內容簡介

第一次透明化避稅天堂的秘密,影響可期,極其重要的經典。──Thomas Piketty, 2013年的暢銷書Capital in the Twenty-First Century《二十一世紀資本論》作者。

Gabriel Zucman是2015年的Thomas Piketty,他們咸強調財富不均逐步擴大,造成不平等現象日益嚴重,肇因乃為資本回報率始終高於經濟增長率──對全球富人、金融市場投下深水巨彈。──彭博財經日報。

消失的資產,看不到的隱藏財富。

按理說,全世界資產和負債應當是平衡的。但Gabriel Zucman研究了全世界錯綜複雜的財務帳戶資料發現,全世界的負債比資產高出了大約6萬億美元──這消失的資產跑去哪?光是瑞士單一國家,就持有全球約1/3的隱藏財富,拉丁美洲和非洲的富人則有30%的資金隱匿在避稅天堂,俄羅斯的比例可能高達50%。

從經濟學家、銀行家到政治家,加州大學柏克萊分校助理教授Gabriel Zucman是第一人準確且量化目前在全球的資產與負債比,更重要的是,他提供了一個驚人確可靠的事實,關於我們只在電影上看過的避稅天堂所隱藏的鉅資──合法且正當的。

錯綜複雜的稅制,龐大繁重的體系,在作者Gabriel Zucman以大量實證,深入淺出的文字,剖析全球金融市場的漏洞,與大規模逃稅程度所破壞整體金融市場的現況與隱憂,是一本了解避稅、財務槓桿操作、全球金融分析的重要著作。

We are well aware of the rise and dominance of the one percent as the rapid growth of economic inequality has seen the majority of the world's wealth held in the pockets of fewer and fewer. One much-discussed solution to this imbalance is to significantly increase the rate at which we are taxing the wealthy. However, an enormous amount of the world's wealth is hidden in tax havens, in countries like Switzerland, Luxembourg, and the Cayman Islands, so it can't be fully accounted for and taxed fairly. To complicate it further, no one, from economists to bankers to politicians, has been able to quantify exactly how much of the world's assets are currently being hidden-until now. Gabriel Zucman is the first economist to offer reliable insight into the actual extent of the world's money held in tax havens. And it's staggering. In The Hidden Wealth of Nations, Zucman offers an inventive and rigorous approach to quantifying how big the problem is, how tax havens work and are organized, and how we can begin to approach a solution. His research reveals that tax havens are a quickly growing danger to the world economy. In the past five years, the amount of wealth in tax havens has increased over twenty-five percent-there has never been as much money held offshore as there is today. This hidden wealth accounts for a least eight percent of the global financial assets, equivalent to $7.6 trillion. Fighting the notion that any attempts to solve the tax haven problem are futile, since some countries will always offer more advantageous tax rates than others, as well the counter-argument that after the financial crisis many countries have successfully fought tax evasion, Zucman shows how both sides are actually very wrong. In The Hidden Wealth of Nations he offers an ambitious agenda for reform, focused on ways in which countries can change the incentives of tax havens. Only by first understanding the extent of the wealth being secretly held can we begin to estimate the kind of actions that would force tax havens to give up their practices. Zucman's work has quickly become the gold standard for quantifying the amount of the world's assets held in havens, and in this concise book, he lays out in approachable language how the international banking system works and the dangerous extent to which the large-scale evasion of taxes is undermining the global market as a whole. The Hidden Wealth of Nations is essential reading if we are to find a way to solve the problem of increasing inequality.
