A two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist takes us inside the world revealed by the Panama Papers, a landscape of illicit money, political corruption, and fraud on a global scale. A hidden circulatory system flows beneath the surface of global finance, carrying trillions of dollars from drug trafficking, tax evasion, bribery, and other illegal enterprises. This network masks the identities of the individuals who benefit from these activities, aided by bankers, lawyers, and auditors who get paid to look the other way. In Secrecy World, the Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter Jake Bernstein explores this shadow economy and how it evolved, drawing on millions of leaked documents from the files of the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca—a trove now known as the Panama Papers—as well as other journalistic and government investigations. Bernstein shows how shell companies operate, how they allow the superwealthy and celebrities to escape taxes, and how they provide cover for illicit activities on a massive scale by crime bosses and corrupt politicians across the globe. Bernstein traveled to the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, and within the United States to uncover how these strands fit together—who is involved, how they operate, and the real-world impact. He recounts how Mossack Fonseca was exposed and what lies ahead for the corporations, banks, law firms, individuals, and governments that are implicated. Secrecy World offers a disturbing and sobering view of how the world really works and raises critical questions about financial and legal institutions we may once have trusted.

Cum am găsit miliardele ascunse ale unor premieri, dictatori, funcționari FIFA, șefi de concerne și magnați – și banii secreți din cercul intimilor lui Putin „Inegalitatea de venituri este una dintre problemele definitorii ale vremurilor noastre. Ne afectează pe toți, din lumea întreagă. Dezbaterea despre accelerarea sa bruscă s-a dezlănțuit de mulți ani, iar politicienii, oamenii de știință și activiștii sunt neputincioși în a opri acest fenomen, în ciuda numeroaselor discursuri, a analizelor statistice, a câtorva proteste firave și a dezvăluirilor ocazionale. Totuși, o întrebare rămâne: de ce? Și de ce acum? Documentele Panama furnizează un răspuns convingător la aceste întrebări: corupția masivă, generalizată. Și nu este o coincidență că răspunsul vine de la o firmă de avocatură. [...] Impactul colectiv al acestor eșecuri [al băncilor, al autorităților de reglementare financiară și fiscale, al instanțelor judecătorești, al instituțiilor media, al profesiunilor juridice] este o eroziune completă a standardelor etice, care conduce în cele din urmă la un nou sistem pe care continuăm să îl numim capitalism, dar care este echivalent cu sclavia economică. În acest sistem – sistemul nostru –, sclavii nu știu care le este statutul, nici cine le sunt stăpânii, care există într-o lume aparte, unde lanțurile intangibile sunt ascunse cu grijă într-un maldăr de limbaj judecătoresc inaccesibil. Oribila magnitudine a pagubelor aduse lumii ar trebui să ne trezească pe toți. Dar atunci când e nevoie ca un avertizor de integritate să dea alarma, este un motiv de și mai mare îngrijorare. Este un semnal că sistemele de verificare și echilibru ale democrației au dat greș, că prăbușirea este sistemică și că instabilitatea gravă ar putea fi chiar după colț. Așa că acum este timpul pentru a acționa cu adevărat, iar acest lucru începe prin a pune întrebări.“ – din manifestul lui John Doe „Dezvăluiri din interior despre cum guverne, corporații și grupuri de crimă organizată au folosit lumea secretă a jurisdicțiilor offshore pentru a se implica în fraude și furturi sistematice. Povestea aproape perfectă pentru secolul XXI – eșecul democrației, triumful puterii comerciale și lăcomie, lăcomie, lăcomie.“ – The Guardian

Die Geschichte des größten Daten-Leaks aller Zeiten beginnt spät am Abend mit einer anonymen Nachricht: „Hallo. Hier spricht John Doe. Interessiert an Daten?“ Bastian Obermayer, Investigativreporter der Süddeutschen Zeitung, antwortet sofort – und erhält Informationen, die ihn und seinen Kollegen Frederik Obermaier elektrisieren. Es sind die Daten hunderttausender Briefkastenfirmen. Sie bieten einen Einblick in eine bislang vollständig abgeschottete Parallelwelt, in der Milliarden verwaltet, verschoben und versteckt werden: die Gelder von großen Konzernen, von europäischen Premierministern und Diktatoren aus aller Welt, von Scheichs, Emiren und Königen, von Mafiosi, Schmugglern, Drogenbossen, von Geheimagenten, FIFA-Funktionären, Adligen, Superreichen und Prominenten. Um möglichst viele internationale Geschichten erzählen zu können, beschließen die beiden Journalisten, ein weltweites Netzwerk von Investigativreportern – das ICIJ – einzuschalten. Während sie selbst weiter nach Namen und Geschichten suchen, koordinieren sie gemeinsam mit dem ICIJ die Arbeit hunderter Journalisten. Fast ein Jahr arbeiten Reporter der wichtigsten Medien der Welt – etwa des Guardian, der BBC oder von Le Monde – unter höchster Geheimhaltung zusammen, um im Frühjahr 2016 die „Panama Papers“ zu veröffentlichen. Dieses Buch ist die faszinierende Geschichte einer internationalen journalistischen Recherche, die aufdeckt, was bis jetzt verborgen war: Wie eine kleine Elite, die sich niemandem mehr verantwortlich glaubt, ungeheure Vermögen versteckt. Es ist, als würde man in einem dunklen Raum das Licht anknipsen: Plötzlich ist alles sichtbar.

