How do local people benefit from being a tax haven?

Posted on

The Jersey Evening Post reported a week or so ago that the price of an average three bedroom house in the island is now £470,000, inflated of course by the influx of foreign (to Jersey) finance industry workers, who have the effect of also keeping local average wages down at £31,000 a year.

So how can it be claimed that local people benefit from Jersey being a tax haven?
