OK, there is a serious risk that the tax haven jurisdictions will die out one day. When? Exactly when all the high-tax countries will lower their corporate, income and capital gains taxes to nil, or at least close to nil. Impossible? We thought so...

There is a simple reason for that - so many business people worldwide have voted with their wallets and have chosen to incorporate offshore, that offshore has penetrated all aspects and facets of global economy. A \"critical mass\" of global offshore-based businesses have been created a long while ago, and it`s growing stronger by the day.
