I write about politics, finance and the intersection of the two on various sites – here, and on GroundReport. The Invisible Money series has gotten a lot of notice, as has the interview I did with Tony Phillips; there’s talk with various publishers of a book on the subject, a kind of bootstrap followup to Nic Shaxson’s magisterial Treasure Islands, which one and all should duly read. As my columns are getting a bit of notice, and I am happy to dialogue with readers, I created idreport19 at gmail so people can write directly. Two commentaries were invaluable in the last column, which I am about to reprint here. The book I have in mind is a country by country report on just how tax evasion and debt issues have affected the populace. Hope to hear from you.
