I believe that there are some serious challenges in global finance, yet a very large number of people are unaware about these issues, given how dull finance and investment books tend to be. Is there a potential to reach a larger audience using humor instead?
I plan on writing a series of books related to various financial topics (ranging from topics of global concern to that of managing personal finances & investments), but in a lighter and more humorous way. While the books may be written in a not-so serious light, there is enough research and work done to ensure that the facts and issues are correct.
I am not an author, but an investments professional with over a decade of experience in managing reasonably large sums of money. This is a field I do know a bit about.
Panama Papers & Offshore tax-havens is a 3-part book series, that provides a critical examination of the rapid proliferation of offshore tax-havens. These books go beyond what has publicly been revealed in the Panama Papers leaks by providing a detailed analysis of issues at stake, as compared to a rewriting of already public information.
While these books have been written in a humorous and perhaps sarcastic tone, this is only done with intent to make it more readable for a wider audience. However, the issues at stake, my interpretation of the eventual impact of these leaks and the longer-term solutions, are all very real.
The first book examines what makes offshore tax-havens so popular, why they will never be shut down and how easy these are to join. The second book provides a surprisingly real and implementable plan to make these offshore tax structures accessible to all the people in the world. The third and final book, examines a multitude of solutions for governments to raise revenues, in a environment where no individual is paying taxes.
In the first book of this series, we argued that we never see offshore tax-havens getting shut down. Is the only solution to address this gap between the rich and powerful and the masses then to create a structure that allows everyone a safe, easy and affordable means to join offshore tax havens? Read on for a detailed, highly unconventional yet executable plan to do just that.
Offshore tax havens provide selective and very large benefits to the rich and powerful of the world. Why should these be restricted, especially since they will never be shut down? Learn why these tax havens are legal, how they operate and most importantly how easy they are to join. A small amount of humor may be included in the text, to make it more readable for non-finance professionals :-
