The Raw Story reveals (July 5th) still more about hedge funds and the way our financial system is rotten to the core.

Our minds easily grok the realities of Vladimir Putin embezzling a billion dollars through offshore accounts or the Prime Minister of Iceland stealing cash from public coffers. Where we fail more easily is visualizing the system of shell companies, accounting tools, trade regimes, tax havens, and legislative changes that make up the system of wealth extraction all of these individuals are using in collaboration with their partners in crime.

Paxton was charged with persuading others to buy stock in North Texas tech firm Servergy, Inc. without disclosing he was being paid to promote the company. The attorney general, a Republican from McKinney, also faces criminal fraud charges in Texas for these same allegations.

Federal agents and prosecutors are “chomping at the bit” to exploit the Panama Papers and launch prosecutions, a senior federal law enforcement official told NBC News — but want to be sure that the way thefor “A Future We Can Believe In! huge data dump about offshore money was obtained doesn’t jeopardize their cases.
“It is a bonanza,” the official said in reference to the cache of 11 million financial documents about shell companies that a Panamanian law firm set up for some of the world’s shadiest and most powerful people….
See Enormous document leak exposes offshore accounts of world leaders, The Hill, April 3, 2015, by Rebecca Savransky:
“The investigation ‘exposes a cast of characters who use offshore companies to facilitate bribery, arms deals, tax evasion, financial fraud and drug trafficking,’ according to the website.
“‘Behind the email chains, invoices and documents that make up the Panama Papers are often unseen victims of wrongdoing enabled by this shadowy industry.’
