Right now I am dealing with press over the Panama Leaks, which eerily resemble a scenario from my novel EARTH (1990). The question of whether this could lead to an unraveling of secret wealth is interesting. Already being called “the Wikileaks of the mega-rich,” the Panama Papers, show how many powerful people around the world have used offshore and secret accounts to dodge taxes and sanctions and launder money.
Does this sound increasingly like the prelude to the “Helvetian War,” in my 1990 novel EARTH? I’ll have more to say about that, soon.
