In this podcast episode Naomi Fowler looks at how the very wealthy shape the world, why the rest of us really, really can’t afford them. And, how it never ends just with the pet mansions and the cashmere-lined private jets, as the fascinating story of the EU Court of Justice ruling (reversing progress on public registers of the real, flesh and blood owners of companies) demonstrates… But there’s plenty we can do about it!
“If you want to sanction wealthy people, what you actually need to do is knock their wealth managers out of the system, or disable their wealth manager’s ability to serve those oligarch clients.” ~ Brooke Harrington
