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.

This has been by far the best book I have read on tax havens and globalisation. Its simple approach allows you to really engage with the reading and fully understand what a tax haven is. An excellent read for people doing research in tax havens or for those wanting to further understand what a tax haven is. I highly recommend it, the writers did an excellent job!!
