Opinion: The ultra-rich are a threat to democracy - They undermine the rule of law by hiding their assets with the help of courts and politicians

What creeps me out most is discussion of the Pandora Papers is already relegated to the opinion page. We had the bombshell report, and then…nothing much else.

The ultra-rich get away with what they get away with not only with the help of judges and politicians, but also with the decisions of “news” boards to not run with the a huge story.

Ask the average Joe on the street if they’ve even heard of this. If they have, ask if they think it’s a big deal, and the answer will most likely be no. Why? Because if it was that big a deal, it’d be in the news more, more people would be talking about it, and somebody would be doing something about it.
