Here’s how to track down and expose thousands of rich people hiding their money offshore. Congratulations to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.

What did they find in the 260 GB hard drive that was anonymously delivered to ICIJ? Here’s another article on the work of ICIJ:

The secret records obtained by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists lay bare the names behind covert companies and private trusts in the British Virgin Islands, the Cook Islands and other offshore hideaways.

They include American doctors and dentists and middle-class Greek villagers as well as families and associates of long-time despots, Wall Street swindlers, Eastern European and Indonesian billionaires, Russian corporate executives, international arms dealers and a sham-director-fronted company that the European Union has labeled as a cog in Iran’s nuclear-development program.
