Inside this Book – Against the backdrop of a brilliant blue sky, a disembodied voice, vaguely recognizable from the world of advertising, declares: “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” The quotation launches an eighteen-minute corporate video to celebrate the thirty-fifth anniversary of the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca. Filmed in 2012, the video tells the sanitized origin story of a pair of visionaries who built a global empire selling secrecy. The firm started as two people and grew to almost six hundred employees with forty-two offices around the world. Its Panama headquarters operated twenty-four hours a day, churning out anonymous companies, a product as versatile as it was desirable. Each company was an empty corporate shell waiting to be filled. It could do practically anything: hold a bank account, own a mansion, enter into complex business transactions. Best of all, it was near impossible to discover who owned it. The video doesn’t dwell much on this wonder product. Instead it’s a paean to the law firm’s ambition and cutting-edge technical achievements.
Inside this book –Secrecy World PDF Book by Jake Bernstein – The ferry from Saint Thomas passes verdant islands, skimming over turquoise waters where pirates plied their trade. After about an hour, it crosses Sir Francis Drake Channel and reaches Road Town on the island of Tortola. Ramón Fonseca didn’t know what awaited him when he took the ride in the autumn of 1986. Shortly after joining forces, Mossack and Fonseca began to look for a new base for their companies. Panama was in turmoil. General strikes roiled the country, and the U.S. intelligence services publicly denounced Noriega’s cooperation with drug cartels. It seemed likely the government would default on its International Monetary Fund and World Bank loans, isolating Panama internationally. The unrest tainted the new firm’s main product, Panamanian companies. “You have CNN showing demonstrations in the streets, the camera focusing on burning tires, it was not good for business,” recalls Mossack.
