Join us in conversation with prize-winning journalist Oliver Bullough on his new book Moneyland, which tells the story of the nomadic super-rich, how first their wealth escaped oversight, and then they escaped control themselves.

From the passport-vendors of St Kitts and Nevis, to the secrecy vendors of Nevada, to the property vendors of Knightsbridge, it exposes a system where, if you're rich enough, whoever you are, wherever you come from, the laws do not apply to you.

In the words of John le Carré: ‘If you want to know why international crooks and their eminently respectable financial advisors walk tall and only the little people pay taxes, this is the ideal book for you. Every politician and moneyman on the planet should read it, but they won't because it's actually about them.’
