Re-Imagining Offshore Finance

Christopher M. Bruner

Oxford University Press

The book opens with a brief discussion of prevailing contemporary discourse about the market roles of small jurisdictions active in cross-border corporate and financial services. It then introduces Bruner’s reconceptualization, which aims to better capture the salient characteristics, competitive strategies, and market roles of those small jurisdictions achieving global dominance in the marketplace—the “market-dominant small jurisdiction” (MDSJ). Such jurisdictions, Bruner argues, share a set of legal, economic, political, social, cultural, and geographic features that go a long way toward illuminating how and why they have achieved extraordinary successes in cross-border finance. This chapter also provides an overview of the book’s structure, summarizing the subjects addressed in each chapter.

Keywords:   market-dominant small jurisdictions, cross-border finance, offshore financial centers, tax havens, regulatory competition
