Panamanian Pandemonium

After reading several stories about one of the most expansive leaks ever, I’m not sure whether to be outraged or to start setting up some overseas LLCs. We knew powerful and wealthy people (both honest and corrupt) went to great lengths to stash their cash. But now, with the Panama Papers, we have names and numbers. From Fusion: Dirty Little Secrets.

+ Five key figures implicated in the scandal. (There will be more.)

+ Iceland stood out as a country that actually put bankers in jail following the 2008 economic collapse. So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that Prime Minister Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson’s appearance in the Panama Papers is not going over very well.

+ The Guardian: Putin will do anything to stifle the Panama Papers story.

+ Wired: How reporters pulled off the story of the biggest leak in whistleblower history. (Still unresolved: How am I gonna get the song Panama by Van Halen out of my head?)
