2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Rolf Dobelli TOP 500 REVIEWER on 1 Feb. 2010
Format: Hardcover
The battle seemed like a no-brainer: The world's superpowers launched an effort to force tiny tax havens such as the Cayman Islands, Barbados and Mauritius to raise their taxes. Yet, in this contentious war of words, the underdogs prevailed. In his look at the major nations' four-year attempt to crack down on tax havens, J.C. Sharman produces an intriguing study of what the big countries did wrong and what the small states did right. While his style is stilted at times, Sharman delivers a trenchant analysis of this high-stakes dispute and its surprising outcome. getAbstract recommends this bracing David-and-Goliath story to readers seeking perspective on the tax wars in particular and on international relations in general.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
One of the few recent titles to look at the world of offshore finance and tax havens in an objective manner with neither axe to grind or product to sell.
