Research output: Other contributionNet publication - Internet publicationCommunication

Abstract

Mossack Fonseca kept its clients largely on the right side of the law. Indeed, that’s entirely the point.
This article for The Atlantic draws on my wealth management research to explain why most of what is revealed in the Panama Papers leak will not result in criminal prosecution for anyone, and why government officials face nearly insurmountable obstacles to stopping the kind of financial games in which Mossack Fonseca and its counterparts engage.
