Recently, a treasure trove of documents known as the Paradise papers hit the internet.
The leaked documents show the secretive world of offshore financing.
The papers have caused worldwide outrage, after prominent figures like Wilbur Ross, U2’s frontman Bono, and even Nelson Mandela were shown to have secretive businesses operating under questionable circumstances.
And, it just so happens students have been recently surprised to find out their colleges or universities held offshore undeclared businesses.

“The wealth is concentrated in a small group of schools, tilting toward private institutions like those in the Ivy League and other highly selective colleges.

The offshore network has allowed trillions in dollars to be sucked out of economies around the world, and into the pockets of corrupt governments, oligarchs, multinational corporations and the 1% who has more money than the rest of all of us combined.
“These are people and things that have a big impact on your lives and how you’re educated,” Chance said.
