International wealthy have to pay legislators to prevent whistleblowers.

If American workers hide income from the IRS, they go to jail. If you don't pay $100,000 in back taxes, you go to jail. If international wealthy Americans hide millions in income in Swiss or Cayman accounts, their bank pays a fine and the wealthy go on to more hiding. International corporations keep their money offshore so they don't pay taxes (the scheme is allowed by Congressmen) then Congress will try to get 5% of the taxes owed instead of the full amount.

Have you heard of ONE international tax evader being fined or jailed in the probe since 2008?

By the way, UBS was one of the several European banks that Bernanke gave billions to in TARP,

"Imagine wall-to-wall 24/7 news coverage of the trillions of dollars in fraudulent activity that got us into this mess. Imagine in-depth coverage of the corruption of our political process through a system of bribery that makes the mafia look like amateurs.
.
What about the staggering consolidation of wealth? Imagine if the media kept discussing how a small percentage of the population has 50 trillion dollars, then they started debating how we could use just a fraction of that money to solve problems, create solutions and evolve society.
.
What if they reported on all the wealth and resources that a small number of corporations control, then debated how that wealth and those resources could be redeployed to get us onto a sustainable and thriving path?"

"France is one of many countries , all under pressure to scrounge up extra cash as they tighten their budgets , that is raising the pressure on tax evaders and avoiders. The European Union is leading a charge to crack down on secret accounts that hide money from governments, and the Group of 20 leading industrial and developing nations has pledged to rein in tax avoidance by multinational companies.

In 2009, UBS paid $780 million to U.S. authorities as part of deal to end a tax evasion probe in which it stood accused of helping Americans hide billions of dollars in secret accounts.

"French authorities are formally investigating UBS for allegedly helping wealthy clients open undeclared bank accounts in Switzerland. ... It also allegedly set up a shadow accounting system that masked transfers between French and Swiss bank accounts.
...
The allegations originally came to light after former staff blew the whistle on the practices that involved hundreds of retail and corporate clients.
.
An anonymous letter was reportedly sent to the regulatory arm of the French central bank suggesting that parallel accounts were opened in Switzerland but undeclared in France, which is illegal under French law.
.
The letter said a special record was kept between 2002-2007 listing undeclared bank accounts that had been opened by corporate clients.
.
Stephanie Gibaud said she was asked to "destroy a series of sensitive documents containing the names of current or potential clients who had participated in events organised on French territory."

.
Nicolas Forissier, a former internal auditor of UBS' private banking division, also told the newspaper that a special record containing a list of French clients with undeclared bank accounts was sent to the UBS' Swiss headquarters.
.
The latest investigation came amid a wider government crackdown on tax evasion in Europe and the United States.

In France, former French budget minister Jerome Cahuzac resigned in April after admitting he had squirreled away savings in an undeclared Swiss bank account. His ministry was responsible for tackling tax evasion.

UBS was placed under a similar investigation in 2008 in the US when it faced charges for conspiracy to defraud the US tax authority. The bank eventually paid a $780m fine to avoid prosecution and handed over data on some 4,500 bank accounts held by suspected US tax evaders. "

    It’s a tough one. They’re international and governments aren’t. Plus, they own the world, this is like the kids trying to whip the parents into line. This is what started me brainstorming in my Illuminati post, I’m trying to imagine a way to convince them to willingly act in a moral fashion towards the rest of us . . .
