Andrew Quinlan, the president of the CF&P Foundation, remarked "Even international bureaucracies such as the UN and the OECD have acknowledged that tax havens protect human
rights. It is therefore very disappointing that these bureaucracies nonetheless act as if extraterritorial tax claims are more important than defending against oppression."
The mini-documentary continues CF&P's exploration into why tax havens have proven so beneficial to the global economy. Part I explained the economic benefits of low-tax jurisdictions, and Part III will explore myths and facts
about tax havens (released next month).

Executive Summary for The Moral Case for Tax Havens:
This Center for Freedom and Prosperity Foundation video demonstrates that low-tax jurisdictions offer millions of people around the world a safe haven from tyrannical and oppressive
government. For this, and many other reasons, there is a powerful moral case for preserving and promoting tax havens. This mini-documentary is the second installment of a three-part series on the
beneficial impact of low-tax jurisdictions. In addition to showing how tax havens promote human rights and individual liberty, the video exposes the hypocritical anti-tax competition efforts of
statist international bureaucracies such as the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
