The study, conducted by the Basel Institute on Governance, begins by examining the international standards regarding money laundering, their historical and political roots, and the driving forces that have shaped money laundering and its prevention over recent years. Then they focus on the four financial centers, each of which is important in cross-border banking, from their individual economic perspectives, first assessing their domestic importance and their position internationally, then reviewing the current laws of each according to a set format that covers criminal and supervisory regulations as well as mutual legal assistance and confiscation. A final section analyzes and critiques the research on the four countries. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
