Description 1 online resource (50 min.)
Summary Never before has money been so polarised in Britain: the richest 85 people now own more than half of the world's population. The country has more billionaires per head than any other country on earth, it is also the most unequal nation in Europe. In this two-part series, told through rigorous investigation, interviews with key participants and fascinating archive footage, Jacques Peretti investigates the seemingly irresistible rise of the super-rich and examines how the super-rich are upending the lives and certainties of everyone else. From an obscure legal loophole making Britain one of the most attractive tax havens in the world to the deliberate wooing of the super-rich by the government to reconfigure the British economy, Jacques considers how the advent of the super-rich has had far-reaching effects on every aspect of Britons' lives
