"In the case of Halliburton, as an example, they have an offshore subsidiary in the Cayman Islands. That subsidiary is doing business with Iran."

That's not possible, because Cheney good things rainbows.

Phinn: Pincy: Phinn: There are other places for financial privacy. They will get whatever money leaves the Caymans.

And Obama will try to pursue them, in his effort to make the entire world serve the aims of the USA.

But the opponents of "world government" are loony conspiracy theorists," right?

Your first sentence seemed reasonable. Your second sentence left me confused. Your third sentence is a cry for help.

Why would you be confused? It's simple. So, either you're a simpleton, or you have some kind of ideological bias that prevents you from seeing a simple reality.

Obama will direct his minions to chase the money as it leaves the Caymans and goes elsewhere. (Money is not a static thing. It's a process, a rate, a stream. Wealth needs to be created before it can be taxed, and created again before it can be taxed again. The US government could seize 100% of everything in the Caymans, and it would be spent on stuff, and then run out. Meanwhile, the people who know how to create wealth will have created new wealth, and stashed it somewhere else. Taxation is only really meaningful when it can capture wealth again and again, periodically.)

But that chase will soon become tiresome, and either he (or his ideological successor) will abandon the anti-haven agenda as futile, or he will realize that the only way to stamp out all illicit money transfers is to control all of the banks, everywhere, all over the earth.

He will either need to be satisfied chasing money as it jumps from haven to haven, indefinitely, or he will have to eliminate all havens. As long as a few remain, capital will find it.

So, what's the only way to ensure that all banks all over the world cooperate with the taxation appetite of the IRS and the US Treasury?

A system of government that reaches everywhere, that allows for no corner of the earth to have any banking independence at all, and so there is nowhere that isn't ultimately made to serve US monetary interests.


You should seriously consider writing futuristic international spy-ring thrillers because you appear to have a spectacular imagination when it comes to this stuff.

Miss Stein: oukewldave: Anyone with a reason to hide their money overseas already got the tip off to move elsewhere.

True, but there will still be records of deposits and where the funds were transferred when the accounts were closed.

The HSBC list of American accounts were not released to the public. Hopefully they will be this time.

/subby


Disclosing that kind of information to the public would be detrimental to the stability of our economy.

/did I get that right?

I am *more* that OK with this. It's fine to be rich, if you've earned it AND are playing fair. If you're gaming the system in such a way that it negatively affects others, then you can GFY.
