So tax evasion has the people of Iceland angry. They seem to be the first nation to get angry about economic injustice and actually have something done about it.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008
I imagine their PM will actually resign, but we'll see.
As far as I understand this whole revelation, is that the anonymous hacker only uncovered the mass of documents from 1 law firm in Panama. Just 1.
Yet, not all the documents have been released by Wikileaks. 149 out of 11.5 million
How deep is this problem? Very. I don't think it's much to assume that there are many more law firms/ shell companies providing similar services for very wealthy individuals all around the world.
The problem is gathering the evidence to hold the individuals responsible. Will the current evidence be use to pursue further investigation if not prosecution?
This is still yet only one broken facet to the world's economy problem. If anything can be done by the general public, it's being more vocal and reminding the governments of their responsibilities IMO.
