New Sub-Forum - The Irish Oligarchy
There are a number of ultra-wealthy and ultra-connected individuals who are Irish or who have Irish connections and who generate a great deal of interest on this forum.
What is an oligarch ? A person with a lot of money, and a lot of political influence outside the normal democratic routes. Oligarchs tend to operate in more than one state, and to manage their tax affairs deftly.
Given the impact they have on the national economy, it seems like a good idea to have a dedicated sub-forum, so I have opened this one. I'll be adding some existing threads to it and look forward to new ones.
“ We cannot withdraw our cards from the game. Were we as silent and mute as stones, our very passivity would be an act. ”
