On the MEN who stole the world

Posted by: Nick Shaxson in: Thoughts

The word ‘men’ was, for obvious reasons, the biggest query I (and my publishers) had about the subtitle for Treasure Islands: Tax Havens and the Men who Stole the World, but we felt it was appropriate. The offshore system has, by and large, though not exclusively, run by middle aged white men (well, ahem, I suppose I am one too.) Anyway, this story is perhaps not the best example of what I’m talking about, since it’s not about offshore finance, but I’ll use it because it’s topical, and it gives the general idea.
