  1. What does it really mean to be creative?

    In this video, David Perell and I explore some common myths about creativity and the importance of changing the narrative around this fuzzy topic to unleash a generation of creators.

    In school, creativity is usually associated with what’s inside the box labeled “The Arts” in the corner of the classroom. That’s one place where creativity belongs. But it’s certainly not the only place.

    We also lead kids to believe that in order to be creative, they need to come up with brand new ideas. That’s one way to be creative. But again, not the only way. ————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

    On today's show, we take a page from radio newscaster Paul Harvey and tell you "the rest of the story."

  4. Planet Money: He Won’t Tell You His Name, But He’ll Help You Hide Your Money

    We set up our shell companies. Then we wondered: What do people actually do with shell companies?

    One popular use, it turns out, is what professionals call "asset protection." Ordinary people call this "hiding money."

    Maybe you're a surgeon worried a patient might sue you and take everything you have. Or you want to hide money from your ex (or your soon-to-be ex).

    "That's always a big concern," says Bobby Casey, managing director at a company called Global Wealth Protection.

    Bobby Casey lives in Latvia. The director of operations at his company goes by "Adam Wolf," but that's not his name. There's a photo of Adam Wolf on the website, but you can't see his face. He's riding a motorcycle, dressed in black, wearing a helmet and sunglasses.

    Asset protection is one of those professions where you can make enemies. Bobby Casey says he's simply trying to help people build a fortress around wealth they've earned.

    Say you own a piece of property with a few rental units, and you're worried about a lawsuit from a tenant who claims to have slipped on the stairs.

    First step, place the property into a legal entity into a trust. Then, when a lawyer looks for who owns the building, all he finds is the trust. The lawyer has to go get a court order to get the trust document, which is when he encounters the second layer of your financial fortress. The trust is owned not by you, but by some company in Delaware. That company also doesn't have your name attached to it.

    "It's kind of like Alice in Wonderland down the rabbit hole," Casey says. "It makes it very complicated to chase down owners."

    The whole point is to put up barriers to discourage people from suing you. Casey recommends all his clients keep some money out of the country entirely — perhaps by setting up a shell company on the Caribbean island of Nevis with a bank account in Latvia.

    Now a lawyer trying to penetrate your fortress might have to fly to Nevis. And then, even if the gets what he wants there, he would have to go to Latvia.

    Bobby Casey paints a picture of a world with two kinds of people in it: People with money, and people who sue the people with money.

    But, I asked Casey, isn't the point of the court system to sort that out? Isn't he helping people hide assets that actually should go to other people?

    "I would say there is way more frivolous, unjustified litigation in the U.S. than there is justified litigation," he said.

    That's debatable. What's not debatable: All these tricks are within the law. "It's legal," one lawyer said to me. "Is it moral? That's a question for the bishop."

    Correction: Due to an editing error, an earlier version of this story incorrectly said that Bobby Casey is not Bobby Casey's real name. It is his real name.

  5. Planet Money: Episode 408: How To Hide Money From Your Spouse

    Earlier this summer, we set up two shell companies in tax havens. On today's show, we continue our quest to figure out what people actually do with shell companies.

    We discover the world of "Asset Protection," which is a fancy way of saying "hiding money." It's a world of Latvian companies and offshore conferences, of people trying to hide money from their future-ex-husbands and future-ex-wives.

    "It's kind of like Alice in Wonderland down the rabbit hole," one insider tells us.

  6. Planet Money: Episode 403: What Can We Do With Our Shell Companies?

    A few months back, we set up a couple shell companies — Unbeliezable, Inc., in Belize, and Delawho? in Delaware.

    On today's show, we talk to some tax lawyers to try to figure out what we can do with our companies. We draft a resolution so we can go to Belize to meet the fake director and fake shareholder of our company. And we learn owning shell companies in tax havens is a lot more of a hassle than we thought.
