Die Geschichte des größten Daten-Leaks aller Zeiten beginnt spät am Abend mit einer anonymen Nachricht: „Hallo. Hier spricht John Doe. Interessiert an Daten?“ Bastian Obermayer, Investigativreporter der Süddeutschen Zeitung, antwortet sofort – und erhält Informationen, die ihn und seinen Kollegen Frederik Obermaier elektrisieren. Es sind die Daten hunderttausender Briefkastenfirmen. Sie bieten einen Einblick in eine bislang vollständig abgeschottete Parallelwelt, in der Milliarden verwaltet, verschoben und versteckt werden: die Gelder von großen Konzernen, von europäischen Premierministern und Diktatoren aus aller Welt, von Scheichs, Emiren und Königen, von Mafiosi, Schmugglern, Drogenbossen, von Geheimagenten, FIFA-Funktionären, Adligen, Superreichen und Prominenten. Um möglichst viele internationale Geschichten erzählen zu können, beschließen die beiden Journalisten, ein weltweites Netzwerk von Investigativreportern – das ICIJ – einzuschalten. Während sie selbst weiter nach Namen und Geschichten suchen, koordinieren sie gemeinsam mit dem ICIJ die Arbeit hunderter Journalisten. Fast ein Jahr arbeiten Reporter der wichtigsten Medien der Welt – etwa des Guardian, der BBC oder von Le Monde – unter höchster Geheimhaltung zusammen, um im Frühjahr 2016 die „Panama Papers“ zu veröffentlichen. Dieses Buch ist die faszinierende Geschichte einer internationalen journalistischen Recherche, die aufdeckt, was bis jetzt verborgen war: Wie eine kleine Elite, die sich niemandem mehr verantwortlich glaubt, ungeheure Vermögen versteckt. Es ist, als würde man in einem dunklen Raum das Licht anknipsen: Plötzlich ist alles sichtbar.

Late one evening, investigative journalist Bastian Obermayer receives an anonymous message offering him access to secret data. Through encrypted channels, he then receives documents revealing how the president of Argentina has sequestered millions of dollars of state money for private use. This is just the beginning. Obermayer and fellow Süddeutsche journalist Frederik Obermaier find themselves immersed in the secret world where complex networks of letterbox companies help the super-rich to hide their money. Faced with the contents of the largest data leak in history, they activate an international network of journalists to follow every possible line of inquiry. Operating in the strictest secrecy for over a year, they uncover cases involving European prime ministers and international dictators, emirs and kings, celebrities and aristocrats. The real-life thriller behind the story of the century, The Panama Papers is an intense, unputdownable account that proves, once and for all, that there exists a small elite living by a different set of rules and blows their secret world wide open.

A two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist takes us inside the world revealed by the Panama Papers, a landscape of illicit money, political corruption, and fraud on a global scale. A hidden circulatory system flows beneath the surface of global finance, carrying trillions of dollars from drug trafficking, tax evasion, bribery, and other illegal enterprises. This network masks the identities of the individuals who benefit from these activities, aided by bankers, lawyers, and auditors who get paid to look the other way. In Secrecy World, the Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter Jake Bernstein explores this shadow economy and how it evolved, drawing on millions of leaked documents from the files of the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca—a trove now known as the Panama Papers—as well as other journalistic and government investigations. Bernstein shows how shell companies operate, how they allow the superwealthy and celebrities to escape taxes, and how they provide cover for illicit activities on a massive scale by crime bosses and corrupt politicians across the globe. Bernstein traveled to the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, and within the United States to uncover how these strands fit together—who is involved, how they operate, and the real-world impact. He recounts how Mossack Fonseca was exposed and what lies ahead for the corporations, banks, law firms, individuals, and governments that are implicated. Secrecy World offers a disturbing and sobering view of how the world really works and raises critical questions about financial and legal institutions we may once have trusted.

Quiénes son los políticos, los empresarios y las celebridades argentinas que tienen firmas en paraísos fiscales, y qué es lo que buscan esconder en ellos. Mossack Fonseca era uno de los creadores de sociedades offshore más importantes del planeta hasta que, a comienzos de 2016, una megafiltración expuso los secretos de una red financiera global al servicio de la fuga de capitales, la evasión impositiva, el ocultamiento y el lavado de dinero. Los primeros archivos que dieron forma a los Panamá Papers revelaron un capítulo de la disputa entre la Argentina y los fondos buitres. Los acreedores reclamaban información sobre Lázaro Báez y los Kirchner. Sin embargo, el nombre que apareció fue el de Mauricio Macri, uno de los cinco presidentes en funciones mencionados entre los once millones y medio de documentos hackeados. En esa gigantesca e intrincada base de datos, figuran también varios integrantes del PRO, futbolistas, y los dueños, accionistas y directivos de las doscientas empresas más grandes del país, así como bancos, abogados y firmas contables de prestigio. Santiago O'Donnell, elegido por el Consorcio Internacional de Periodistas de Investigación que centralizó la cobertura de dimensión global, junto con Tomás Lukin, experto en el mundo offshore, pasaron meses cruzando información de firmas que son cáscaras vacías y directivos con nombres de paja. De esa compleja indagación surgió este libro fascinante que revela cómo se maneja el poder real y quiénes son los verdaderos dueños de la Argentina. Mauricio Macri, Franco Macri, Jorge Macri, Lázaro Báez, Blaquier, De Narváez, Panamá, Jinkis, Messi, Heinze, Frávega, Coto, Buitres, Mossack Fonseca, Grindetti, Clusellas, De Andreis, Saguier, Magnetto, Soldati, Amalita, Pérez Companc, Bulgheroni, FIFA, Madanes, Hong Kong, Garfunkel, Suiza, Paul Singer, Eurnekian, Cristóbal López, Ciccone, Redrado, De Mendiguren, HSBC, Arcor, Burzaco, Massera, Joseph Lewis, Nevada, Antonio De La Rúa, Bahamas, Techint.

