SAVE THE DATE! Phoenix Books welcomes inequality expert and IPS Director of the Program on Inequality and the Common Good at the Institute for Policy Studies, Chuck Collins, for a virtual book discussion about his newly released “The Wealth Hoarders: How Billionaires Pay Millions to Hide Trillions.”
For decades, a secret army of tax attorneys, accountants and wealth managers has been developing into the shadowy Wealth Defense Industry. These ‘agents of inequality’ are paid millions to hide trillions for the richest 0.01%.
In “The Wealth Hoarders” Chuck, who himself inherited a fortune, interviews the leading players and gives a unique insider account of how this industry is doing everything it can to create and entrench hereditary dynasties of wealth and power. He exposes the inner workings of these “agents of inequality”, showing how they deploy anonymous shell companies, family offices, offshore accounts, opaque trusts, and sham transactions to ensure the world’s richest pay next to no tax. He ends by outlining a robust set of policies that democratic nations can implement to shut down the Wealth Defense Industry for good.