Rita Vásquez y J. Scott Bronstein, miembros de La Prensa, único medio de Panamá involucrado en la investigación de los Panama Papers, nos descubren los entretelones de esta operación periodística, que ha recibido el Premio Pulitzer 2017. Al estilo de un thriller policiaco, no faltan las desapariciones, sabotajes y amenazas que vivieron funcionarios y periodistas que estuvieron cerca de los clientes de la firma y de las investigaciones. ¿Por qué el abogado Jürgen Mossak -hijo de un oficial nazi- intenta disuadir a los directivos de La Prensa de que continúen con la indagación que involucra a su firma con procedimientos financieros presuntamente ilícitos? ¿De qué manera operaba el bufete para ofrecer sus servicios a clientes que, en ocasiones, resultaron ser criminales? ¿Cómo se montó la filtración masiva que llevó a descubrir el entramado? ¿Quiénes estaban interesados en que se dieran a conocer los nombres de cientos de personajes con capitales en paraísos fiscales? Si, al parecer, había interés en llegar hasta el fondo de la investigación, ¿por qué los autores tuvieron que hacer frente a la pérdida de amistades y relaciones profesionales? ¿Se sintieron amenazados estos periodistas? ¿Por qué Panamá fue señalado desde fuera y desde dentro? Los autores vieron también peligrar su seguridad. El caso terminaría enfrentando no sólo a Panamá contra el mundo, sino también a los panameños entre sí, aunque los autores reivindican a lo largo de las páginas a un país, el suyo. Ésta es una historia de múltiples sociedades, muchas de ellas sociedades peligrosas.

In the generations after emancipation, hundreds of thousands of African-descended working-class men and women left their homes in the British Caribbean to seek opportunity abroad: in the goldfields of Venezuela and the cane fields of Cuba, the canal construction in Panama, and the bustling city streets of Brooklyn. But in the 1920s and 1930s, racist nativism and a brutal cascade of antiblack immigration laws swept the hemisphere. Facing borders and barriers as never before, Afro-Caribbean migrants rethought allegiances of race, class, and empire. In Radical Moves, Lara Putnam takes readers from tin-roof tropical dancehalls to the elegant black-owned ballrooms of Jazz Age Harlem to trace the roots of the black-internationalist and anticolonial movements that would remake the twentieth century. From Trinidad to 136th Street, these were years of great dreams and righteous demands. Praying or "jazzing," writing letters to the editor or letters home, Caribbean men and women tried on new ideas about the collective. The popular culture of black internationalism they created--from Marcus Garvey's UNIA to "regge" dances, Rastafarianism, and Joe Louis's worldwide fandom--still echoes in the present.

Todo comenzó con un mensaje anónimo: «¿Te interesaría recibir unos datos? Quiero compartirlos». Bastian Obermayer, periodista del Süddeutsche Zeitung, respondió de inmediato que sí. Y empezó a recibir una serie de documentos que tanto a él como a su compañero Frederik Obermaier los dejaron perplejos. Ministros, presidentes, dictadores, jeques, emires, reyes, mafiosos, agentes secretos, funcionarios de la FIFA, aristócratas, artistas, ases del fútbol, multimillonarios... La fuente era anónima, pero los implicados no, en absoluto. Para procesar el inmenso volumen de documentación filtrada, los dos periodistas activaron una red mundial de reporteros de investigación. Durante casi un año, cerca de 400 periodistas de algunos de los medios más importantes del mundo han trabajado en riguroso secreto para analizar los millones de datos recibidos. Documentos que les abrían una ventana a un universo paralelo, hermético, en el que se gestionan, muchas veces se desvían y a menudo se esconden enormes cantidades de dinero. Esta es la fascinante historia de una investigación periodística internacional que ha revelado de qué modo una pequeña élite, que cree no tener que responder ante nadie, maneja fortunas ingentes libres de impuestos. Es como encender una luz en una habitación oscura: de repente todo está a la vista. «Un triunfo del periodismo.» BOB WOODWARD

