A sum larger than the entire USA $21tn in assets has been lost to global tax havens. If taxed, that could have been enough to put parts of Africa back on its feet – and even solve the euro crisis.

I think it's time to take some of this wealth of the top 0.1%. I'm not sure how it could be achieved, though there is a precedent of sorts. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/customers-cyprus-biggest-bank-stung-60-raid-savings-8555078.html
