Massive data leak exposes offshore financial secretsThey sought the utmost secrecy in offshore tax havens. But now some of the world's wealthiest citizens are having their undisclosed financial records laid bare.
An unprecedented leak of documents is revealing the closely guarded investment information of more than 100,000 people around the world, including hundreds of Canadians.
The article says that a database has been built that's about 162 times larger than the WikiLeaks diplomatic cables laying out the dirty stuff behind some the world's largest individual networths.
Some of the stuff that's getting reviewed/released seems kind of personal, and I really don't approve of that, but I do think this is much more relevant than the WikiLeaks cables, especially coming in the wake of the hot discussion on income equality in North America right now. It's going to be interesting to find out who's legitimate and who's not. And what's actually going to be done (or not done) about it.
