6 Things You Should Know About the $21 Trillion the World's Richest People Are Hiding In Tax Shelters
Continued from previous page

July 25, 2012 |
$21 trillion. That's how much the world's richest people are hiding in offshore tax havens worldwide. Or it may be more, as much as $32 trillion—the real amount is, of course, almost impossible to track.

While governments slash spending and lay off workers, citing a need for “austerity” because of the slow economy, the ultra-rich—fewer than 10 million people—have stashed an amount equal to the US and Japanese economies combined away from the tax man. This is according to a new report by the Tax Justice Network [3], and their findings are shocking. The lost tax revenue from offshore tax shelters, they note,“is large enough to make a significant difference to all of our conventional measures of inequality. Since most of the missing financial wealth belongs to a tiny elite, the impact is staggering.”

James S. Henry, who was former Chief Economist for McKinsey & Co. and is the author of the book The Blood Bankers [4] as well as articles for publications including The Nation and The New York Times, dug into information from the Bank for International Settlements, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the United Nations, central banks, and private sector analysts and found the outlines of the giant pool of cash floating in that nebulous location known as “offshore”.(And this is just money—the report leaves out things like real estate, yachts, art, and other forms of wealth the super-rich are hiding, untaxed, in offshore tax havens.) Henry refers to it as a “black hole” in the world economy and notes that,“despite taking pains to err on the conservative side, the results are astonishing.”

There's a lot of information to wade through in this report, so we've broken out 6 things you should know about the money the world's richest are keeping from the rest of us.

1. Meet The Top .001%

“By our estimates, at least a third of all private financial wealth, and nearly half of all offshore wealth, is now owned by world’s richest 91,000 people– just 0.001% of the world’s population,” the report says. Those top 91,000 have about $9.8 trillion of the total estimated in this report—and fewer than ten million people account for the whole pile of cash.

So you’re an American 14 year old Olympic champion, and you win Olympic Gold. Everyone cheers your accomplishments. Yeahh!!!!
So what happens when you come home to the land where you’re told that your success wasn’t something that you did on your own?
PAY UP BABY! The IRS wants you to fork over $9 THOUSAND for each Gold medal you won.$5400 for each Silver, and $3500 for each bronze. Oh, and don’t forget to pay for the metal value of the medal itself.
Maybe that explains why Phelps isn’t doing well. Doesn’t want to pay the taxes.
One good thing though. Having to fork over the taxes, rather than merely having it taken out of your pay, is sure to create more Republicans.
