Reviews

"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
