    Default Treasure Islands - the sickness of 'Offshore'.

    Just ordered the book this article talks about. Really interesting!

    A couple of weeks ago I had the great good fortune to have a long talk with Nicholas Shaxson, the author of "Treasure Islands - tax havens and the men who stole the world."

    We had a wide ranging discussion including, of course, his book, the reactions he's had to it, particularly from within the off-shore world, his on-going research and writing, and the troubled conscience of some bankers.

    First let me say that "Treasure Islands" is, in my opinion, a very good book indeed. It not only lays out the story of the genesis of the offshore, tax evading world, but it goes beyond the surface reporting of 'what happened' to offer a disturbing analysis of 'how' and 'why' it happened and for whose benefit. In so doing Mr Shaxson brings himself directly into conflict with the mainstream narrative of what global finance and global banking is and does.
