Its a game of global monopoly and the one with the most cash stashed in the end wins. Some would say that's why we need a global order. So we can have the ability to reach outside jurisdictions and hold these people accountable. At this point who has the authority to seize the funds,investigate and redistribute?
In a global world rule there are no boundaries or limits to impede justice from being served on these criminals.
These sort of crimes are hidden behind the laws of different country's and laws that cant be penetrated or investigated appropriately. The banks and mega rich have figured out the kinks in the armor and they are working it to their advantage to the fullest. They have the best accountants money can buy that advise them on the best bullet proof ways to hide their money so that even if its found out no one can touch it.
Sure this is in the news and people will gasp but in the end, we have no way to rectify this sort of thing.
Remember these are not just your everyday run of the mill crooks.
These are princes,presidents,dictators,mob bosses and heads of state. All with power and connections and of-course unlimited funds. How do you rectify such a massive failure? The answer is you cant without causing war or destabilizing country's. Its just not realistic to think it will ever be addressed.

hey hey hey....let's cut this out....it's the lazy, tie-dyed wearing, no job 99%ers that are the the problem...focus, people focus. the top 1% are the civilized, honest, and fair job creators that have absolutely nothing to do with the problems of the knuckle-dragging, slopped-headed, losers in the world.

Giver a man a gun, he'll rob a bank. Give a man a bank, he'll rob the world.
The major difference is that the person with the gun, most of the time, has no other choice. Wheras the man with the bank, who has all the money - Well he cant justify what he does.
