WiSe 19/20: The International Political Economy of Offshore Finance

Andrea Binder

Kommentar

With the Panama Papers in 2015 and other leaks, offshore finance has become a subject of daily news. Yet, IR and IPE scholarship treat offshore finance as a fringe phenomenon. The reality is, however, quite different. It is estimated that, all in all, half of the global stock of money is running through offshore centres. What does this mean for the international political economy? Offshore finance, it is said, robs the state of power by offering wealthy individuals and international corporations ways to avoid the tax man back at home and providing shelter for criminals to launder money from corruption, drug trafficking and other illicit activities. However, offshore financial centres also maintain the Eurodollar system, the world economy’s biggest source of corporate debt and crucial in financing international trade. The Eurodollar system is the backbone of the international financial system and finances the economic development of emerging economies such as China and Brazil. This seminar will introduce students to the mechanics of offshore finance from the perspective of banking, taxation and money laundering and helps students to properly place it in the international political economy. Throughout the seminar we will discuss how the desirable (e.g. financing global trade and economic development) is dovetailing with the undesirable (money laundering, tax fraud, inequality) and what that means for regulating the offshore world.
