Présentation de l'éditeur

From the Cayman Islands and the Isle of Man to the Principality of Liechtenstein and the state of Delaware, tax havens offer lower tax rates, less stringent regulations and enforcement, and promises of strict secrecy to individuals and corporations alike. In recent years government regulators, hoping to remedy economic crisis by diverting capital from hidden channels back into taxable view, have undertaken sustained and serious efforts to force tax havens into compliance.

In Tax Havens, Ronen Palan, Richard Murphy, and Christian Chavagneux provide an up-to-date evaluation of the role and function of tax havens in the global financial system-their history, inner workings, impact, extent, and enforcement. They make clear that while, individually, tax havens may appear insignificant, together they have a major impact on the global economy. Holding up to $13 trillion of personal wealth-the equivalent of the annual U.S. Gross National Product-and serving as the legal home of two million corporate entities and half of all international lending banks, tax havens also skew the distribution of globalization's costs and benefits to the detriment of developing economies.

The first comprehensive account of these entities, this book challenges much of the conventional wisdom about tax havens. The authors reveal that, rather than operating at the margins of the world economy, tax havens are integral to it. More than simple conduits for tax avoidance and evasion, tax havens actually belong to the broad world of finance, to the business of managing the monetary resources of individuals, organizations, and countries. They have become among the most powerful instruments of globalization, one of the principal causes of global financial instability, and one of the large political issues of our times.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fabulous fabulous book 18 février 2010

I had been hoping for the past decade that somebody would write this book. It exhaustively collects all extant data on offshore "tax/regulatory/secrecy havens," detailing their abuses, including: 1) an estimated annual worldwide tax loss of $255 BILLION (primarily from transfer pricing, mis-invoicing intra-group cross-border sales), with the result that by now 60% of large [over $250 million in assets] U.S. corporations pay no taxes, resulting in increased taxes on salaried middle class; 2) facilitation of recent financial crisis, due to opacity of risky assets; 3) facilitation of corruption (bribes, money-laundering, etc.); and facilitation of illegal capital flight, with one NGO estimating that tax havens cost the lives of at least 250,000 children a year in the developing world. And while a number of organizations, such as OECD, IMF, World Bank and others, have made efforts to rein in the worst abuses, must remains to be done. The authors outline several ideas, focusing especially on proposals by the Tax Justice Network for greater transparency. But this problem, as huge as it is, is just one part of the larger problem (soon to be addressed by a UN report by Joseph Stiglitz and David Kennedy) of lack of global economic regulation. Congratulations to the authors on a job well done!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Cogent, if opinionated, explanation of what tax havens really shield 29 mars 2011
Par Rolf Dobelli - Publié sur
Some aspects of offshore finance take place in a murky world of sham transactions in exotic locales, yet many economists say tax havens play an important role in greasing the machinery of global capitalism and keeping tax-raising bureaucrats at bay. Authors Ronen Palan, Richard Murphy and Christian Chavagneux beg to differ. They see tax havens as fundamentally dishonest; these "fiscal paradises" favor the haves at the expense of the have-nots. While their opinions on the subject are clear, the authors also provide a thorough overview of what's going on in the world's tax havens and what the future might hold for them. Their writing style is a bit dry and disorganized, but they offer plenty of juicy details about the places and institutions that enable tax evasion. getAbstract recommends this book to readers seeking an in-depth study of the rise of offshore financial centers and their place in global finance.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another excellent book on tax havens 29 novembre 2011

I started this book after finishing Shaxson's "Treasure Islands". Both are excellent : Shaxson's book is more entertaining, with more of a narrative. This book has more details as well as graphs and tables.

Between the two, this one probably contains more information. That said, I would encourage people with an interest in the subject to pick up Shaxson's book first for an introduction and then to move on to this book if they want more details on this very important subject. Reading both is still only 500 pages or so!

French obsessed with capitalists daring to legally keep profits to themselves - these are the authors of this book. Moral crusaders against capitalism, international business, privacy rights, sovereignty of non-EU states, abject defenders of kleptomaniac governments who can't stand companies using legal tools.
