I’ve tried keeping up with day-to-day discussions of world events, and there is just too much happening at any given time. I found myself going back to get historical background or more detail on particular nations and lose track of the day-to-day thread. Events relentlessly march on. I’m going to give this another try.
One of the more recent events that has gained world attention is the release of the “Panama Papers”, which documents a great number of corporations and their investors and activities in countries with few taxes and few regulations. This is the sort of thing I would like to investigate, but these papers have a tremendous glut of information that I don’t have much hope of digesting. However, I will continue to watch the topic for future developments.
