Andrew Morriss presents a webcourse of interest, starting May 5. The objective:
"explore the rich history of the islands and talk to local experts about the institutional, legal, and regulatory frameworks, predicated on property rights and a rule of law, that led to this mass wealth creation and complete economic transformation in only 20 short years."Professor Morriss wrote up his research with Tony Freyer on how the Caymans became an offshore financial center, which I posted and discussed briefly here. That paper pushed buttons and I am sure the webcourse will do the same, as the international taxation landscape is undergoing some serious growing pains of late and governments around the world are reconsidering the promises and perils of regulating behavior in a globally integrated economy.
