AbstractThe so-called "Paradise papers" revealed the vast scope of some small tropical nations roll in international money laundering and tax evasion. The impact of these tax havens includes funding terrorist violence, drug dealing, government corruption, etc. However, these small, generally poor nations find these banking practices useful for luring lucrative investments. France has publicly called for tax haven nations to be cut off from financial development and humanitarian support.