Una llamada de alerta. Dos personajes: el secretario de Hacienda y el jefe del Servicio de Administración Tributaria se comunican para organizar el control de daños del escándalo internacional que se avecina: la mayor filtración de documentos en la historia del periodismo contemporáneo, Panamá Papers. El escándalo era inminente. Las fortunas ocultas y la evasión de impuestos que esta filtración revelaba incluía los nombres de acaudalados políticos, exfuncionarios públicos y empresarios mexicanos, entre ellos, el constructor “consentido” del sexenio, Juan Armando Hinojosa Cantú, quien –en cuanto supo que era blanco de la investigación por conflicto de intereses debido a la edificación de la Casa Blanca– movió su capital a los paraísos fiscales. ¿Cómo es posible que en México el 1% de la población concentre la riqueza mientras más de la mitad de los habitantes vive en condiciones de pobreza? ¿Dónde están almacenadas las grandes fortunas? ¿Acaso sus dueños pagan impuestos igual que el resto de los ciudadanos? Quizá la respuesta pueda encontrarse en alguna parte de los once millones de documentos que se filtraron del despacho panameño Mossack Fonseca. “No nos volverán a saquear”, dijo el presidente José López Portillo hace treinta y cuatro años. ¿Por qué nos siguen saqueando?, ¿cómo evitar que siga sucediendo? El tema de fondo no es la evasión fiscal sino la corrupción política que ha permitido que miles de millones de dólares mal habidos terminen ocultos en diversos paraísos fiscales.

Quiénes son los políticos, los empresarios y las celebridades argentinas que tienen firmas en paraísos fiscales, y qué es lo que buscan esconder en ellos. Mossack Fonseca era uno de los creadores de sociedades offshore más importantes del planeta hasta que, a comienzos de 2016, una megafiltración expuso los secretos de una red financiera global al servicio de la fuga de capitales, la evasión impositiva, el ocultamiento y el lavado de dinero. Los primeros archivos que dieron forma a los Panamá Papers revelaron un capítulo de la disputa entre la Argentina y los fondos buitres. Los acreedores reclamaban información sobre Lázaro Báez y los Kirchner. Sin embargo, el nombre que apareció fue el de Mauricio Macri, uno de los cinco presidentes en funciones mencionados entre los once millones y medio de documentos hackeados. En esa gigantesca e intrincada base de datos, figuran también varios integrantes del PRO, futbolistas, y los dueños, accionistas y directivos de las doscientas empresas más grandes del país, así como bancos, abogados y firmas contables de prestigio. Santiago O'Donnell, elegido por el Consorcio Internacional de Periodistas de Investigación que centralizó la cobertura de dimensión global, junto con Tomás Lukin, experto en el mundo offshore, pasaron meses cruzando información de firmas que son cáscaras vacías y directivos con nombres de paja. De esa compleja indagación surgió este libro fascinante que revela cómo se maneja el poder real y quiénes son los verdaderos dueños de la Argentina.

This book examines two types of transnational money laundering: the use of offshores and wire transfers to “invest” in real estate; and agribusiness, a nebulous activity that is difficult to regulate. The author also examines current international mechanisms to combat money-laundering; whether these efforts have been successful or unsuccessful; and whether multilateral instruments are an effective tool in the war against international organized crime. As national borders have opened and trade barriers have fallen, transnational crime has grown at unprecedented levels. The current situation, better revealed by the so-called “Panama Papers,” is a result of a lack of local cooperation in the investigations, prosecution, and/or extradition of criminals. Governments profit from ill-gotten wealth hosting international criminal enterprises in their own territories, thus providing a fertile ground for illicit practices, closing their eyes to the nexus among false or inappropriate identification, fraudulent records, corruption, and money laundering. If these types of transnational money-laundering are allowed to remain as they are currently treated, the shift in the financial paradigm, from centralized and regulated to decentralized and “unregulated,” would allow for the continuation of some of the most dangerous criminal activity. In this timely book, the author presents arguments that by “following the money,” capital movements involved in transnational money laundering through real estate and agribusiness can be examined, revealed, and understood.
