Product description

Review

"An utterly superb book" -- Jeffrey Sachs "Shaxson combines meticulous research with amusing anecdotes, resulting in a very readable account of the murky world of offshore and a strong moral message that the system needs to be changed" * Financial Times * "Excellent... Shaxson comes as close as anyone ever has in getting the crux of the tax haven conundrum, which is to attempt to answer the question: why are they tolerated? - Evening Standard" * Evening Standard * "A fascinating, chilling book" -- Paul Krugman "Not just a crucial expose of the corrupt systems endemic in the global economy, but also a rousing call to do something about them" -- Holly Kyte * Sunday Telegraph * --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

NICHOLAS SHAXSON is the author of Poisoned Wells, the Dirty Politics of African Oil, an Associate Fellow of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House) and an experienced journalist writing regularly for The Financial Times and The Economist.
