Title Capital without borders : wealth managers and the one percent

Title Capital without borders :
Author Harrington, Brooke, 1968- author.
Publication Date(s) 2016
Format: Books
Summary Capital without Borders will offer the first in-depth, cross-national examination of the wealth management profession: an extremely powerful professional group about which little is known, except that it controls large flows of capital around the world and has a significant impact on growing wealth inequality. With Oxfam estimating that 1 percent of the global population will own more than half the world's assets by 2016, and policymakers voicing increasingly urgent concerns about the political impact of inequality, this book offers a timely look at the evolution and activities of this central group of players. To understand the workings of their profession, and its complex legal and financial innovations, the author spent two years training to become a wealth manager herself. This experience gave her unique access to practitioners and their methods, and the opportunity to conduct over 60 interviews with wealth managers in 17 countries, from Switzerland to the British Virgin Islands, and from Singapore to South Africa. The findings shed light on the dynamics of growing world wealth inequality, and how they are fueled by political and economic forces. The research will inform ongoing debates about globalization and financialization, in part by making abstract issues concrete and easy to understand for a general readership. Capital without Borders explains the use of offshore banks, shell corporations, and trusts to hide billions in private wealth not only from taxation, but from all manner of legal obligations--including to creditors and family members. Such insights will be of interest not only to scholars and policy-makers, but to anyone interested in the world of wealth and high finance.-- Provided by publisher

Format: Books
URL: Cover image
Summary "Over four decades and a multitude of books, "Colonel" Glen Baxter has built a world and a language all his own--slightly familiar, decidedly abnormal, irresistibly funny. Have you felt the terror of a failed Szechuan dinner? Have you seen what happens atprecisely 6:15? Do you know where the beards are stored? Either way, this is the book for you. Celebrated by everyone from John Cleese to Ed Ruscha, Baxter's drawings are a delicious stew of pulp adventures, highbrow high jinks, and outright absurdity: brave men tremble before moussaka, schoolgirls hoard hashish, and the world's fruits are in constant peril. Wimples abound. This new selection brings together highlights from the full sweep of his long career and is sure to enchant both confirmed Baxterians and those who are in dire need of an introduction"-- Provided by publisher.
