How do the one percent keep getting richer despite financial crises and the myriad of taxes on income, capital gains, and inheritance? Brooke Harrington interviewed professionals who specialize in protecting the fortunes of the world's richest people: wealth managers. To gain access to their tactics and mentality, she trained to become one of them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Capital without Borders: Wealth Managers and the One Percent is an innovative approach to addressing a problem that is even more pressing than income inequality--wealth inequality...The book is rich in fascinating detail, from the historical roots of wealth management to a description of a state system that might be called the 'parasitic twin' of the Westphalian model. Capital without Borders is a book that everyone who cares about fairness, the rule of law, and equal opportunity should read. Even if, or perhaps especially if, you're in the 'one percent.'--Brenda Jubin"ValueWalk" (09/11/2016)
Offers a timely account of how the 1% holds on to their wealth...[It] ought to keep wealth managers awake at night...Harrington's book ought to make professionals involved in wealth management aware that they are operating in an 'ethical gray area' and engage in the national discourse on inequality that has been gathering momentum since Thomas Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-First Century.--Aifric Campbell"Wall Street Journal" (12/29/2016)
Brooke Harrington's overhaul of the One Percent, Capital without Borders, couldn't arrive at a better time... Capital without Borders is an unparalleled exploration of an especially darkened corner of world finance... Harrington's commentary is a magnifying glass held towards those who are gaining opportunities at the expense of those losing them... Capital without Borders gives a clear picture as to how the world's wealthiest people live in a parallel reality to the rest of the world: one out of reach of laws and regulation on a global scale... Capital without Borders is a vital text for the modern age and a must-read for anyone looking towards a more egalitarian economic future.--Matthew Fay"PopMatters" (11/17/2016)
Capital without Borders offers an in-depth look into the wealth management profession... This is an important work for our increasingly unequal world. Instead of uncritically blaming the wealthy and the super-rich or national and state governments, it is high time to focus our attention on the brokers, intermediaries and agents who constitute the 'middleman economy' of global inequality.--Sin Yee Koh"LSE Review of Books" (03/01/2017)
