrench hereditary dynasties of wealth and power. He exposes the
inner workings of these “agents of inequality”, showing how they
deploy anonymous shell companies, family offices, offshore accounts,
opaque trusts, and sham transactions to ensure the world’s richest
pay next to no tax. He ends by outlining a robust set of policies
that democratic nations can implement to shut down the Wealth Defence
Industry for good.
shocking exposé of the insidious machinery of inequality is
essential reading for anyone wanting the inside story of our age of
plutocratic plunder and stashed cash.
