Secrecy jurisdictions: the good news keep on coming: Switzerland is broken

Posted on

Switzerland’s banking secrecy has been broken – without a referendum:

Swiss lawmakers on Thursday gave final approval to a treaty with the United States that will hand Washington thousands of files on suspected tax cheats, agreeing to drop plans to allow a referendum on the issue.

It’s been a good week for the opponents of secrecy jurisdictions as around the world their secrecy begins to collapse and their business model begins to fail.

I might just open a bottle tonight to quietly celebrate.
