This paper is a survey of the literature that studies the end of bank secrecy in offshore financial centers. Research in this area can be read under two perspectives. On the one hand, the existence of the bank secrecy raises ethical issues like the respect of confidentiality, the equality of all before the taxation, tax evasion and the support for corrupted regimes.
