4. Jahrestagung des ICAE: The political Economy of Offshore Jurisdiction
Sprache des Titels:
Understanding actual capitalism needs an understanding of the domain of offshore economy, esp. of tax havens and regulation-free zones for financial flows and assets. They are based at offshore jurisdictions which provide the mandatory secrecy. An extensive part of the global economy is kept in dark.
The conference should lighten aspects of the function of offshore jurisdictions and their impact on global economy, e.g.:
Business models and instruments of offshore activities
The significance of the offshore economy for actual crises
The role of economic theories and economists in justifying offshore economy
The role and structure of user groups and intermediaries and their strategies and tactics
The history of offshore states
Political systems of offshore states
Actual regulation discourses with respect to the offshore economy
Consequences of offshore economy for non-financial companies and different citizen of offshore jurisdictions
The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers from different fields (such as economists, sociologists, historians and political scientists) to explore neglected aspects of global offshore economy.
