After five years journeying around the world in search of the truth, award-winning investigative journalist Tom Burgis is at Salon London to reveal a terrifying global web of corruption.

Yes, Tom will explain how he has followed the dirty money flooding the global economy, emboldening dictators and poisoning democracies. From the Kremlin to Beijing, Harare to Riyadh, Paris to the Trump White House, it shows how the thieves are uniting – and the terrible human cost.

They are everywhere, the thieves and their people. Masters of secrecy. Until now we have detected their presence only by what they leave behind. A body in a burned-out Audi. Workers riddled with bullets in the Kazakh desert. A rigged election in Zimbabwe. A British banker silenced and humiliated for trying to expose the truth about the City of London.

They have amassed more money than most countries. But what they are really stealing is power. And while we are looking the other way, all that we hold most dear is being stolen.

This Salon is part of our drive to get us together with the big ideas we need. Tickets are £7 and include the option of getting more involved in the Salon by being on the Front Row if you choose or why not support our bookselling by buying Kleptopia: How Dirty Money is Conquering the World from us below which we will send you post-Salon. Alternatively, become a member and get your big ideas curated by us at Salon London for a whole year.