Rita Vásquez y J. Scott Bronstein, miembros de La Prensa, único medio de Panamá involucrado en la investigación de los Panama Papers, nos descubren los entretelones de esta operación periodística, que ha recibido el Premio Pulitzer 2017. Al estilo de un thriller policiaco, no faltan las desapariciones, sabotajes y amenazas que vivieron funcionarios y periodistas que estuvieron cerca de los clientes de la firma y de las investigaciones. ¿Por qué el abogado Jürgen Mossak -hijo de un oficial nazi- intenta disuadir a los directivos de La Prensa de que continúen con la indagación que involucra a su firma con procedimientos financieros presuntamente ilícitos? ¿De qué manera operaba el bufete para ofrecer sus servicios a clientes que, en ocasiones, resultaron ser criminales? ¿Cómo se montó la filtración masiva que llevó a descubrir el entramado? ¿Quiénes estaban interesados en que se dieran a conocer los nombres de cientos de personajes con capitales en paraísos fiscales? Si, al parecer, había interés en llegar hasta el fondo de la investigación, ¿por qué los autores tuvieron que hacer frente a la pérdida de amistades y relaciones profesionales? ¿Se sintieron amenazados estos periodistas? ¿Por qué Panamá fue señalado desde fuera y desde dentro? Los autores vieron también peligrar su seguridad. El caso terminaría enfrentando no sólo a Panamá contra el mundo, sino también a los panameños entre sí, aunque los autores reivindican a lo largo de las páginas a un país, el suyo. Ésta es una historia de múltiples sociedades, muchas de ellas sociedades peligrosas.

Cum am găsit miliardele ascunse ale unor premieri, dictatori, funcționari FIFA, șefi de concerne și magnați – și banii secreți din cercul intimilor lui Putin „Inegalitatea de venituri este una dintre problemele definitorii ale vremurilor noastre. Ne afectează pe toți, din lumea întreagă. Dezbaterea despre accelerarea sa bruscă s-a dezlănțuit de mulți ani, iar politicienii, oamenii de știință și activiștii sunt neputincioși în a opri acest fenomen, în ciuda numeroaselor discursuri, a analizelor statistice, a câtorva proteste firave și a dezvăluirilor ocazionale. Totuși, o întrebare rămâne: de ce? Și de ce acum? Documentele Panama furnizează un răspuns convingător la aceste întrebări: corupția masivă, generalizată. Și nu este o coincidență că răspunsul vine de la o firmă de avocatură. [...] Impactul colectiv al acestor eșecuri [al băncilor, al autorităților de reglementare financiară și fiscale, al instanțelor judecătorești, al instituțiilor media, al profesiunilor juridice] este o eroziune completă a standardelor etice, care conduce în cele din urmă la un nou sistem pe care continuăm să îl numim capitalism, dar care este echivalent cu sclavia economică. În acest sistem – sistemul nostru –, sclavii nu știu care le este statutul, nici cine le sunt stăpânii, care există într-o lume aparte, unde lanțurile intangibile sunt ascunse cu grijă într-un maldăr de limbaj judecătoresc inaccesibil. Oribila magnitudine a pagubelor aduse lumii ar trebui să ne trezească pe toți. Dar atunci când e nevoie ca un avertizor de integritate să dea alarma, este un motiv de și mai mare îngrijorare. Este un semnal că sistemele de verificare și echilibru ale democrației au dat greș, că prăbușirea este sistemică și că instabilitatea gravă ar putea fi chiar după colț. Așa că acum este timpul pentru a acționa cu adevărat, iar acest lucru începe prin a pune întrebări.“ – din manifestul lui John Doe „Dezvăluiri din interior despre cum guverne, corporații și grupuri de crimă organizată au folosit lumea secretă a jurisdicțiilor offshore pentru a se implica în fraude și furturi sistematice. Povestea aproape perfectă pentru secolul XXI – eșecul democrației, triumful puterii comerciale și lăcomie, lăcomie, lăcomie.“ – The Guardian
