PODCAST: MONEYLAND

The Talking Politics podcast from the London review of Books sees an interview of Oliver Bullough (who acted as a guide on kleptocracy tours of London) about his acclaimed new book Moneyland: Why Thieves and Crooks Now Rule the World and How to Take it Back.  Where is Moneyland?  How did London become its capital?  And will Brexit, or a Corbyn government, or another financial crash change how it operates?  A conversation about tax havens, money-laundering, the politics of corruption and the corruption of politics.   The Guardian says that Bullough traces the ways in which, over the last 3 decades, a criminal elite of politicians and “businessmen” have been able to move their thieved fortunes around the world, through offshoring and shell companies, and have seen those fortunes settle in the places that have the highest-paid lawyers and accountants.
