It is all too easy in the immediate aftermath of a big story to jump to conclusions and miss the bigger picture. I believe that there is a real risk for offshore jurisdictions doing this with regards to the current global media firestorm around tax havens and hidden assets. The real risk, in my view, is not the short term reputational damage, but rather that much of the business done today offshore will migrate back onshore over time and this onshoring will devastate those economies without plans for how to deal with the “post offshore” world we may find evolving in the next few years.
