Product description


Christopher Bruner's Re-Imagining Offshore Finance: Market-Dominant Small Jurisdictions in a Globalizing Financial World is a significant contribution to the literature that should become required reading for both consumers and producers of knowledge concerning the regulation of global financial transactions. ... Bruner's careful comparative case studies cut through ideologically charged old labels and reveal several important characteristics shared by certain small jurisdictions, like Bermuda and Singapore, that account for their disproportionate success in the global market for cross-border finance. (William J. Moon, Michigan Law Review)

Christopher Bruner's important and timely book convincingly argues that we need to take seriously a handful of small jurisdictions that, for better and worse, have managed to compete for ever-increasing shares of the market for cross-border finance. Through a careful study of the institutional features of a number of jurisdictions, Bruner identifies a special group, 'market-dominant small jurisdictions', that have excelled in this competition, and distills the essential factors leading to their success. This is a major contribution to the literature. (Erin O'Hara O'Connor, Dean and McKenzie Professor of Law, Florida State University College of Law)

Are tax havens good or bad? Professor Bruner brings a fresh new perspective to this tantalizingly simple question in his book Re-Imagining Offshore Finance. By engaging an impressively broad scope of literatures and breaking through old, unhelpful labels, Bruner is able to identify fascinating new themes in offshore tax and financial competition. In bringing to light the concept of 'market-dominant small jurisdictions', Bruner helps move the intellectual debate forward in a truly novel and important way. (Adam Rosenzweig, Vice Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of Law, Washington University School of Law)

Re-Imagining Offshore Finance is an excellent read for anyone with an interest in international finance. It provides a thorough conceptual framework for the rise of MDSJs. Bruner's clear language and thorough analyses make a complicated theoretical analysis easy to understand. (Zachary S. Freeman, NYU Journal of International Law and Politics)
