In these documents we see how the powerful and ultra-wealthy, including the Queen’s private estate, secretly invest large amounts of cash offshore in places known to be tax havens.

  1. Meanwhile, across the pond, Paul Pelosi (Nancy’s hubby) just invested somewhere between 1.4 and 5 million dollars in chip manufacturer Nvidia when… well I”ll be darned… Nancy’s House will be holding a vote next week to give the chip industry a huge cash bailout to increase production. This is how you get into politics with a net worth of $200k and after a 40 year career of serving the people your net worth is somewhere between $105 and $130 million (Nancy refuses to say exactly).

  2. I am sure that the monarchy doesn’t know anything about this….or is profiting from it. (Yes, that was sarcasm). And the sound cutting out is rather annoying.

  3. interesting documentary but the audio cuts out several times in this version
