Uh, during World War Two, Jews trying to flee Europe and obtain foreign citizenship were tricked by Nazis and ended up in death camps (read my story “The Auschwitz Dancer”).
However, today, in the land of the “global free billionaires,” folks are getting golden passports so they can skip town if the going gets touchy (economically speaking or, as in the case of Russia and Ukraine–war-wise) with these “golden passport schemes.”
Peter Thiel (Paypal multi-billionaire) is the latest super-rich dude to get on the free-floating pristine barge to economic paradise. So, if we go into a global recession, these cats can escape! How cool is that? Why can’t we all get one of these? Uh, dunno. Maybe not wealthy enough?
