Evading capital controls is a big deal if you’re the head of government, but does anyone care if a private citizen does it?

I'm definitely interested in seeing the wider implications of events such as this. Will it result in a crackdown on these measures or countries making global pacts to rat out individuals? Or instead, will it result in a public consensus of "well, they did it so why can't I?" We shall see, although I'm more inclined to lean towards the latter given the public outcry over many of the implicated individuals. Not to mention global governments favoring hardline approaches.

Monarchist, always and forever ;)
