Tax Havens and the Men who Stole the World
Overview: They mistakenly believe that the main offshore problems are money laundering and terrorist financing, whereas these are only small parts of the whole picture.
Book Description: Dirty money, tax havens and the offshore system describe the ugliest and most secretive chapter in the history of global economic affairs. Wealthy individuals hold over ten trillion dollars offshore. Tax havens are the most important single reason why poor people and poor countries stay poor. Treasure Islands show how this happens and reveal what the economics text books will not tell you.
