Bank (Tax Haven) Secrecy = Fraud & Corruption

Posted: 04/02/2013 in EN, ES, Maatschappij, NL, Sociedad, Society

By now, everybody knows that Bank Secrecy in Switzerland and other Tax Havens (Treasure Islands) only exists to protect large-scale corruption, fraud and crime, both from individuals and organizations that lack any ethics, dignity and scruples.

TAX PARADISES and corruption are the top of this pyramid.
Treasure Islands = Black Money = Fraud & Corruption = War & Destruction

It is quite sad to know that these kind of practices occupy about a quarter (an estimated 25%) of all world capital, and as such, a corresponding amount of effort, dedication and creativity. Just imagine how much pain and suffering could have been avoided and how much further humanity could have progressed,  if these human resources would have been used for general interest instead of being squandered for selfish greed and, in fact, no more than just a kind of financial masturbation of a few.

Even if we are being told that Bank Secrecy is being reduced, it is (if true) way too slow, and not clear at all if this is total and definite abolition, or just a partial withdrawl just for the image. There is still great work to be done and pressure to be put on Switzerland and the other Treasure Islands by public opinion.

European Spring 2013 and the END of  TAX HAVEN SECRECY

All NGOs and Activism should unite and ALWAYS include this claim in their protests and manifestations! And the European Spring 2013 should be the start of this UNIFICATION!
The fight against AUSTERITY is no more than the fight against BANK SECRECY and TAX HAVENS!

Some articles: mostly on the (old) vague intentions and the slow progress, although also some apparently real executions, of a bit of disclosure of Bank Secrecy in Switzerland or other Tax Paradises:
