Summary

Why invest abroad? Today, growing numbers of investors are convinced that the United States is no longer the land of safety or opportunity when it comes to investments. Each country has different regulations, taxes and exchange restrictions -- as well as limitations on personal freedoms of speech, privacy and petition of grievances -- that will affect your decision about where to put your earnings. In this updated and revised edition of 'Using Offshore Havens for Privacy and Profit', Adam Starchild brings you up to date on the changes that have occurred in the high-stakes world of international investments, outlines the pros and cons of popular offshore havens and shares invaluable insights earned through a lifetime of financial planning. Expand your investment opportunities by finding out what the world's smartest investors have been doing all along.
