5.0 out of 5 stars An Important Book, 10 April 2012
This review is from: Treasure Islands: Tax Havens and the Men who Stole the World (Paperback)
This is a well written and deeply informative book. the trouble is it will also upset you as you read it with an increasing sense of anger that this is allowed and encouraged. Of course Amazon is also a well known culprit of offshore practices (e.g. Luxembourg) so I will not be buying anything from them again. So please get this book, but not from Amazon unless you have a sense of irony.

A useful companion to Shaxsons book would be former tax inspector Richard Brooks The Great Tax Robbery: The: How Britain Became a Tax Haven for Fat Cats and Big Business.

Its a brilliant look at the tax avoidance (dodging) industry in Britain, and though rich on detail is a highly readable look at the issue that is pitched at a level ideal for the general reader.

Amazon should at least offer two prices, so we can choose between onshore and offshore tax amounts for our purchases. Amazon isn't at fault here, as the book says its City of London Corp, the spider's web of ex British empire, capture of weak govts, secrecy juristictions worlwide etc etc. Amazon is merely a symptom, not a cause.
