Not happy with the neutrality of this article at all. I accept views of OFCs can differ, but this article takes the "tax havens are implicitly evil" viewpoint and flogs it to death, but without managing to cite a single statistic or authority. The other view, that OFCs play a legitimate and integral part of the global economy (a view promoted by the IFC, EBRD and OPIC who drive the use of offshore structures when lending into developing economies with insufficient corporate legal infrastructure), just doesn't get a look in.

Took a run at reducing the amount of POV material. Historically, sheltering funds outside of the country made great sense and appears legitimate in the face of repressive regimes. Turns out to be a rather more difficult thing to put a good face on in the modern era - it is clear when you read the various websites offering their services that tax evasion is a significant driver. Regardless, an attempt was made to balance this. As always, be boldly brave if you don't like my changes.

@Legis: I agree, this article simply assumes that offshore investing is evil. I have added a {{POV}} tag to the top. Ottawahitech (talk) 13:47, 28 January 2017 (UTC)please ping me
